Although hardly box-office smashes, Le Mans and Grand Prix presided over a glut of motor racing movies in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Some were better than others Big-budget Japanese offering Safari 5flflflwas the highest-grossing movie in its 1969 home market - but wasn't released in Europe until a heavily edited version appeared in 1972.

EXCITING NEW developments in historic racing for 2011 have stirred up a hornets' nest. There is nothing controversial, however, about Motor Racing Legends' launch of a new series, backed by JD Classics, for actual former touring cars of the 1977 to 1985 era. The timing seems to be perfect. Potential competitors have been fired with enthusiasm, such is the nostalgia for those Alfas, BMWs, Fords, Jaguars and others that raced about 30 years ago. They have gathered dust for too long and anyone who...
