I bought it back as soon as it came out. I didn't see many errors......Went to a lot of road races in 1960's So Cal with Dad and Valvoline....movie even had period correct Valvoline track side signs!!!

Great movie - Hollywooded up a little but not nearly as bad as some.

I loved that scene where Ken Miles(Bale) is working in the airport garage listening to the Le Mans race and the passing lights from a jet make the cars parked nearby move in silhouette.

A shame they kept all of Catriona Balfe's wardrobe on. She's a total, head-to-toe babe as we've seen in the Outlander series.

Good movie. If you are interested in this at all, I highly recommend the book "Go Like Hell: Ford, Ferrari, and Their Battle for Speed and Glory at Le Mans." It covers the same stuff as the movie, but is more accurate without the Hollywood changes to the story, but also it covers a LOT more ground. It goes over the details of the backstory, the development and testing, the races and failures, the further development and testing, etc. in addition to also actually looking at the Ferrari side of the story, which is really interesting as well.
