In this episode of the Automotive Podcast we talk about Burt Reynolds' performances in car movies, featuring Smokey and the Bandit and The Cannonball Run. We also look at the results of the International Motor Film Awards and get gooey over WRC cars of old.
But first, Chris and Marty discuss the winners of the International Motor Film Awards (https://www.motorfilmawards.com/results), discuss the new Rapid Response documentary (https://wtf1.com/post/new-documentary-rapid-response-takes-a-tough-look-at-safety-advances-in-indycar/) and Marty breaks the Fast & Furious silence with the Fast & Furious ‘Million Dollar Showcar’ - Tavarish’s Fast 8 Murci rebuild project (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g2ljcLltgI&list=PLrvMJaD0-PufLw5XBhSl0Ss6qfs4uhKkb).
For this episode, Marty discusses Smokey and the Bandit (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0076729/) while Chris revists an iconic film of his youth, The Cannonball Run (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0082136/).
In this week's online highlights, Marty’s been watching Henry Catchpole driving Colin McRae’s Impreza WRC car (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eZgClzYzMaU) and has been making flat four turbo noises ever since, and Chris has found interesting footage of an E39 M5's front suspension being driven round a simulated Nurburgring (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3asX9iRQNs). Can you guess the corners?
