"To be honoring my father here at Sherwood means a lot to me. He was such a legendary figure from that era of racing that is so revered today by racing enthusiasts, historians, and collectors of the fine cars that came out of that period. To imagine a race track full of GT40s, Ferrari P3s and Porsche 906s, and even the Chaparral is truly amazing.
It was so much fun to be a part of the making of this film. To be on set here in CA where the original Le Mans pit lane was built to incredibly exact detail was surreal.
I remember going to that race for the first time with my father as a teenager and hanging out in those old pit garages. So to see it recreated this authentically for the big screen with A-list actors and action packed scenes is almost too good to be true."
- Derek Hill (Derek is the son of F1 World Champ and three-time Le Mans winner, Phil Hill, stunt drove and doubled for actors in the making of the film. Derek’s father played a significant role in the development of the GT40 in ’64 and ’65)
