Ferrari: Race To Immortality tells the story of the Scuderia Ferrari’s tumultuous early years in the 1950s, giving audiences extraordinary insight into the iconic brand, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year. The film will be released in cinemas on Friday 3 November and available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms on Monday 6 November.
It’s the 1950s… the dawn of the iconic Scuderia Ferrari in the Formula One World Championship and deadliest decade in motor racing history. As cars pushed the limits of human ingenuity, drivers lived on a knife edge between life and death. At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari, a towering figure in motor racing and patriarch of Ferrari who dared to dream about speed in ways nobody else could. Amidst the stiff competition within his team, two of its stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, decided that their friendship was as important as winning the next race. The film also features archive footage of Eugenio Castellotti, Luigi Musso and Alfonso de Portago – all legends of the Scuderia Ferrari team.
Directed by sports filmmaker, Daryl Goodrich, the film tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs and tragedy of Ferrari’s most decorated drivers in an era where it was la dolce vita during the week and a coin toss of whether they lived or died on the weekend.
