Please, please don't waste your time and money on this. It is a travesty that people thought that this was worth being made into a tv programme and film. A brief summary is that tv celebrity chef has always had a passion for cars. He now has the money to spend nearly a million quid on a 1948 Maserati. However having it rebuilt, he ignores warnings to keep the engine revs down and the result is that the thing blows up on the first day of the event.
The rest of this sorry effort is spent showing Martin moping and rather amateur shots of his rival competitors. I wanted to see shots of the country, the people and more cars but got none of that. If you want the true atmosphere of the Mille Miglia get hold of the collected writings of Denis Jenkinson called Jenks where you will find his report on the 1955 record breaking run with Sterling Moss. Now that book is worth the money JUST for that article. I don't mind celebrities indulging their whims as long if it makes good viewing like McGregor and Boorman. This is just rubbish, don't waste your money.
