Format: Audio CD
Proof that Ustinov is a cultural treasure. This broad satire on fifties motor racing features Peter Ustinov providing not only all the voices (various announcers, officials, drivers and team owners) but also the sounds of the cars!
Wonderfully politically incorrect - the French are idle scroungers, the Italians always protesting, the Americans lazy and unionised, the English a bunch of incompetent amateurs, the Italians devious and political, the Germans militarily correct and the Russian observer is a spy - there's something to mildly offend everyone here.
Racing fans will recognise the parodies of the Vanwall, Ferrari, Gordini, Cunningham and Mercedes teams and recognise Gibraltar as a thinly-disguised Monaco - non-devotees will just enjoy Ustinov's incredible facility with words, accents, sounds, and his freewheeling imagination.
A fantastic hour's entertainment. Recommended to anyone who loves classic comedy or motor racing.

A fantastic CD well worth buying and listening to over and over. Peter Ustinov is an extraordinarily talented man and after hearing this CD its obvious that he possesses has the unique power to make people laugh continously throughout. Definitley worth the 5 stars, particularly for anyone who can manage that amount of voice/character changes and sound like a different person every time.

I was very satisfied with the prompt delivery of my order. I had lost my original LP record and was delighted to find a CD was available. Thank you -

This is a true piece of classic broadcasting in the same way as Bob Newhart and Gerald Hoffnung. It's a bit dated now (well a lot dated to be honest!) but as a throw-back to Formula 1 in the 50s it's pure genius with Ustinov at his best doing all the voices and engine sounds.

As for the petty squabbles between the drivers and officials - maybe it's not so dated after all!

One of the best of Ustinov's radio presentations. Most of the principal characters are immediately recognisable, because Ustinov was himself a Formula 1 racing enthusiast, knowing many of the drivers and managers personally, His brilliance as a comic and impersonator was not wasted.
