Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman

Recommended Posts

Just watched this on Amazon prime. Great movie and there is alot of really cool old Datsuns in it. I hadn't heard of it and thought I would let people know about it.  Here is the trailer

I watched it a couple months ago. I only began following racing closely after he was past his "prime" so I didnt realize what a good driver he really was. Nor did I know he raced full 10-13 race seasons with testing in between.

 

I tried to talk to him on the grid at Daytona one year when he was 60 or something. Thought he was a A-hole. But after seeing the movie, I realize how much fan/media attention he had to deal with. He actually ran over a photographer at Lemans.

 

Adam Carolla did the movie. Great footage and interviews with Bob Sharpe.

Carolla is a big Newman car collector. He's got a number of the former Newman/Sharp cars in his collection. On his podcast he said the next doc they're going to do is about Ford taking the GT40 to LeMans.
