Thumbs up The legend of Tommy Byrne.. A must watch for F1 fans

.
I would image 99% of Formula 1 fans have never heard of Tommy Byrne.


Well if you haven't, here's a great BBC documentary of all I can describe as an absolute legend.


A true "Rags to Rags" story... For a fleeting moment in the early 80s, Tommy Byrne was the world's greatest driver, the motor racing equivalent of George Best and Muhammad Ali all rolled into one.


Hope the following links work.


UK users : BBC One - Crash and Burn

Toronto enthusiast shop Mini Grind has an interesting “Movie Night” coming up.



Movie Night - CRASH AND BURN!!
MINIGRID presents the Canadian premier of 'CRASH AND BURN'.
The story of Formula 1’s bad boy. The legend that nearly was. Crash & Burn tells the story of Dundalk-born Tommy Byrne, who for a fleeting moment in the early 80s was the world’s greatest driver. The motor racing equivalent of George Best and Muhammad Ali all rolled into one, Tommy Byrne went from driving a Mini Cooper in stock-car racing to the big-time in Formula One in a little over four years and was a serious rival of Ayrton Senna’s.

“Gripping.” The Guardian

The man is a Legend in my opinion.. He's like a Michael Dunlop on four wheels.

James. Whatever you do, DON'T put your credit card details on any site links posted on this thread or for that matter, any forum posted threads..

If you do a search on YouTube or Google for Tommy Byrne Crash and Burn film 2016, I'm sure you'll come up with a free, safe link for this film in your part of the World.

I actually bought the DVD of the film on Amazon, as my way of hopefully giving some funds to Tommy at this stage in his life.. I don't know if he'll receive any royalties from the film, but I hope he does.
