What is it that makes a man race? How does he balance courting
danger with ordinary daily life? What is it that compels him to
resist retirement? This definitive documentation of a racing season
- the 1972 Sports Car Manufacturer's Championship - offers fascinating
insights into the lives, loves and motivations of professional racing car
drivers...with terrific track action along the way.
Filmed in the style of cinema verite and narrated by Mario Andretti
(Ferrari 312PB) and Vic Elford (Alfa Romeo T33TT/3), the Speed
Merchants is a true representation of real men with real feelings,
underscored by a superb soundtrack, as we follow their 'journey'
through this exciting season.
