I've posted a few vidcaps from Winning here:
I opened the link and there doesn't seem to be anything about Winning there. There is though a tantalising shot of a fantastic looking garage with two ur quattros and what I guess is two 911/912s under car covers, along with a few shots of Bay City air show.
Is Bay City a real place then? I thought it was a fictitious city where Starsky and Hutch was set.
Well done for starting a thread on Winning though. Grand Prix seems to have (deservedly) had a lot of attention in this forum - is this now time for Winning to be in the spotlight for a while?
Nobody start a thread on Driven though please - a couple of hours of my life that I'll never get back was spent watching it (foolishly I stuck with it, in the hope it might improve), and that's as much attention as I ever want to give it.

A rather lifeless racing film about a cool and aloof driver (Paul Newman), the floozie who marries him (Joanne Woodward), and the driver's cuckolding rival/friend (Robert Wagner). To some extent, this film endeavors to be for the Indy 500 what Grand Prix was for F1. Owing to a pedestrian script and indifferent acting, however, Winning largely loses in this effort. A pity, because the Indy 500 deserves a truly masterful filmic treatment. We still wait.
