Full Description

Colour 25 mins. NFU Film Information Sheet No. 563 Cat. Refs. 1984-85 p.33; 1986-87 p.43. Success as a motor racing driver depends on skill and chance. Formula Pacific champion Dave MacMillan became New Zealand champion partly due to the collision of another driver. Then, as series leader in America he was put out of the running by a near fatal accident. What qualities does one need to endure as a driver in this most dangerous of sports? How much of the success of the public heroes depends on the work on unseen mechanics? 'Turn of the Wheel' filmed in New Zealand (Aurora series) and U.S.A. (Riverside and Phoenix - the 'Robert Bush' Super V series) captures one of the most spectacular accidents to occur in New Zealand's motor racing history. WHITE WATER RIDE
