Ferrari – Race to Immortality

F1PPThe 1950s. Dawn of the iconic Scuderia Ferrari in the Formula One World Championship and deadliest decade in motor racing history. As cars pushed the limits of human ingenuity, drivers lived on a knife edge between life and death.

At the centre of it all was Enzo Ferrari, a towering figure in motor racing and patriarch of Ferrari who dared to dream about speed in ways nobody else could. Amidst the stiff competition within his team, two of its stars, Peter Collins and Mike Hawthorn, decided that their friendship was as important as winning the next race.

Ferrari: Race to Immortality tells the story of the loves and losses, triumphs and tragedy of Ferrari’s most decorated drivers in an era where it was la dolce vita during the week and a coin toss of whether they lived or died on the weekend.
