Crash and Burn – official trailer

by Ed Foster on 10th November 2016

Tommy Byrne is arguably the greatest lost talent of motor racing. He briefly got to Formula 1 with Theodore in 1982, but after a falling out with the team, his top-line motor racing career was already nearing the end. He was quicker than both John Watson and Niki Lauda in a McLaren test (the prize for winning the 1982 Marlboro British F3 Championship), but he would never sit on the F1 grid again. 

There is a new documentary covering his extraordinary story – starring Grand Prix editor Mark Hughes – which will be in cinemas on December 2, 2016.
