Tim LeemingHow many of you have ever seen the movie "Grand Prix"?  John Frankenheimer directed this movie which won three Academy Awards.  I saw the movie when it first came out in the late 1960s at a theater in Norfolk, Virginia.  I went with three of my shipmates who wanted to see what auto racing was all about as all these guys were from the Northeast where, with the exception of Patrick Reynolds (who wasn't even born then),  knew only football, basketball, baseball and hockey.  One of the guys actually got "car sick" from watching all the in-car shots of at speed racing.
