Rowan Atkinson crashes at Goodwood Revival

To quote Harry Hogge (played by Robert Duvall) in Days of Thunder, "rubbin, son, is racin'." That can mean some unfortunate damage to high-end racing machinery, which may be repaired easily enough in stock car racing, but when it comes to vintage racing, the stakes can be that much higher.

Film: Newswire: Tom Cruise to make another auto racing movie

While at this point the Top Gun sequel probably only exists in Val Kilmer's very vivid hallucinations, Tom Cruise is still interested in returning to one of his vehicular-based successes, with the Days Of Thunder star planning to revisit the world of auto racing in the upcoming Go Like Hell. Based on A.J.

Report: Tom Cruise to play Carroll Shelby in 'Go Like Hell'

He isn't actually Microsoft's chief information officer either, having stepped down recently to "focus on personal projects," according to a statement issued by Redmond. Show More Summary

A Trailer For Ron Howard's Formula One Epic RUSH, Starring Chris Hemsworth!! DAYS OF THORNDER??

I've never actually seen a Formula One race, although a track was recently completed and opened here in Austin, so I'm hoping I can get out there next time around. Strangely, I've had Hans Zimmer's DAYS OF THUNDER theme stuck in my head as en earbug for two weeks now - not sure how or why this happened - but maybe this'll help to dislodge it. Show More Summary
