Corrected entry: In almost every scene of Garner in the Yamura, the roll bar does not clear his helmet, a flagrant violation of safety regs. This was because James Garner was so tall that even after removing the seat cushion, forcing him to sit right on the metal body pan, he still didn't sit low enough.
Corrected entry: In the last race of the movie, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza, the cars race on the fully combined 'figure eight' main circuit and oval. The film was made in 1966, supposedly depicting the 1965/66 World Championship season, but the last time the 'figure eight' circuit was actually used for a WC Grand Prix season in real life was in 1961.
