Factual error: Champ Cars run on Methanol which 1) burns with an invisible flame and 2) is extinguished by water. Therefore the car in the lake crash sequence would not burn or explode like that.
Continuity mistake: When Memo crashes into the lake the fuel leaks out and the car explodes. Naturally the explosion would have done some massive damage to the car. It then goes to an aerial view of the accident in the next shot and the car is in the same condition it was before it exploded. Then the next scene shows Joe in the garage looking at the wreckage, and the car is blackened and mangled.
Trivia: The manager of the Formula One team Williams (Frank Williams) moves around in a wheelchair, just like the manager in Driven. This is caused by a car accident.
Trivia: The reporter in the Toronto press conference is Brian Jennings, the film's visual effects supervisor.
Trivia: In the scene of real Champ car drivers doing pre-race rituals, Kenny Brack (the driver of the Shell car) is holding a photo of a baby and then tapes it inside his race suit. The baby you see in the picture is director Renny Harlin's son, Lukas.
