Synopsis Cast & Crew

Set against the golden age of Formula 1 racing, RUSH portrays the fast-paced, action-packed and exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the sport has ever witnessed James Hunt versus Niki Lauda and their illustrious Formula 1 racing teams, McLaren versus Ferrari.

Privileged, charismatic and handsome English playboy, James Hunt could not be more different from his reserved and methodical opponent, Austrian born Niki Lauda. RUSH follows their checkered personal lives both on and off the track and charts their rivalry from its inception in Formula 3.

Here they competed viciously against each other until Lauda's superior business acumen and surgeon like precision behind the wheel propelled him all the way to Formula 1; eventually landing him the number one spot at Ferrari.

However it was not long before unruly golden boy James Hunt fought his way into Formula 1, and into the hearts of a nation, dramatically seizing the world championship from Lauda and proving to the critics, and more importantly himself, that there was real substance beneath his stylish exterior.

Polar opposites pitted against each other in the most dangerous sport in the world, Hunt and Lauda were pushed to the breaking point of their physical and psychological endurance. In the final race to the chequered flag these two men knew there were no short cuts to victory and no margin for error. You make a mistake in this sport and you die. They lived on the edge. They lived for the moment. They lived for the RUSH.
