The 24 Hour War Trailer

"It was the greatest rivalry in the history of racing…" That sounds gnarly. Chassy Media has debuted a trailer for the racing documentary titled The 24 Hour War, about the rivalry between Henry Ford II and Enzo Ferrari. Specifically, this focuses on the battle between the two automakers and their race cars that took place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in the 1960s. The story goes that, after the rise of Ferrari in the 60s, Henry Ford tried to just buy Ferrari outright since they didn't have much to compete with. Enzo Ferrari eventually said no, and Henry Ford was so upset he responded by building his own cars that could challenge the red Ferraris on the racetrack. This seems like a fun history lesson about the power of rivalries.

Here's the trailer for Nate Adams & Adam Carolla's documentary The 24 Hour War, in high def via Apple:

The 24 Hour War Poster

The Ford/Ferrari rivalry at Le Mans is one of the most famous in racing history. It started in 1963 when Henry Ford II tried to buy Ferrari to save the ailing Ford Motor Company, which was being crushed by GM and the Corvette on the track and at the dealerships. After months of negotiation, Enzo Ferrari said no, refusing to allow Ford to interfere with what he loved the most: racing. Henry Ford II was furious and vowed to build a racecar that would dethrone Ferrari. The 24 Hour War is co-directed by Nate Adams (Bad Ass Bikers) & actor-comedian Adam Carolla (Road Hard), both of whom also co-directed the doc Winning: The Racing Life of Paul Newman previously. Chassy Media will open The 24 Hour War in select theaters starting this November, no exact date is set yet. Stay tuned for more info. Excited to see this doc?

    I'm ready to see this film TODAY! The trailer was awesome. (I've always been a little sad that Steve McQueen's "Le Mans" (1971) was made after Ford's four straight years of Le Mans's wins. Had Michael Delaney been battling the factory Ferraris in a John Wyer Gulf-Ford GT, the film would have been much better.
