A stylish title sequence sets the tone for this NFU short on New Zealand motor racing in the early 60s. Shot during the sports' golden age it begins with amateurs competing in Dunedin's 'round the town' race (won by future Formula One champ Denis Hulme), then shifts north to Auckland for the New Zealand International Grand Prix. 60'000 spectators watch world champion Jack Brabham and local hero Bruce McLaren battle for the title. Includes classic summer shots of the world's top drivers relaxing on the beach, and Arnold Glass teaches McLaren to waterski.
