I just finished viewing Trio at The Top. I was and still am a huge fan of CanAm and McLaren motor sports. What a fine job that was done to give credit to a trio of racing drivers who not only made international contributions to motor racing, but also to a countries legacy. What an amazing story of life so short, of dedication to one's best friends, and the tragedies of life. Ending on a high note, there will never be another real life experience like this. I salute the Kiwi's.

Wonderful series. I have been a fan of Team McLaren since I attended my first race, which was the 1970 Mosport Can-Am not two weeks after Bruce passed away. Also saw Peter Revson win the 1973 Canadian Grand Prix in a McLaren, only a few months before he died in South Africa. I had the pleasure of a brief chat with Denny Hulme while getting an autograph. I always appreciated that a former World Champion took the time to spend a couple of private moments with a young fan.
As a Canadian, I am always proud that we were the 'Can' in 'Can-Am', and that Mosport held more Can-Am races than any other circuit. I still dream of seeing a McLaren M20 thundering around my home track.

another group of racing legends that get more recognition in europe than in their own country what a shame they dont have the same level of respect at home as they have in europe as along with brabham they led the rest of the world in motorsport at the time and what a legacy bruce has left with the team that still bears his name.

I just came across this documentary. Great stuff! I was lucky enough to see Bruce, Denny and Chris race at several locations in the 1960s. In particular I remember Bruce and Chris driving their Mclaren M1s at the firsgt Can-Am race at St.Jovite in 1966. I was also there when Denny won the German Grand Prix at Nurburgring in 1967 - there's a video called 'The Ringmasters' which is solely about that race. This documentary is certainly the best one I've ever seen about these three drivers and their relationships with their families and other people. If there was a DVD available I'd certainly buy it.

Time for a DVD of this, I'm sure it would be a good seller here and overseas. My VHS copy is getting a bit worn.

Enfin un vrai film sur nos héros d'adolescence !
Si c'est possible d'obtenir ce film, en version DVD, il aurait un succès fou en France !
Quel bonheur de revoir ces 3 personnages Neo-zélandais depuis ma petite France !
