Rush will send you to Silverstone

Want a chance to win a trip to Silverstone, simply by watching the best racing movie in the past few years?

RUSH chronicles an incredibly fast, and scary time in motorsports.

The film is all about the rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt, the 1976 season, and the story surrounding the dangerous era of Formula One racing.

Up and coming drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt were both given the opportunity to race in the best cars on the grid, and began a dominating assault on the season. Lauda and Hunt split wins throughout the season, with Lauda edging Hunt in the point standings.

But then, on a rainy day in Germany, Lauda suffered a massive shunt at the Nurburgring that sent him to hospital with severe burns and life threatening injuries.

During his recovery, Hunt closed the gap in the points standings until only weeks after the incident, Lauda got back into the car and challenged Hunt to the very last race of the season.

The story gives a great representation of the incredibly tough recovery Lauda had to endure after his accident, and Hunt's personal challenges with success.

It is not everyday that someone comes along to do a racing movie of this magnitude, but Ron Howard came along and did a fantastic job.

Good racing movies are few and far between. Much like Le Mans, Rush hit the nail on the head. Between the incredibly beautiful old Formula One cars, to the sounds of the engines, you will not be dissapointed.

Now, with the release of this great film on Sky Store, you are invited to get closer to Formula One than ever before.

Rent Rush from Sky Store and be automatically entered to win a weekend at Silverstone to witness the 2014 British Grand Prix.
