Rush DVD and Blu-ray competition winners

Wednesday, January 29 2014

Motor racing blockbuster Rush was released on DVD and Blu-ray last Monday (27 January). Over the last weekend, we ran a competition to win one of five copies thanks to STUDIOCANAL!

Rush tells the story of Formula 1 rivals James Hunt and Niki Lauda, with particular focus on the tumultuous 1976 season, when both drivers went head-to-head for the World Championship. The British Grand Prix of that year was held at Brands Hatch, and the venue, along with MSV circuits Snetterton and Cadwell Park, was used to film several scenes in the production.

Rush BlurayThe movie was directed by Academy Award winner Ron Howard and written by Peter Morgan, the pair having previously collaborated on acclaimed production Frost/Nixon. It was given a glowing reception during its cinematic release last September and has been nominated in the Golden Globes and BAFTA awards.

A prime contender for the best live action motor racing film ever made, Rush is now available to buy on DVD and Blu-ray and as a download.

The DVD and Blu-ray release also includes deleted scenes, making of documentary and 'The Real Story of Rush' feature.

We asked who was officially declared the winner of the 1976 British Grand Prix, which was held at Brands Hatch. Whilst James Hunt won on the road, the result was later overturned, and Niki Lauda recorded as the victor. Amongst those who gave this answer were Brent James Farrell, Shawn Herrington, Tony King, Stephen Moll and Steve Wickens. All five will be receiving their prize shortly, but if you didn't win, remember that you can buy the DVD or Blu-Ray from all good stockists now!
