Well, here's my personal review... I don't want to get off on a rant here,
but... The Delete key is usually on the right!
I saw it tonight in SF. I'm amazed at how bad the technical stuff was. Fake
wheels, Indy type cars on display in a building that suddenly grow
self-starters and can be driven right out of the building and onto the

I think the average (male) motorsports enthusiast will enjoy it nonetheless,
and the non-racing oriented (male) public will enjoy it even more. It's
possible I'm being overly nice, here. Female audiences will need some
tolerance for tight shorts with some cheekiness, etc., if you know what I
