Everyone loves an underdog!
In The Big Engine That Could, a group of regular guys
participates in The 25 Hours of Thunderhill, the longest endurance
race on the US road racing calendar.
Not only that, they have selected an unlikely beast of a car to
race – the Ford Mustang – an American icon that is bigger and
heavier and technologically simpler than the competition.
But they have a weapon, not exactly secret: the 450 hp Boss 302
V-8 from Ford Racing.
Will The Big Engine, and a lot of heart from Team Winding Road’s
16 crew members, be enough to finish this grueling race and
possibly stand on the podium in class in the December 2013 running
of the 25 Hours?
Win or lose, The Big Engine That Could will be a film of the
process, the thrills and the problems of endurance racing, with
behind the scenes coverage of the team's progress and plenty of
Very interesting DVD

I bought this hoping for some in depth looks at the nuts and bolts of the car build itself, and I was a little disappointed in that regard (hence the 4 stars), but the show was a very enjoyable look at race day at Thunderhill. Good production values and some really cool in car shots.
The Big Engine That Did
From Jon Valin - Film Critc of Cincinatti, Ohio on 9/17/2014.
I’m not a particular fan of car racing, but I did own a small-block Ford V-8 back in the day, and watching a Ford Racing version of a Boss 302S Mustang being driven to unlikely victory in the 2013 running of the “25 Hours of Thunderhill” endurance race brought back hormone-stoked memories of my youth. The Big Engine That Could—an expertly made film about a race-mad but inexperienced team (this was only their second outing) of amateur drivers, mechanics, and support staff from Winding Road magazine . . .

From James Juhl of Omaha, Nebraska on 9/17/2014.
I've been a Mustang fan for a long time and it was cool to see this story about a Mustang winning its class. I can't wait until the Paul Brown movie is out (even though it's production quality is a little lacking compared to this). I called this a trimmed down version of the Patrick Dempsey Le Mans special Velocity had on. Except it was better because it was a Mustang. I would have like some extra features though or it could have even been a little longer.

I might be very biased because I was on the team but this is an amazing documentary and video.
