Remastered: Weekend of a Champion
Back in 1971, Roman Polanski documented a weekend spent with Jackie Stewart as the Formula 1 racing hero battled to win the Monaco Grand Prix. The film he made included intimate footage from behind the scenes, and some incredible shots of action both on the track, and off of it.
At the time the film was celebrated for being a very special glimpse into the private life of a world champion driver. Today it’s even more, Weekend of a Champion is a time machine – transporting the viewer straight back to the glory days of motor racing.
Recently the film was remastered, and the resulting piece is remarkable. Watch the thrilling high and crushing lows experienced by Jackie Stewart during his time behind the wheel.
