The popularity of BriSCA F1 stock car racing, one of the most spectacular forms of motorsport in Britain, surged in the 1960s and continued – despite the country’s economic upheavals – through the 1970s and into the 1980s.
HEAVY METAL tells the story of the leading drivers of that era and their quest to become world champion – notably Stuart Smith, who would become the man to beat and the ultimate showman, his life-long friend Doug Cronshaw, an unassuming hero with a huge and loyal northern fan base, and Willie Harrison, a veteran who raced through four decades despite debilitating injuries suffered as a young child.
HEAVY METAL also features other famous names of the past and takes an in-depth look back at some of BriSCA F1s most memorable and, in some cases, most notorious races.
