A trailer for the new blockbuster film Rush, partly filmed at Cadwell Park near Louth, is taking the internet by storm.

The Ron Howard-directed £65million film re-tells the real-life rivalry between Formula 1 drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

After a catastrophic crash at the 1976 German Grand Prix at the Nürburgring that could have killed him, Niki Lauda, played by Daniel Brühl, returns to face his rival James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) in their pursuit of the 1976 World Championship at Fuji in Japan.

The film was written by Frost/Nixon’s Peter Morgan and will be be released to the cinemas on or around September 13.
