Niki Lauda's crashed recreated for Rush

Dale from Bridge to Gantry was on scene yesterday to record some genuine behind the scenes footage of the Ron Howard movie Rush. Watch the clip after the break.

Concentrating on the dramatic 1976 Formula One season, and the battle between Lauda and James Hunt for the world championship, Lauda’s crash will no doubt be central to the movie’s action.

Rush stars Australian actor Chris Hemsworth in the James Hunt role and is due for release in 2013.
