Speed Driver (1980)

2.5 out of 5

Speed Driver is a motor racing themed crime film from Stelvio Massi.

When a small time hustler Rudi wins money from rivals in a series of motorcycle based challenges he comes to the attention of criminal elements who offer him a route into professional motor racing with the aim of manipulating him into acting as a mule for their illicit cargo of narcotics. Starring Fabio Testi as Rudi, the eponymous Speed Driver, and Senta Berger in a top billed love interest role this is a passable film even if the results are a somewhat underwhelming experience.
