Win a pair of tickets to see “Le Mans” at the IFI on Monday

As you may have read here, Steve McQueen’s famous film Le Mans, is showing in the Irish Film Institute on Monday. Already there has been great interest from the Motorsport community, and it seems the evening has turned into something of a social event already!

“Steve McQueen plays a champion car racer haunted by the death of a friend in an accident he might have inadvertently caused. Gearing up for the Le Mans 24-hour endurance challenge, the toughest racing event in the world, he enters into an ambiguous relationship with his dead friend’s widow.

 A passion project for McQueen, himself an accomplished driver, Le Mans straddles the divide between fiction and documentary in its breathtakingly realised, thrillingly kinetic car racing sequences that demand to be experienced in glorious 70mm.
This 70mm screening is dedicated to the memory of former IFI projectionist Brian Guckian, one of the format’s great champions.”

 

The lovely people in the IFI have been kind enough to give us a pair of tickets for Monday and you can win them by just mailing info@motorsport.ie telling us the name of McQueen’s character in the film.

Entries close at 6pm on Friday the 27th November and a name will be randomly be selected from the correct entries. Please ensure you are able to attend the showing (Dublin city centre at 6:30pm)
