French-Canadian father and son actors, Daniel and Manuel Gelin, starred as a father and son in this racing car series packed with action. Joseph Sinclair (Daniel Gelin), head of the Sinclair racing team where victory and glory were mixed with disappointment, frustration and defeat, had lost one son in a race and was initially reluctant to offer a driving position to his headstrong younger son, Luc (Manuel Gelin). Complicating matters were an eccentric team sponsor, Remi Chazelles (Denis Savignat), the personal problems of team driver Daniel Hardy (Serge Dupire), a rival Franco-American team and its aggressive female press attache (Domini Blythe) and the fact that death lay in wait around every turn of the racing track.
