Trivia

The reason Tempar's standard Volvo P1800 isn't seen is simply because he's he's undercover as he investigates, and pretends to be someone else (his typical alias, 'Simon Toombs'), and doesn't wish to give any hints of his actual identity. See more »

Roger Moore racing!
18 February 2019 | by svarooomSee all my reviews

Great to see Roger Moore behind the wheel of a Formula 1,2,3 car! Looks great in those goggles! Great episode on racing with some good footage of actual Grand Prix racing from that period(1965). This pre-date's James Garner and Steve McQueen in their 'Racing' movies...
