    Leonard Maltin called it an "inconsequential racing yarn" ; the Radio Times said, "it's strong on atmosphere and story. Sadly, the film suffers from lack of pace, disappointing racing sequences and an overdose of sentimentality" ; but TV Guide called it a "good racetrack drama, with excellent performances all around."
