A trailer for Ron Howard's new Formula One film 'Rush' - which contains scenes filmed at Snetterton race track - has been released today.
The film focuses on the epic rivalry between Formula One legends James Hunt, played by Chris Hemsworth, and Niki Lauda, played by Daniel Bruhl, in the 1976 F1 season.
Hunt ultimately won the world driver's championship at the season's final race in Japan. The rain on that day played a leading role in the race.
Crowds flocked to Snetterton race circuit in May 2012 as classic racing cars from the 1970s were used to film scenes for the movie which opens on September 13.
