Italian Race (Italian: Veloce come il vento) is a 2016 Italian sports-drama film written and directed by Matteo Rovere.[1][2] It is loosely based on the true story of rally racing driver Carlo Capone.[3]


This story narrates the rapprochement between the young GT pilot Giulia and her drug addicted brother and ex GT pilot Loris. After the death of their father the two siblings and their younger brother must cohabit and live together. This encourages Loris to help Giulia on her journey as a GT pilot and to help her win the Italian Race: an illegal race that could bring back economic balance to the distraught family.
