Rush movie shoot wraps at Donington

Shooting of Ron Howard’s Hunt/Lauda movie Rush concluded at Donington Park today after an intense three-month schedule that began in London back on February 22.

Since then the Rush crew has visited Brands Hatch, Crystal Palace, Snetterton and Cadwell Park as well as spending a large chunk of time at its own specially created pit/paddock facility at Blackbushe airfield.

There was also a foray to Germany, which included a recreation of Lauda’s 1976 crash at the original site at the Nurburgring.

While the shoot is over the hard work is just starting for Howard, who will be flat out in the coming months in conjunction with his long time editor Dan Hanley. Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer is providing the score. The film is targeted for a release early next year.
