with special guest

Dr. Stephen Olvey

Meet the author of Rapid Response and the Medical Director for the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) racing series (1979-2003). Dr. Olvey will host a Q&A Session after the film and sign books.

Dr Stephen Olvey has been involved in saving lives and improving safety in motorsports for nearly 50 years, primarily in his role as Medical Director for the Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) racing series in the US, a position that he held from 1979 to 2003. He remains active in motorsports as a member of the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) Medical Commission, a consultant to the Indy Car Series and Motor Sports Director of the University of Miami Concussion Program. He is an associate professor of clinical Neurology and Neurosurgery at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. As Medical Director for Championship Auto Racing Teams (CART) in the USA, Dr. Olvey helped save Alex Zanardi's life - hence Alex's foreword to the book. Dr. Olvey will be hosting a Q&A with the audience immediately after the conclusion of the film; and will also be available for a book signing before and after the screening.

Rapid Response is a fast-paced documentary that tells the story of medical and safety professionals who refused to accept the high mortality rate among American race car drivers, fundamentally altering the history of motorsports. Starring Stephen Olvey, Terry Trammell, Mario Andretti, Bobby Unser, Helio Castroneves, and others.

 

In the 1960s, in racing, accidents were commonplace… so were fatalities. Safety was barely an afterthought. Drivers accepted this as part of the job and continued to take the track, eager to please fans, make money, and prove that they had what it took to survive.  PG-13 Some Intense Crash Sequence
