Steve McQueen also made a movie called Lemans. And although the movie sucked. The racing scenes were and still are some of the best on film.
It's worth it for that alone.
It's amazing that this movie got made at all. The racing scenes are great, but you are right, the movie itself is sketchy. How the movie got made is way more interesting than the movie itself. The racing scenes, however, set the bar.
