The film will be released in November, might be too early to ask this question.

FYC:
Senna (Documentary 2010

I prefer it over Rush and Ford v. Ferrari. Like Rush, it depicts a racing rivalry - Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost.

Don't believe that Formula One racing is rally racing (as implied in your question). Partly, Formula One cars aren't street legal.

RallyingRallying

Rally is a form of motorsport that takes place on public or private roads with modified production or specially built road-legal cars. It is distinguished by running not on a circuit, but instead in a point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points, leaving at regular intervals from one or more start points. Rallies may be won by pure speed within the stages or alternatively by driving to a predetermined ideal journey time within the stages.

That said? I'm not sure that any of these depict the above description of rally racing.

I am not going to but in the list a Documentary and compare it with two Biographies. That's a terrible idea.

You still need to reword your question and remove rally race (well the rally part of it). That critique still applies.

Hi Paok,

I haven't seen either movie, although I think I'll be seeing Ford/Ferrari in the next few days, but this seems like a good face-off. 

Could you add an apostrophe & "s" in the second sentence of the intro?

Two real life stories about car racing. Two movies in IMDb's top 250. Which one do you prefer?

Thanks. : )

Good Job Paok.
Glad you made those corrections suggested by Stephen.
I have driven a Rally Car in Snow and used that same Car also for Ice Racing.
This is a picture of a similar car. An early 1960s Saab 93 with a 750cc 3 cylinder 2 Stroke engine.
