“There’s a helluva lot more action and crashes just in the trailer for MIDNITE SPARES than there is in the first two FAST AND FURIOUS movies put together!”- Quentin Tarantino

They didn’t get angry… they got even.

Set against a background of high-risk sprintcar driving, MIDNIGHT SPARES tells the action-packed story of a motley team of grease monkeys and speedway freaks who take on a massive car stealing and stripping racket in the west of Sydney.They quickly discover that they’re not only battling a tough and highly organised auto crime cartel – but also the bent cops who protect them.Packed with jaw-dropping crashes and smashes, bitumen-burning chases and adrenaline-pumping speedway action, MIDNITE SPARES features scene-stealing performances from Ozploitation superstars Bruce Spence and David Argue, alongside Gia Carides (in her film debut) and spunky Amanda Dole (1983 Playmate of the Year).
