Sly Believes In His Drivers

Actor SYLVESTER STALLONE is committed to producing racing film CHAMPS - because Champcar drivers are a lot sterner than Formula 1 racers.

The COPLAND star is helming the new film, which is said to be "a ROCKY for races" - and has the greatest respect for the people he's trying to portray.

He says, "These are very special people who get involved in a life and death, flesh and blood situation every day of their lives. "There's not much difference between them and young astronauts. The training and the dangers are perhaps even more."
