Just stumbled across this

It is a nonstory noncharacter visual tone poem depicting the graphic beauty of a car going at full speed, and the only sound in it is the roar of the car's engine. Shot in color with a 14 man student crew, it was filmed at Willow Springs Raceway, north of Los Angeles, CA"
EDIT: ... AND .... thankfully Brock was a better designer than actor

Reason: Pete Brock the Cobra Daytona designer, not the Aussie driver
