These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
What's with the big rush at the end of the movie? It's a rally. If two or more drivers arrive at the finish line within seconds of one another, then whoever started last is pretty much going to win at that point.
Especially in The Seventies, Americans expected a race to be won by whoever finishes first — Rally never caught on in America. Chalk it up to Viewers Are Morons.
