Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard’s been on NBC’s “Today” before, but probably not in this context. Howard shared insights about his upcoming film “Rush,” which chronicles the 1976 Formula One World Championship bout between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, earlier on Tuesday’s show.
And of all places to have the interview with Howard and Lauda, it was at the full Nurburgring Nordschleife – site of Lauda’s accident in 1976. The link is here.
