Rapid Response is a fascinating fast-paced motorsports documentary that tells the story of medical and safety professionals who refused to accept the high mortality rate among American race car drivers.
In 1966 medical student and racing fan Stephen Olvey gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is asked to volunteer at the Indianapolis 500 on their medical team. What started as an insider view of a sport he loved, quickly devolves before his eyes as he sees the level of medical support and life saving capabilities at almost any racetrack worldwide is terrifyingly inadequate.

Dr. Olvey was soon joined by Dr. Terry Trammell a longtime colleague and friend at Indianapolis Methodist Hospital. They set off on a mission to build a team to apply science to transform motorsports from
the most deadly form of sport to one of the safest.
Based on the book "Rapid Response - My Life as a Motorsports Life Saver" by Dr. Olvey, with direct commentary by both Dr. Olvey and Dr. Trammell, the movie highlights the new era safety teams, especially at the Indianapolis 500, which is in the forefront of today's motorsports safety programs. The movie features interviews with drivers Mario Andretti, Bobby Unser, Al Unser, Parnelli Jones, Rick Mears, and others.

Co-Producer Michael Miles is also from Indianapolis and huge Indy 500 racing fan. In a strange twist of fate, Miles is also long time surgery patient of Dr. Trammell. Said Miles, "Rapid Response has been a passion project of mine as both a documentary filmmaker and motorsports fan for years.My partner, Roger Hinze, and I could not be any more proud of our film. This is a movie not only for motorsports fans, but for all audiences. This a true story told by the men who changed the culture of an entire sport through the application of science."

Please Note:
Dr. Stephen Olvey, Dr. Terry Trammel and Michael Miles are available for interviews.
