Filming has started at Snetterton Circuit in Norfolk for a new Hollywood film.

The Formula One movie 'Rush' is being shot there over the next couple of days.

It's directed by director Ron Howard who also did films like 'Apollo 13', 'The Da Vinci Code,' and 'A Beautiful Mind.'

It's about the rivalry between racing drivers James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1970's and 80's.

It stars Olivia Wilde and Chris Hemsworth and is due for release at the end of this year. 

Fans are able to go and watch filming and are being encouraged to dress in period costumes. 

Ron Howard wrote on Twitter: "Historic F1 cars will be running Tues at Snetterton. Come watch filming/racing get in spirit dress 70s :-)"
