'Rush', the Formula 1 movie partly made in the Midlands, is up for four awards at tonight's Baftas in London.

The movie was partly filmed at Leicester's Donington Park - and features Rob Austin from Worcestershire - who also stars as an extra in the movie.

It tells the story of the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda during the 1976 F1 season.

In the Outstanding British film catergory it is up against 'Gravity' and 'Philomena'.
