INSPECTOR GAI is a comedy drama about the ongoing battle between a conscientious police traffic officer, played by Sergei Nikinenko, and a wealthy businessman, Nikita Mikhalkov.
Trunov, the businessman, regularly violates traffic laws but uses his position and power to avoid punishment from the zealous Inspector Zykin.
The film includes two scenes set at the local speedway stadium but the circuit, marked out in lanes, resembles more an athletics running track.
At least it is another example of the way speedway’s popularity in the 1970s and early 80s saw it feature in a number of the films produced by Soviet studios, in this case, Gorky Films, Moscow.
Is now released in DVD format
