RUSH, the Formula 1 film charting the 1976 World Championship battle between James Hunt and Niki Lauda, has picked up the ‘Best Editing’ award at the EE British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs), which were held overnight in London.

The film’s chief editors, Daniel P. Hanley and Mike Hill, beat home the editors from fellow nominees 12 Years a Slave, Captain Phillips, Gravity and The Wolf of Wall Street to claim the film’s first major award ceremony win.

RUSH – a British film production – received four nominations in Britain’s version of the Academy Awards, with recognition in other categories including Best Sound, Outstanding British Film and Best Supporting Actor (Daniel Brühl).
