Win the DVD and book of 'The French Connection'

The classic 1971 film The French Connection won five Oscars, including one for Gene Hackman as the drug-busting detective Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle. What's less well known is that it was based on the real life case - told in Robin Moore's gripping bestseller - of the world's largest heroin smuggling operation.

The DVD and book twin pack is published by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and we have six to give away if you can answer this question correctly: The French Connection is famous for a race involving which vehicle - car, boat or bicycle?

Send your answers on an email or postcard marked "French Connection" to or Harvey McGavin at Admiral House, 66-68 East Smithfield, London E1W 1BX. Entries close August 25.
