Over an hour of racing excitement…

…if you can tolerate old 8mm home movies. Riverside International Raceway, Stardust Raceway, Fontana, Ontario Motor speedway, and Mid Ohio road courses. Can Am, Trans Am, SCCA club events, drag racing, and NASCAR. Mercifully spliced from hundreds of feet of movie film. The soundtrack is of various racing cars including Porsche, a Ferrari 12 a Monza in 1969, Formula One, NASCAR, Top Fuel, a BRM V16, Can Am, and Trans Am. Some oldies by Dinah Shore, and Pink Floyd. And a 1961 Chevrolet promotional recording featuring Zora Arkus Duntov.

12/13/16 update. The soundtrack is different in this original version of the video. Period oldies plus the narration of Mike Parris in his ride in a Porsche 917 around RIR.

    GREAT stuff! Thank you for sharing.

    I cannot get the movie but am delighted with you and the Porsche.

    I guess it went from there.

    All the best,
