53rd Targa Florio

Some wonderful footage from the ’69 Targa Florio.

I like the lo-fi digitization technique here.. you can hear the 8mm projector whirring away, presumably while the screen was shot with a digital camcorder. The more ingenuity that can bring us historic footage like this, the better.

    This is great vintage footage … it would be fantastic if it was narrated. You can actually see the winning 908 Spyder No.266!
    I did a sketch referring to the 1973 Targa Florio, featuring Herbert Muller and his Porsche Carrera RSR racing through a village in Sicily.
