Help Finance More “GT Racer”

The producers of the marvelous TV series GT Racer have found themselves in an unfortunate position. Despite the popularity of the show and the devotion of fans, the networks that have financed the show are in their own financial troubles. As a result, GT Racer has fallen out of production.

Thankfully, they’ve turned to Kickstarter to try and let the fans finance the show directly. I love this approach and hope that they’ll meet their goal of the $6,000 required for post-production of their trip to the Portimão GP. You can contribute to the cause on their donation page, with gifts and accolades at various donation levels.

I want to see more GT Racer. You want to see more GT Racer. Let’s make it happen.

    Not to be crass, because I am a big fan of the series (own the boxed set) but why don’t all the rich egomaniacs featured on the show kick in some moolah and save it? 6K is a drop in the bucket for any one of those guys in the show… I love that series for the great camera work, sound work, and HD quality, but am I the only one who finds himself tiring of watching a bunch of rich guys abuse historic machinery for their gratification? (watching them hacksaw through the superleggera tubes of a crunched-up Aston DB6 at Spa made me want to run for the bathroom)

    You took the words right out of my mouth Automobiliac. I’m sure that between all of the owners of these cars (some valued over a million bucks I’m sure)they can come up with 6 freaking grand. Sell something from the stable for gods sake.

  4. Thanks for the blog (!!!!) and thanks for the responses.

    Some of those the rich egomaniacs in fact have come through. This is why we are actually going to be there. And the shoot is the lion-share of the budget.

    But you know how it is; nobody really wants to deal with other people’s problems.

    I also need to point out that a bunch of the backers on the Kickerstarter projects are from the racing community.

    I so appreciate everybody’s kind words about our work! Please do help, even if it is just to get a discounted DVD.

    Thanks so much.

    Alexander – please make these shows available online too – I’d pay to watch but I really don’t need a DVD.
