The project is a collaboration between three talented individuals: Director and Editor Steven Flor, Writer and Producer Martin Galan, and Sound Recording Specialist Mark Laccay. To put together this film, they've sorted through more than 200 hours of lost footage and photos from private collections, and interviewed racing legends to get an in depth view of what it was like to race back in the glory days.
Don't think that this is merely a documentary of what transpired in the past. It's a dire attempt to capture the emotions of the Filipino race car drivers and organizers that helped shape the country's rich motor racing heritage.
As promising as the project is, the group, however, needs our to help to raise the budget for the premier and to come up with the DVD copies they'll eventually sell. To be exact, they need P150,000 before the 15th of November. But here's the good thing. You can now pre-order your DVD copy to support their fundraiser.
For P1,500, you get a DVD copy of “Racing with Legends” delivered to your doorstep. Or perhaps you'd want to watch the exclusive premier with your friend for P2,000 and get a chance to meet and greet the racing legends. But if you really want to be part of history, P5,000 gets invites to the premier and a DVD copy with your name will be credited in the sleeve.
