This really cool video came across our desk: GRIDLIFE Midwest Festival’s GLTC race shot on Super 8. There’s footage of the general event as well, and the way it’s creator Nick Shirrell sync’d it up to sound from a vintage race video and added some 1960s font gets a huge thumbs-up from us! For fellow photographic nerds, the film used is Kodak 50D and 200T; film known for having great exposure lattitude and grain. How fitting for footage shot on a Midwestern Summer weekend?

Shirrell’s team, For the Sake of Racing, ran their Mercedes 190E in the race which they normally run in ChampCar.
