Video: Rothsport Racing 964s return to Baja, make Porsche history at Mexican 1000

2018 MEXICAN 1000 RACE FILM PREMIERES ON PCA.ORG

Last year, my "1000 Ways To Fail" 5-minute video was produced on a very small budget in just 4 weeks.

Today, the Porsche Club of America launched my 15 minute video "ICARUS" that features the same Rothsport Porsche 964s racing in the 2018 Baja Mexican 1000 Rally.

Thanks to Jeff Gamroth and Cameron Healy for hiring me to ramp up the production value and produce a true short film.

Enjoy!

Very cool. I had considered making my 911 into a Baja at one point. Got a VW instead...

A VW Bug with its short overhangs is an ideal ride for many of today's roads in America.

Love a Rally-build 911....even in stock-form they do well on a non-tarmac surface, but these 2 cars look fun.

I heard they may be going for more traditional Rally. Maybe Olympus and Oregon Trail?

Not sure how I missed this last year. Great video Randy! Thanks for putting that together and sharing with us all. What an experience for those guys. Would love to add that to the bucket list.
