New Australian Motorsport Documentary Premieres
A new feature-length Australian motorsport documentary, Ramblin’ Racer, is set to premiere this weekend at the Vision Splendid Outback Film Festival, hosted in the rural Queensland town of Winton.
Over a decade in the making, the 90-minute long doco follows the trials and tribulations of two best mates as they set on a climb up the motorsport ladder.
Starring Tim Boyle, a construction manager, and Phil Robinson, an accountant, Ramblin’ Racer follows their journey from building a pair of Queensland Gemini Series racers in their Brisbane garage to competing in V8 Utes on the streets of Surfers Paradise.
As we featured last year, Geminis has been a Sunshine State success story for over four decades, churning out drivers such as Tony Longhurst, Paul Morris, Troy Dunstan, Kevin Heffernan, Wayne Park and Craig Harris, amongst many.
The documentary is directed and produced by Neil McGregor, who previously directed the film The Little Things, and has also worked on locally produced blockbusters such as Aquaman, Thor: Ragnarok, Pacific Rim: Uprising, Godzilla Vs Kong, amongst others.
Ramblin’ Racers airs for the first time this Sunday at 8:30pm at the Royal Open Air Theatre in Winton.
