Gregory Campbell – A Rennfilms Profile

So excited to share our recently completed profile film on mechanic, designer, racer, fabricator and all around great guy – Gregory Campbell.  We first met Gregory and his wife Marianne at the Seattle Historic Races in July of 2015 while we were filming A Passion for Historic Racing and although he seemed quiet at first, he got our attention quickly as we watched him drop his motor, with no assistance, after a morning session one day and was back up and running by the afternoon – in a parking lot with limited tools.  After that we chatted a bit and then saw them again at Rennsport Reunion V at Laguna Seca last autumn, where got to know them a lot better.  Gregory is one of those really aspirational guys – he’s a real life Macguyver – who seems to just be able to do it all.  He can make and fix just about anything and he is a force to be reckoned with on the track.  We love the cars, but ultimately it is the people and personalities behind them that make this community as rich as it is.  Give the film a look HERE.

Pebble Beach and the 1949 Porsche 356/2 SL

What can you say about Car Week in Monterey other than that it is just utterly overwhelming.  We arrived as rookies to the experience half way into the week – primarily to focus on the arrival at Pebble Beach of a very special Porsche – the 1949 356/2 SL – and were just immediately blown away by the sheer number of people and amazing cars on the Peninsula.  In addition to documenting the SL, we spent several days at Laguna Seca Raceway connecting with friends who were driving, took in the Werks Reunion and also enjoyed the Quail Motorsports Gathering.  This was about 10% of what the week afforded, where even the traffic jams offered enjoyment and viewing of some of the best cars in the world.  Simply amazing.

All of that said, we were there to document in still images and film the re-debut of the SL that has just completed restoration under the hand of Rod Emory and is owned by Cameron Healy.  We are currently working on a feature documentary on it’s history (which is nothing short of incredible), it’s loss (and subsequent re-discovery) to the world and it’s restoration, so you will continue to see a lot more from us on this amazing car.  Big thank you’s go out to Rod, Cameron and their families for hosting us to such a wonderful week in Monterey.
