Big Red Camaro: Driving Fast & Taking Chances [Official Trailer]
The official trailer for Big Red Camaro: Driving Fast & Taking
The October 2010 Mojave Mile marked the beginning of a partnership between
Team Big Red and longtime fan/filmmaker Josh Oliver to create the ultimate
Big Red Camaro
documentary film. Filming at events throughout 2011 yielded over 160 hours
of interviews, insider access, documentary footage, and some of the most
incredible shots of Big Red at its finest. Each event proved to be unique
as the filmmakers employed tools and tactics typically reserved for big
budget action movies, like the Cineflex camera system on an A Star
helicopter, massive 1000mm lenses on the ground, over 20 "BR" on-board
camera angles, and an airplane flying at 160+ mph to get the viewer never
before seen, up-close and in-tight action shots of Big Red at devastating
top speeds. Some 15 months have passed since then, and in 2011 Big Red
competed in 5 of the biggest events the "Weekend Warrior" motor sports
world has to offer: Mojave Mile, The Texas Mile (Goliad), The Spectre
Challenge (aka Hwy 341 Virginia City), Vintage Auto's "Big Bore Bash" at
Willow Springs Raceway, and of course, the Grand Daddy of them all... where
the Big Red legend began... September, in Ely, NV for the 24th running of
The Silver State Classic Challenge.
After many months and a lot of hard work, we are proud to bring you the
first trailer for the documentary. Stay tuned for more videos, clips, and
coming soon, the full-length historical documentary.

The Big Red Camaro was
originally built in 1987 by father and son team, Dan and RJ Gottlieb. The
car began as an all stock 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and became a very highly
modified muscle machine revered and well-known for its stunning
performances in "flat out" open road racing. The original car was destroyed
in an accident in the La Carrera Road Race in 1988, as the stock chassis
was unable to handle the stresses of cornering the heavy car under the
conditions and massive power output. "Big Red" was then rebuilt by the
late, great race car builder Bill Osborne with the original stock '69 body
and a spaceframe tube chassis, as well as a 1,000 plus horse power engine
built by Larry Mollicone. This is the car that went on to win accolades and
trophies at both the La Carrera Classic and Silver State Classic Challenge
throughout the late 80's, catching the world's attention, scoring features
in numerous car magazines, and made a name for itself among muscle car and
race enthusiasts. Big Red was retired in 1996 to a car museum, and revived
for racing again in 2004. Big Red continues to live up to the title of "The
