Win A DVD Of The New Film “Documentary Carrera Panamericana (1950-54)” – And A Poster

by Mike –

My Car Quest is holding another contest this time co-sponsored by Stephen Mitchell, the writer, director and co-producer of the new documentary on the famous Mexican road race.

Below Stephen Mitchell explains why he made this film:

“I first became aware of the Carrera Panamericana long before I knew what it was or its significance in the history of Mexico and auto racing. What attracted my attention were photographs of the festive paint schemes unique to the cars participating in the Carrera which made them interesting and immediately identifiable as “Carrera” racers. When Ron Kellogg of the Kellogg Auto Archives approached me asking if I could make a documentary of his archival Carrera footage and photos, I immediately said yes and began my own study of the race and its legendary participants, one of whom I was privileged to interview for the documentary–John Fitch.

For me, the Carrera Panamericana is the most dangerous and romantic of road races. Ernest Hemingway would have loved it!”


Oh yes the early 1950s when men were men and cars were a lot more dangerous.

  1. Let me add that the poster will be signed. Good luck!

  2. This looks like a great doc. and one that I look forward to checking out — regardless if I win or not — so I thank-you for putting me on to it. And by the way, another person other than Hemingway who I think would have loved this would have been Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, who probably would have titled it, “Fear and Loathing at the Carrera Panamericana”. Cheers!
