Once upon a time, the Philippines was one of the most popular spots for motorsports across Asia. Those decades were dubbed as the golden age of Philippine motorsports.
But we bet a lot of you didn’t know that. Good thing the documentary entitled Racing with Legends is on Facebook—it’s been there for a while already, actually—and you can watch it for free.
The documentary retells the roots of Philippine motorsports from over half a century ago—from the first recorded organized motorsport event at the Sta. Ana Hippodrome to the 1st Philippine Grand Prix in Cebu in 1969, and all the other races that followed. These paved the way for racing legends like Dodjie Laurel, Louie Camus, Mandy Eduque, Dante Silverio, and Pocholo Ramirez to establish themselves in the racing scene both locally and abroad.
If you want to check it out, just head over to the Racing with Legends (The Movie) Facebook page and you’ll find the hour-long documentary split into several parts. Here is a sneak peek.
We know we could use a history lesson ourselves, and now’s actually a good time since we’ve all got some free hours these days. So, would you care for a short trip down memory lane?
