Story and photography by Duncan Bonar

I’m a product designer and photographer in Los Angeles, attending Art Center College of Design. Additionally, I’m obsessed with all things petrol and Porsche. Recently, I had the fantastic pleasure of camping at Laguna Seca to enjoy Rennsport Reunion.

If there was a Disneyland with a dash of crack for Porsche fiends, Rennsport Reunion was it. Rising from slumber to 356s descend the Corkscrew into turn 9 beats bacon, eggs, and espresso any day.

There is a specific sound that resonates from all things air-cooled. They have a particular zing and zah to hold their own. They sing a song that melts your heart and eardrums to carbon dust leaving a grin from cheek to cheek across your sun soaked face. Rennsport Reunion at Laguna Seca is to be remembered for the sake of remembering. Porsche, being an institution holding decades of racing prowess, success, and pedigree, believe its cars deserve to live in the way they were meant to live, on track and racing.

Rennsport Reunion is a living museum of racing triumphs. To experience a brand in all such glory was an event to be truly thankful for.

Very neat, I love seeing this. I take my film camera to the Historics at Laguna every year ([url=”https://www.flickr.com/search/?text=holy\%20week&user_id=33385346\%40N08&sort=date-posted-desc&view_all=1″]Flickr here[/url], yet another shameless plug).

The analogue film is not made anymore. I guess that’s some preety good use for what’s left.

Na, although not widely available at your local drug store, is still made produced by Kodak, Ilford and Fuji to name a few. I should film almost exclusively small, medium and large format. I too shot RRV in b/w film as well iwolfe.tumblr.com shameless plug 😉

As someone would shoots with film still, love it. I hate the ‘analogue’ moniker though.

Is there ‘digital’ film?

Derelict

No, there is not but analogue is redundant. It is an unneeded term to make it sound more antiquated than film actually is. I shoot, and can easily obtain, Ilford Delta and Kodak T Max. Fantastic stuff. I, like many, still shoot film along with digital.

Yeah, my questions was rhetorical, but thank you for the response.
Incidentally, I have many photos of some these same cars on this same track (well, the old layout) that I shot with “analogue/analog” film, or just “film” as we used to call it, from when I was maybe twelve years old. I need to dig those negatives up out of some shoe box in a closet.

It’s kind of like putting the “organic” before, say, “apple”. Isn’t it just an “apple”?
