It’s easy to get nostalgic about how ‘racing was better in the old days’, but there’s something about the texture and grainy feel of the film that adds to the mystique.

So, step forward our hero, Nick Shirrell, who filmed a recent IndyCar race at Road America on his trusty Super 8 camera from 1968.

The footage above is definitely worth seven minutes of your time. Reminds us of the time we were sent pics of modern Formula One racing taken on a 104-year old camera.

Oh what’s that, you want to see what modern F1 looks like on a 104-year old camera too? Watch the vid above first, then head this way
