“Of Cars and Cowboys”
The Story of Alberta’s Motorsports Heritage
Check out Rinaldi (Randy) Gulinao’s film project. He is planning a feature length documentary on the history of Motorsports in Alberta. Very cool!
I’ll be supporting it in a number of ways – hope many others will as well!
Alberta’s motorsports heritage goes back a hundred years – as old as the Stampede itself.
…and just like that annual celebration of our heritage, so too is our motorsports history full of mavericks, pioneers, and daredevils.
A story of passion and audacity, it is a story of cars and cowboys.
This is a proposal for a feature length documentary on the subject of motorsports history in Alberta and how it has always reflected this province’s identity.
Here is the introductory teaser video. Of Cars and Cowboys

McKlein’s famous rally calendar once again comes in its impressive 95 cm wide panoramic format and, in line with McKlein tradition, features the twenty-eight best pictures from the World Rally Championship.
On top of that, the world’s leading team of rally photographers have come up with something new. “McKlein Rally 2013 – The Wider View” compares the spectacular Fafe jump in Portugal in both 1984 and 2012, it offers you a glimpse into Volkswagen’s secret workshop, and shows Rally Mexico with a miniaturising effect.
For each month of the year, you can have a choice between two very different pictures which range from water splashes and powerslides to atmospheric images underlining the variety of the WRC events and locations.
As a further bonus, in the accompanying text the McKlein photographers give an insight into the camera settings that they used to produce these stunning images.
