Sam Russell is a Brooklyn based filmmaker and cinematographer known for his work on By Blood (2015), Papertown (2017) and Umbilical (2007).
Team Obsolete is the world’s first and foremost Vintage Road Race Team and the originator of the first AMA sanctioned Vintage Road Races. During over twenty years of competition, Team Obsolete has entered more than fifteen hundred races worldwide, garnered twenty-two Daytona wins, and is the first American Team to ever win the Isle of Man TT (1984).
Tuner/collector Rob Iannucci, head of Team Obsolete, had the unprecedented idea to assemble the very best grand prix 350’s from the classic period in a head-to-head test. Having these machines on the track together was really something, highlighting the differences not only in power, weight and handling but also in design philosophy and how that evolved over time. These motorcycles “bookend” the classic period. Having them together for the first time was quite special. Filmed over the course of a single day at Thompson Motorsports Park using on-board, handheld, drone and chase vehicle cameras this video really captures the moment and the philosophy of Team Obsolete. Enjoy!
