The Road To Monterey is an award-winning feature film about vintage racing that centers on Australian racing driver Ron Goodman and his highly-tuned Porsche 356 race cars. The full length film is available to watch for free on YouTube, and we’ve embedded it above.
In the film you see Ron racing in Australian NASCAR earlier in his career, it also showcases his work in Sydney as one of Australia’s premier Porsche specialists. Although Porsches are clearly Ron’s primary passion his team is also certified to work on cars from McLaren, Tesla, and a number of other high-end manufacturers.
As a former NASCAR racer Ron is passion about oval racing, in this film you see him get a once in a lifetime opportunity to drive one of his vintage Porsche 356s at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. I won’t go into too much detail here so as not to ruin the film, however it’s safe to say that everything didn’t go according to plan.
The film then moves on to Ron trying to get his car shipped to Monterey in time for the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion, one of the classic racing world’s most important events. The film includes brief appearances from Outlaw Porsche icon Rod Emory as well as 24 Hours of Le Mans legend Derek Bell, even Magnus Walker makes an appearance.
