Default A video I did for the TopSpeed GC8 time attack car.

Since we all love the beauty of lightweight subie AWD goodness, I figured I would make a local thread....

A week ago, I sweet talked Doug (owner of TopSpeed in atlanta ga), into letting me tag along at a Redline Time Attack event in Nashville. I've been looking into getting out of the commercial product advertising world and getting into something more fun. So Doug and his team (Tray and Luke) were cool enough to let me stick a camera in their collective faces over the extended weekend and while I thought I was just going to be shooting some neet car footage for my reel....I ended up documenting a record setting run for a full body race car at the Nashville SuperSpeedway.

Basically no other non tube-framed race car has ever clocked off a time as fast as what TopSpeed was able to pull.
Ah the beauty of the power to weight ratios...

Anyways, here is the video. My first time really shooting a road race so there was a big learning curve. I think I am going to VIR in a few weeks to do a second event. Now that I know what I need to shoot, it should come out much better.

So here is the video, let me know what you think.

oh btw, I have a sweet GF8 chassis sitting in my friends garage thats forsale if anyone wants to build one after watching the video

Someone from TopSpeed posted the link in the Motorsports forum too. I don't know if they gave you credit for the video though

Oh its alright, I don't need the credit. I just like making videos.

With that said, if anyone local is going to do any competitions and doesn't mind covering my costs to get to the event etc, I would be happy to offer my services.

As an enthusiast, I know that we never really get to see ourselves enjoying our cars. Since I am always behind the camera, I always cherish when someone gets some pictures of my car in action. Thanks for the comments guys! If there are parts you don't like, critique away. Its the only way I can get better!

Oh yeah, you can see in the video how much air the car gets. I would say a good foot or two. Maybe more. Pretty much all the cars in Street mod or unlimited were getting mad amounts of air. CF splitters were scrapping everywhere!!!

AERO AERO AERO is the name of the game. While having 500hp and a light chasis is nice, its really incrediable what a lil aero work will do to the dynamics of a car taking turns at 150+mph.

Some incar video I am not aloud to post would blow you away. The difference in G forces, handling, brakeing with proper splitters, scoops and cutaways. It really changes the car as a whole.

I really wish I could build a TA car. Its really a lot of fun and im just watching!
The things TopSpeed has been willing to teach me about car setup is worth its weight in gold. There are a lot of tricks that go into building a proper race car, besides bolting on a lot of go fast bits.

Thanks, its only my second time going out to one of these events but I think I am starting to get the concept of what I need to shoot/when to have the camera running. I would love to have another camera man on the scene; so I can have one guy focusing on the car, the other focusing on the action around the car.

But feel free to critique if you don't like something. I am always open to suggestions/opinions!
