R8GT Driver Event

In June I got to spend a nice long weekend in wine country shooting super high-end sports cars. The shoot was very quick and on a limited budget so we were running around with a couple 5d's and a fist full of GoPro's. the goal was to shoot the cars on the track and to get in-car driving footage of each of the 50+ drivers who, over 3 days, drove these cars around the track as part of an enhanced version of The Audi Sportscar Experience.

Backing me up on this one, I had Daniel Ortiz as a second camera op. (extra props for spotting the lizard!) and Jim Farber was our Editor. I did a little paint and color once the edit was locked.

I'm especially proud of the last shot in this piece, which consisted of taping a GoPro to the track and finding someone willing to drive over it at speed knowing there was about 3/4 of an inch of clearance. That'll get your hart pumping!
