Nurburgring 24 hr 2010

I thought I’d stick this video up here, because, well, it’s wonderful. I stumbled across it via Twitter and was so impressed that I wanted to shout about it.

It’s by Tim Hahne, I hadn’t seen any of his stuff before but I’m really impressed. His site is http://www.stereoscreen.de/

I think the video (captured on a new fangled HD video capable Canon DSLR) captures the atmosphere of the race to stunning effect. I watched the race over the net with Radio Le Mans providing commentary via thier website (my German isn’t as fluent as it once was). I thoroughly enjoyed the coverage, but it’s videos like the one below that offer a perspective that TV coverage can’t match. It’s job isn’t simply to report what is occurring on track. Instead it instils the experience of being there, camped out with a BBQ at Flugplatz, drinking tins of lager at 2am. Heaven to GT racing fans.

I’ve made a promise to myself to visit the race in 2011 and it’s this vid that’s really spurred me on. Enjoy.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
