Filming at Thruxton race track
On Saturday 11th and Sunday the 12th June, Bitpod was asked to film the progress of the Top Cats racing team. With three cars and six drivers, Top Cats is a serious team with a long history of competing in the Britcar championships. On arrival we were issued with press passes which enabled us access to most track-side and pit lane areas.
Sunday started wet and progressively got wetter. This created many filming challenges because even though the camera has a waterproof jacket, driving rain was causing the lens to get rather wet. After a thorough drenching we eventually retired to the stands followed by the pit garage. Unfortunately one of the cars we were following left the track due to standing water and suffered some substantial damage. Luckily the driver was unhurt and was even happy to be interviewed to explain what happened.
Our mission is to create a DVD for the team and Britcar showing the events of the weekend. Overall a fantastic weekend although the weather could have been better!
