See it rate it!

Rams

NB
Be very careful if you want to choose the last option on the poll

1, It takes countless hours to complete a Top Gear Style video.
2, Have the balls to link us to your own efforts if indeed you have any, then allow me to judge (the video and not your balls!)
3, Bear in Mind I'm posting something of value to the site, not just another mindless thread about tire tread patterns.
4,I welcome constructive feedback from people who know how to edit video.
5, The video upload process takes a heavy chunk of quality from the video and shots that may look blurred or out of focus/ pixaleted, are purely down to re-sizing to upload sites.

Thanks for the majority of great comments.
It's worth the time then

All the best,

About 7mins too long but R56 for me.

Lies need defending all the time. The truth defends itself.

What was the result when you switched drivers and did the run again?

The driver of the R56 Works is the creator of GTSPIRIT - Gumball 3000, Bullrun, Cannonball & MORE and has had his share of runs (including Gumball). I estimate his driving skills are higher than mine. We repeated it with the same result but not switching drivers. 14 juli we will drive together on the Ring.

Great vid.
What he said

Video is quality Rams, some very innovative camera angles (especially the exhaust tips).

Great work

not a bad effort Rams. what did you use to edit the footage? I am not too keen on the picture in picture at the beggining.

i have to agreee - the exhaust shot is very nice, but slightly long.

over all a really nice, well put together piece mate!

Final Cut Express on the Mac, it's the first time in using FCE, so i'm just getting to grips with all the various tricks that can be done.
I had guidance with the PIP from Apple Training, I was a little undecided with that bit myself. But Alas it made the final cut and I stand by it!
