Interesting to see how they made Le Mans and other Race movies since back than we had no digital cameras the size of a beer cap.:smile::smile:
If there is one thing any car enthusiast loves outside of driving or working on their car, it is watching cars on film. While we marvel at smooth tracking shots, driver’s eye views, and drone footage we must remember that it wasn’t always this easy. Capturing the action was once almost as dangerous, if not more so, than the racing itself.
Nowadays, with the advent of the high performance SUV, high speed filming is a piece of cake. Simply bolt a gyro-stabilized IMAX camera to the roof of a matte black Porsche Cayenne Turbo and you can practically film anything up to 150mph. Or if you’re on a budget a few strategically placed Go-Pros can do the trick.
