We filmed this quite some time ago, at least the portion where we came out, but I think it was last Oct.
Was quite fun but I wish they showed more footage of us putting the hammer down. We also did some
interviews at the end but thank god they did not show it, mine was pretty cheesey! Great vid, I have
been waiting for this long before they even advertised it. IIRC, Edmunds was also there with their own
film crew, wonder what happened to that footage.

Few crummy photos from that night. Aki's brakes were sparking like crazy...think he was on S-tune pads back then. Junk! And to think they didnt video tape my little drift session.

If you got some extra footage it would be nice to see.

No I do not have any extra footage. What I meant was that we were being filmed by Nat Geo, sorry for the confusion.
Weather was piss poor but this was the only time they could do this which sucked, would have nicer on a dry night.

I have both a High Quality (1.7GB) and an IPhone MPEG4 version (875MB) that I re-encoded recently. Can't find a suitable place to host it for download. There aren't enough people to make seeding this via BitTorrent sustainable for more than a couple days at a time.


Could post it to Youtube and make it downloadable.

I'll do just that... Use keepvid.com to download the original afterwards.


Did you get it posted on YouTube? All I can find is a poor quality version in 5 parts??? Let me know -as I would be willing to pay you to ship the full HD version burned on a DVD.

Thanks,
