IMPA wrap up

Over the past few months, we’ve been happy to bring you our first series of videos from the 2008 IMPA Test Days. On the track, through the mud and even on the streets of the Pocono Mountains we had some fun exploring the limits of cars, trucks and sanity.

This series was put together by our resident Video Ninja, Scott Simmons who stepped outside of his usual role as film editor and into the role of shotgun shooter. As you’ve all had fun watching my skill at decapitating cones, you already know that Scott has nerves of steel joining me at 140 mph!

For our final episode, crank up the speakers, as this one is an auditory delight. Be sure to watch right to the end to see why my kids need therapy.

That about does it for content from the Poconos until next September. Keep watching though, as we may do the odd video review here and there over the coming months if I can figure out this damn video camera and send Scott something worth working with. Also, you never know what race we might meet up at somewhere in between Toronto and Nashville and you can be sure we’ll put something together then too.

    Gary, you’re assuming that they let you back next year :-)

    Seriously though, it was a great event, and you guys got some awesome footage.

    I might bring my camera along to the next one. If I’m lucky I might catch the famous twirling Viper Man in action, or even the Coneman in the killing zone! Full unedited raw coverage for the whole world to see!

    Of course, the footage would be up for sale…Me thinks that my drinks might just be on you next year :-)
