I went to pick up mail today and it’s like Christmas all over again! My copy of the flatovercrest.com 2007 rally video magazine had arrived. Of course as soon as I got home from shooting photos of the Taurus X, I had to plant myself in front of the new lcd tv to get my fill. Oh my!
Way back in the early Eighties, there was a video put together about the glory days of Audi and the Group B. That video pretty much set the standard for rally video and has withstood the test of time, even today it is plastered all over the gootoobz. Nothing else has really come close to capturing the passion and excitement that is performance rally. Until now. Canadian film maker Warwick Patterson has produced, filmed and edited what may be the best rally video ever created!
The dvd holds the video magazine, which is a 30 minute movie and a bunch of extras, including in car footage and raw footage from the 2006 WRC Mexico. The feature is so stunning that an old school TV would be a waste. With a modern hd tv, the filming has an almost surreal quality that allows the cars to jump off the screen, while the dust is still hanging in the air. The well chosen sound track keeps things pumping as we travel from New Zealand to Mexico, then back up to Ontario and Quebec. The in car footage from Sylvain Erickson’s car in the snow is downright frightening.
If you have even the faintest interest in performance rally then you absolutely MUST get yourself a copy of the video!
A new standard has been set!
