This looks like a good follow up event to my Pikes Peak career. Beautiful women, fast cars, great paint jobs, leaving the hotel around lunch. I think the organizers have something figured out! GT

About the film:

Well, the idea to film this year’s rally was totally spontaneous. I got a call from a friend at 11pm the day before and today at 9am sharp I was in Covent Garden, having survived the notorious rush-hour in London 🙂

I haven’t planned anything, wanted to take just couple of nice stills, see some celebrities, have my coffee and go home. Instead, I ended up filming with single 50mm prime lens & no tripod. I got so involved in the process that realized it was 2pm already 🙂 In the end I had 109 video clips on my camera. 6 hours later, I had this clip uploaded.

Some info:
