This is a little snippet from a day out that we had last week at Walters Arena in Glynneath. We were asked to film some aerial footage of a testing day for a Belgian rally team.
They were out all day racing their MK1 and MK2 Escorts around a forest rally stage just outside of Merthyr.
It was certainly a challenge for us as these rally cars are extremely fast and certainly faster than even our most rapid drones. It was essential that we used a two operator setup. A pilot to control the drone and a camera operator tracking the cars. As you can see this method can capture some truly stunning footage.
The dust, even though it provided some incredible scenes, was relentless and we spent a few days after cleaning the equipment, vans and ourselves.
