PDecember 28, 2012
Now for a new addition to the Speedhunters Awards – Video of the Year. With the vast amount of high quality automotive films being released these days, we only saw fitting to include a category for you guys to pick the video of the year. You can think of it as the Speedhunters version of the Oscars.
Here are the nominees -

Vaughn Gittin Jr. 2nd Shift Drift
Released by Ford Racing, this film features Vaughn Gittin Jr. doing some rather crazy things with his drift car at the Mustang factory.

Simple and to the point, an on-board view from the Speedhunters WRT Audi as it tackles the Green Hell.
Racing In The Street : Group C Porsche 962
One of many great films this year from Luke Huxham done as a collabo with Motorhead Magazine. It’s a street driven Porsche 962 and that’s all you really need to know.
O’snap – Gatebil: The Game Changer
I doubt there’s any film that can fully sum up the insanity of Gatebil, but Daniel Hovdahl’s video does a pretty solid job.

Here we have film maker Stephen Brooks doing a fine job of investigating the Cal Look VW movement and its history.

This film shows driver Leh Keen’s perspective of the Rolex 24. Not just behind the wheel, but everything that comes with it.

Any of the films from Josh Clason’s Depth of Speed series is worthy of being on this list. This one profiles one fellow and his love of Datsuns.

Stephane Benini’s very unusual, and very touching take on Audi’s WEC season.
From Birth to Monaco
A brilliant piece by the BBC F1 showing the first-person journey from birth to F1 stardom.
