The final Speedhunting week of 2015 is upon us, but before we hit you with some fresh content and a few retrospectives on the year that was, it’s time to take a quick look at some of the videos we’ve been watching this week…
The chances of you not having seen Motorhead magazine’s new Hakone Hill Climb II clip are probably pretty slim, but there’s no way this new video – a prologue to Motorhead‘s forthcoming new issue with DVD release – wasn’t going to make it onto our list this week. The challenging roads of the Hakone Turnpike, plus some amazing cars and Luke Huxham on director duty has resulted in something too cool to watch just once.
Next up, it’s a behind-the-scenes look at Red Bull’s Mad Mike Conquers Highlands clip. The finished edit was epic to say the least, but behind Mike’s high speed sideways driving antics was a Kiwi production crew spanning camera operators, pilots, chase car drivers, mechanics and more, and in On The Track With RADBUL you get a real idea of how it all came together at Highlands Motorsport Park in New Zealand’s South Island.
If famous American race car driver Skip Barber, an iconic Ferrari 275 GTB and the film story-telling skills of Petrolicious sounds like a match made in automotive heaven, you’re going to love Indelible Imprint. We did.
Lasty this week, we have another short film shot at the Hakone Turnpike during the Motorhead event, this time from Toyo Tires. Masato Kawabata in his Toyo Tires/Trust Racing Nissan GT-R and Ken Gushi in his Toyo Tires/Trust Racing Toyota 86 are the stars in this oversteer assault on the famed touge course, and it’s all good. Once you’ve finished watching this clip, make sure you check out Kawabata’s treacherous, late afternoon rain run from an in-car perspective.
