Better Late, Than Never: ILB’s Wörthersee Film

There are two primary schools of thought when it comes to creating and publishing media online.

The first is that it’s best to be the first one to publish, regardless of the sacrifices that need to be made in order to get the story, photographs or video out there before anyone else. In today’s hyperactive society, there’s definitely a lot to be said for that approach.

The second is the one which I believe holds most respect amongst creators and artists alike. That is, taking every minute, hour and day required to create something to the maximum of one’s own abilities.

You can read more about the difficulties that Adam McPeake and the ILB Drivers Club team encountered on creating this film on their own site. From the airline losing their stabiliser and the subsequent effort of trying to get it back, along with the help and support of the community to keep the project alive, it was far from straight forward. The result, however, is still stunning.

At over 17 minutes long, it’s not really something to watch on your toilet break. Instead, bookmark the link or add it to your favourites and make the time to watch it on the biggest screen you can, so that it can be enjoyed properly. It features one of my all time favourite scenes and transitions from any car film, which is previewed in the featured image at the top of the page. It’s also a chance to see these cars in motion, where they are best appreciated, and a reminder that they are not just static objects.

It might have taken the best part of seven months, but it was seven months worth waiting for.

Now, it’s time to start planning for 2019’s pilgrimage to Austria…

I think most of the people on here read these articles at the toilet. That's why the internet was created.


Haha-omg! As I thought to myself, "OK maybe i'll toss it up on the big-screen"; I scroll down and see this...too true.


Well, if you insist, the least you can do is get a pocket projector (not a euphemism) and watch it on the back of the bog door.


Incredible stuff. Just spent the better part of an hour going over some of their other videos, too.


An another great movie about car passion to watch:


Remind son the WagenWorks films from a few years ago. Top notch.


That 308 is just GORGEOUS.


That E24 tho... Btw it seems at 2:55 they used the sound effect of a Steyr Tactical machine pistol from the original Counter-Strike... Just find that interesting.


That E9 the most beautiful BMW of all time. Totally reminds me of a '62 Bel Air bubble top.


I liked it though my only criticism is that the Ferrari part just seemed a little off, I can't quite put my finger on it. At first I thought it was that the footage was a little sped up but on closer inspection that's not it. I think it's the disparity between what I'm hearing and what I'm seeing. Car looked to be being thrashed but the sound of the car isn't the main focus where I feel it should be - it's a Ferrari, the music is a touch over powering and there's a bit where we see the keys and hear a gear change but can see there isn't a gear being changed as the hand would pass in front of the camera. Other than that it's great, much respect to the guys at ILB.


I'm no cinematographer so my opinion is just that, no offence intended.


Came here for the 308, am *VERY* pleased. I don't think I've ever seen a car on stretched tires that sticks so well to a mountain road, particularly when changing direction in a way that could upset the chassis. It looks composed enough to attack a road course.
