As some may know, I shot a LOT of video footage at this year's Porsche Clash at The Glen and the preceding Metro NY DE (June 11-15)... to the tune of 125ish 40-min tapes Well, I was bored this evening and cut together a bit of the in-car footage (camera rigging was done by Paul Wieland and Scott Woodward, both students at RIT). The 3 cameras were in Ronnie S's #5 Stock Class E 911 as he won his class (yet again, big surprise, I think Porsche Clash was like his win #49 and 50??).

Anyhow, Sasha's hosting the file & will only be able to have it up thru part way tomorrow (Thurs Feb. 5) so please download it while you can -- also, I ask you do a save-as rather than trying to stream it from his server. It's fairly sizable but it's rather high quality and almost 20 mins, so I suppose that's to be expected.

BTW this is just a tease/taste of what my thesis film will hold (it's going to be a 25-min documentary on the Clash) - I doubt I'll be including much/any of this footage in the actual film, however I'm hoping to produce a DVD as well w/ lots of extras such as this un-cut start-to-finish race, it'll be "available", I can't legally "sell" it because of a not-for-profit agreement I signed with the folks @ The Glen in order to secure permission to shoot it, however, I spent over $30k out of my own pocket toward this project (it's for the fulfillment of my Senior Project for my BFA) and so I'll be charging S/H to cover my cost of burning the dvd / packing materials, shipping, and probably a $5-10 charge on top of that to help recover some of my costs, not to line my pockets, but, frankly, if you like it enough and don't mind helping out a poor film-student so I can finish my 951 without further draining my / my parent's pockets.... well, lets just say some day I hope to be out there RACING in the Clash, not just filming it :P

Again, PLEASE do a save-as, don't stream it from the server.

The video is a QuickTime MPEG-4 (not sure if Windows Media supports mpeg-4 by default, or if you need other codecs, or, you could just get quicktime if you don't have it already).
