Jessica Nelson reports from ThunderHill Speedway…
Miniology staff Jessie Nelson takes to Thuderhill Raceway to interview some of the sponsoring participants of Stormin’ Normans Mini Thunder IV.
We interview Mark from Big-O Tires in Healdsburg, Lyle Beckwith from Vinyl Styles, Eric Diamond and a first time driver who came all the way down from Toronto, Canada for the event.
Throughout the little video we have b-roll pictures and snippets from our day at the track, and end with a parade lap at 4x speed to give you a feel of what driving this great venue is like!
Big thanks to everyone who attended and made this video possible. A cameo of Mini Mania’s classic cooper and new coupe on display (which I got to ride a hot lap in, woo!) and other Mini goodness. Sorry for the wind in the audio, I was using my Samsung Galaxy SII to do all the video and there was no windscreen
Listen in to this audio souvenir of our visit to MiniThunder IV, recorded live this past Saturday night at ThunderHill Speedway in Willows, Ca.
This show was an experiment in trying to do a live show from a remote location. We learned a lot about the technical side of audio production on the cheap. The mic levels were pretty low and the crowd was pretty loud, so the interviews are a challenge to hear clearly.
Have no fear, since recording this, we have acquired a nifty new audio mixer, so next time the production value will be much better.
So, enjoy this piece of audio as a remembrance of this great event. We will be back next year with a more kick ass show!
