Knockhill Racing Experience

We got to take on the formula race car experience at Knockhill Racing Circuit

September 17, 2019

Knockhill is Scotland’s National Centre for Motorsport and is located just outside Dunfermline in Fife. It was set up by a local sheep farmer who was keen to use his land to create something more exciting.

Our brief was to create an energetic video to promote their Formula Race Car Driving Experience. Drone filming allowed us to capture some dynamic shots of the car speeding around the track and we managed to get a different position for each lap. We even strapped a camera to the back of a speedy suv for some tracking shots too - using the gimbal allowed us to keep steady on those twisty bends. The young driver of the car was a pro and he definitely knew his way around the track which made for a really smooth filming experience for us. 

For once we lucked out with the weather and had a gloriously sunny day in February which is a true rarity in Scotland! This made the shoot so much easier and the conditions better for the driver. This allowed us to get more than enough footage to showcase the car, the track and to really put the viewer in the driver’s seat to get a feel for the Formula Race Car Experience.  

We really enjoyed creating this promotional piece for Knockhill as it was different to anything we have done before. Filming at high speeds was a real learning experience for us but it was an enjoyable challenge and a fun place to visit. We were pleased with the end result and the content we created for the client.

The driving experience is a truly great day out and we would highly recommend it to anyone who has a need for speed.
