In just three weeks, three race cars were built. Here’s the timelapse.
Doing time-lapses over extended periods of time can be challenging. One solution I’ve found is through old android phones using the ipwebcam app.
If the phone has connectivity you can upload images as they are taken to a dropbox.
It’s worthwhile to get the paid version.
We had the opportunity to shoot the maiden race of the freshly configured 4×4 Trophy Truck of Robby Gordon.
While an early driveshaft yolk setback took them out of contention for the day, the Unicorn made it to the finish without any other challenges.
On-board the Unicorn
Qualifying is about to go down for the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno off-road race. Gordon is breaking out the unicorn with its very own mask.
If you watch to the end you’ll see the old Robby’s Uprising logo. I’m pretty sure we were doing social media before social media. Thanks, ning.
Red Bull’s slogan was “Gives you wings“.
This was their slogan for over 20 years until one consumer, Benjamin Careathers, decided to sue the company for ‘false advertising’, arguing that after 10 years drinking Red Bull he neither had wings nor any enhanced athletic or intellectual performance.
Robby Gordon begs to differ.
I shot this photo out a Glamis with an Olympus C2100UZ, which was my second digital camera ever. I remember wanting to decal up the bottom of the truck before this but never got around to it. Wish we had.
Interestingly at the time, Robby had an personal services agreement with Red Bull (he wore their helmet in NASCAR), and they we’re more concerned about Robby showing up at Glamis in full Red Bull color than winning the Baja 1000.
