Drones are one of the hottest tools for action photographers these days and they are only getting better, as are the people who fly them. Most drones you see in automotive fields are used for providing a higher perspective. But as we learned from this previous drone-captured video, they are much faster these days and can actually track a Corvette from the air as it tears around a race circuit.
But this new video featuring the use of a drone raises the stakes even higher.
The video opens with a drone flying through a wooded ravine before coming across Formula Drift’s Matt Fields and his 1,060-hp Corvette drift car. The Corvette does a burnout and then the chase is on!
As the Corvette races up the mountain, the drone is able to capture the action from all sides and occasionally gets dangerously too close to the action. Interspersed with the drone footage is in-car video showing Fields furiously working the steering wheel and brake bar. There’s even a quick intermission where a crew does a rear tire change and an incredible shot of the rear end grazing a guardrail.
The sound of the Corvette is amazing and if tire-shredding is your thing, this video will be right up your alley.
The video is part of a series called Super Vision and was posted on youtube by “HeatWaveVisual” so check out below:
Bending the realm of what’s possible with Matt Field as he takes it back to the mountain that started it all. Watch as he drops the hammer and nails banger after banger in his hi-revving 1060HP Chevrolet Corvette, the most aggressive drift car ever built.
Super Vision is a series of highly visual shorts highlighting individual Hi-VIS team members and vehicles from an all-new perspective.
