    Probably ought to go to bed, but playing and came up with this which I thought was a cool effect. I like the 'Londonness' of it with the bus and big ben.

    I’m going to need to find a way of editing this video a bit. At one point in the tunnel you can quite clearly see me and the speedo showing ~8_mph

    I’ve got another video from the first time through the tunnel, I’ll send it over, but it’s not as good because my wife was holding the camera above the screen, so there is almost as much wind noise as engine noise

    Well, there's a certain person caught on video who went through a full red light and also managed to nearly hit the back of a 328.

    Answers on a postcard please.

    You as well?????

    It would be unethical of me to divulge the persons name. However, I can give you the first and last letters of his name. Might take some time to figure out though.

    Why don’t you guys write a small piece about Sunday and send it with some photos to EVO and see if they’ll publish it
    You might be able to brag us a load of free subscriptions

    Don't know about Dem, but my writing is crap.

    We might invite a motoring journo to the next one though.

    Any ideas who?

    I did my English 'O'-level when I was 14, so yeah I can write!

    Not a bad idea, but before we 'brag' about it to a magazine, I'd want to make sure that all those invovled would support such a thing. Obviously we wouldn't mention any names / car registrations etc. etc. However, to be honest, I don't remember anything happening that was against the law.

    What red light?

    Here's some quotes from people who did'nt like the video.

    We're going to use them as quotes for next years run.

    :D :D :D :D


    FROM PISTONHEADS

    "I'm still trying to uncurl my toes. That has to be the saddest video ever compiled. Glad to get out of my 360 for that very reason. To call that lot poseurs would be a compliment. Hideous."

    911 Owner

    ---------------------------

    "keepin the Ferrari image alive eh, how sad"

    Maserati & Boxster owner

    ---------------------------

    "Do they all have dodgy tickovers or something? I assume they stall if just left to idle..."

    911 owner

    ---------------------------

    "sorry but you do all look like a bunch of Normans!!!"

    911 owner (I think)

    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    ------------------------------------------------------------


    FROM FCHAT


    "I liked it but I think all that revving was a bit excessive."

    Dino owner (USA)

    ----------------------

    "The revving was abit stupid, its not to my liking, but the run looked o.k if it wasnt for all the red lights."

    V12 Ferrari (I think) (USA)

    -----------------------

    "sorry, as much as I love ferraris, I thought these videos were way too over the top. Who would just rev and rev and rev their ferraris for all that time and just stand in traffic? THat was a bit corny in my eyes. I did enjoy that guy holding his ears though... Otherwise it was a waste of video in my eyes."

    He's looking for a 355 (USA)

    -----------------------

    "Well that was a waste of bandwidth."

    328 GTS owner (USA)

    You know even though the run may have not been for me. It realy p155es me of when ya put time and effort into posting videos/pics/links and sound files just to make this forum more interesting, and so every one can see whats happening in the ferrari world being good or bad. Then they start to slag you of, WHAT!!!:mad: Then they never ever post any vids,pics,links or bloody sound files them selfs, only reading and looking to slag of others that post:( you know if you dont like what ya see thats fair enough but dont start slagging people of becourse be for you know it, no one will be posting any thing other than words, just move on to the next thread. If any one was to post a video of a ferrari burrning out in the middle of say london, many will realy slate it on the forums, then they will use what they have seen as a talking point down the pub;) Kind of reminds me of the neighbour who never looks at ya ferrari while ya driving past and when he does look he is snearing, but then at work he is telling every one who will listen that his bessy mate who lives in the same street has a ferrari:D
    I think this is a great forum not only becourse of the written word but becourse of the videos and pictures that are posted. Wouldnt we all be sorry if the video and picture posters said **** it?
    MB: I saw it and liked it.
