AwesomeFest... Whoa, yeah. I don't know where to begin!

We Scandinavians are spoilt creatures, we have multiple Gatebil events during the year, and Gatebil has been the event to be at for many years now. On this side of the planet. Not anymore, now AwesomeFest is in the mix and a true contender. Sure, this was the first babystep the Driftworks crew have made at arranging this sort of big-scale event. I can safely say they did a fantastic job! I am definitely counting this as one of the must-go-to events for 2012!

So here's the video of my first ever weekend at Mallory Park, for the first ever AwesomeFest. Although you've probably already watched it before you read this. Hope you liked it!

Thanks a lot to Floyd Parsons for additional footage and Al Clark for being an amazing chase-car driver!

Camera: Canon 7D + Contour GPS'

Songs: What's Golden - Jurassic 5, Cassius - The Sound Of Violence (Tha Trickaz Remix) , Worst Comes To Worst - Dilated Peoples

  • awesome video, what camera did you use?
  • Daniel Hovdahl plus 6 days ago
    Thanks man. Canon 7D and a couple of Contours for a few clips.
  • Thanks! Interesting camera, I've never heard of the countour, is it better than the go pro?
  • Daniel Hovdahl plus 5 days ago
    No worries. I haven't really had the chance to compare the two proeprly, but the new Contour+ camera has amazing quality. This is just the GPS version

    Epic dude. The shots following the drift cars on the track are sick.. how did you get them? Did you mount the 7D on a chase car?
  • Daniel Hovdahl plus 5 days ago
    Thanks man! Yup, 7D with a 30mm Sigma on the hood of an E46 M3 going stupid speeds.
  • Benjamin Dowie 4 days ago
    Sick. 30mm in about the perfect lens size for those shots I reckon. Looks killer, pro as. It was so stable too. Nice work!
  • Daniel Hovdahl plus 4 days ago
    30mm is money for those shots. You can get real close and the wide shots. Al was a good driver, smoothest and the fastest ridealong I've ever been in!
