I’ve seen some really cool slot car layouts in my life, but this one definitely takes the win. Whoever built it has walking people, smoking car tires and even dancing umbrella girls. It must have taken him years to paint and build everything, and I can’t imagine how much money he’s sunk into the project.
Yes, I know this really isn’t a slot car track, but that only adds to the coolness of the video. Joe Ayala filmed this round of the Formula Drift series in Sonoma, CA using a tilt shift lens. That wasn’t his original plan, but somehow his press credentials got voided; unable to shoot the event up close and personal, Ayala rented a tilt shift lens and filmed the video in this format. I love tilt shift video, and I’ve got to say this is about the best I’ve seen. Mad props to Ayala, and thanks for being so damn creative.
