Epic multi-angle edit of Monster Tajima's record Pikes Peak run
Posted Aug 19th 2011 12:32PM
Nobuhiro Monster Tajima went to the 2011 Pikes Peak hill climb with a singular goal in mind: Run from start to finish in less than ten minutes. GoPro bet heavily on the Monster, and covered his car with a flock of logos and a gaggle of cameras. The GoPro team worked quickly to put together video of the record-breaking run, but we knew they had more up their sleeve. After all, they mounted the compact cameras all over Tajima's Suzuki SX4 Hill Climb Special, so we expected that footage to be put to good use.
Our patience has been rewarded because the edits are done and the video is ready.
GoPro put ten cameras inside the Suzuki. It also stuck cameras at seemingly every turn, inside a helicopter, on the end of the checkered flag and even on the slim end of a celebratory champagne bottle.
Monster Tajima may know how to tackle every angle of Pikes Peak, but it's GoPro that knows how to cover them. Click past the jump for the video.
