Video: Valencia street track TV footage

Posted on

| Written by

Here are two more videos of the Circuito Urbano Valencia, which will host its first F1 race in three weeks’ time. I posted some onboard video from the Spanish street track earlier this week which started us wondering how good the circuit would look on TV. This footage should give us a good impression:

As expected the wide views of the track and harbour look great and the short blast across the bridge looks really good on television.

Other parts all look fairly similar but hopefully when more work has been done on the circuit there’ll be a splash more colour.

  1. IMHO
    Most of the high shots looked good, as well as the wide views. But the choice of some of the camera locations looks bad, and there was far too much in close up – so lots of panning was required. They need to zoom out a little or use wide angle lens so we can get more of a perspective of the track.
    At one point they seem to be filming through prison bars !
    The second film looked better, but not by much.
    I guess the TV production was an afterthought of circuit design.

  2. Where are the people? Correct me if I am wrong but not one on-track camera showed the stands or people in the background.

  3. My concern is that I don’t see any cranes around the track, so does this mean we can expect lots of safety cars to be deployed throughout the race when incidents occur, thus potentially ruining the race.

    Well, it does look better on TV! Let’s wait to see how the GP goes.

  5. Hi!

    I’m a Formula 1 fan and I love your website.

    I’ve found something great that probably interest you. It’s the first real video of a qualifiyng lap at the Valencia Street Circuit, the urban circuit where the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Europe will be held in August, 22nd to 24th.

    Here you have the link:

  6. I really like the layout of your blog. I took a peek at the source code, hope you do not mind, to discover what theme you are using. Is it it a cost free theme or do I have to pay for it?

  7. Thanks for your post. I have often observed that the majority of people are eager to lose weight since they wish to show up slim plus attractive. Having said that, they do not always realize that there are more benefits for losing weight in addition. Doctors assert that fat people are afflicted by a variety of illnesses that can be instantly attributed to their excess weight. The great thing is that people who definitely are overweight along with suffering from a variety of diseases are able to reduce the severity of their illnesses by losing weight. It’s possible to see a constant but noted improvement with health if even a small amount of losing weight is accomplished.
