    Geez,

    The site looks great. Look at the attached brochure they offer. All the cities, all the media exposure???

    RARA has been at it for 50 years and then these guys come along and they have a site like this right at the start

    This F1 series will be International, South Africa, Korea, etc. I say Reno needs to get a date to have them here as part of our Air Races???

    Television coverage in over 100 countries, crap we can't even get it in our own??

    Anybody home at RARA???

    Just watched it and I agree 110% Dude...the video clip is full of copyrighted material from a variety of sources and one has to wonder if they even bothered to seek a license to use it or just pirated the footage.

    Not prejudging here but something doesn't seem right on the surface. Breitling footage, "Air Racers" footage, not to mention what seems to be a lot of footage and/or images taken of the net. And why mix all the footage of Unlimited, T-6, Sport, etc. Isn't this just F1?

    Hope they did their homework on that but from the sounds of it, it seems they took the easy way out.

    No, for a few reasons. The reality is the video was probably farmed out to someone else, who clearly doesn't give a damn about copyright, etc.. So your not going to win that battle, believe me I have tried with other content not related to air racing.

    This is the other reason I'm not going to say anything, I agree it is in the interest of promoting the sport. But..

    What bothers me is the time I put in to making that content, and then it is just assumed anybody can do whatever they want with it. I buy royalty free music, just to be on the up and up, for example. Buying cameras, shooting the content, capturing the data daily, buying editing software, editing itself, putting it on YouTube... It is a big job, as I'm sure plenty here have done also. I don't do it for me, I was there, I know what it is like. I do it for those that aren't able to get our point of view, and to also promote the sport. If somebody would have asked, I would have said yes, and given them better quality raw footage. Just rubs me the wrong way when I find it other places by accident. I'm sure everyone else who's content is included feels the same way.

    Even though I race in the sport class, I go from the pilot brief directly to the flight line to catch the F1 races every day. Sometimes shifty talks too much and we're late, but we get there.

    Well said, Dude. Well said. Posted many an image and video slideshows on the net and for the most part, folks are repsectful of the copyright. But every once in a while...

    And I'm shocked...shocked...to hear you say Shifty occassionally talks too long in the briefing!
