With more applications than we have spots, and over 30,000 hp worth of entrants lined up for the event, 2014 is set to be out of control! But before we start previewing the entrants, we thought we would take a look back at the history of the Motive DVD GT-R Challenge and Drag Battle.
Castrol Edge have returned as our partner for the 2014 GT-R Challenge and Drag Battle. Applications are now open and details are available on our website here:
The 2nd version of the Sony Action Cam, the HDR-AS30V, has had a big impact on the Action Cam/POV market. Sony quality and reliability in a package better priced than the other top-spec models, incl Go Pro Black, Drift Ghost and Contour +2. We have been marketing it as a equivalent to these cameras at up to $150 less! Hard to argue that one. But what if a new Sony Action Cam came along that was priced the same as the other leading cameras, but with MORE features and better image quality? Well, that is about to happen with the launch of the new Sony HDR-AS100V.
The HDR-AS100V isn’t going to replace the current model, but rather sit above it in a new two-model line up. This means the current HDR-AS30V will be a competitor to cameras more like the GoPro White and Silver in pricing, but out performing them in feature and quality. Even better news is a price drop, effective immediately! The 30V will now have it’s retail price dropped from $379 to $329. Motive DVD are able to offer it at a crazy $299, and that still includes the LCD kit valued at $79 and a free accessory! You can go here to check it out and buy:
Sony Action Cam recently became the official onboard camera of ADGP, and sponsor of our new upcoming TV show “ADGP Extra Action”. Furthering their involvement with drift, Sony and Motive DVD, a Sony Action Cam dealer, have chosen some drivers to be Sony Action Cam Ambassadors in 2014. With the launch of a new and improved Action Cam later this year, Sony and Motive DVD are excited about pushing further and harder into the motorsport market in Australia. The Ambassadors chosen so far are:
D1GP, Formula D, TIDC and FD Asia Champion, DAIGO SAITO and his Achilles Radial teammate ROBBIE NISHIDA
To go to the Summernats, or not go to the Summernats, that was the question over Christmas. I hadn’t been in 6 years and I needed to do 2 more flights to keep my Velocity Gold membership, so I thought “why not”, and booked a last minute trip to Canberra for the Summernats. I’ve got a lot of friends in Canberra, and knew a few more would be in town, so it was more of a social visit than anything else, but I couldn’t help but bring the camera and a few Sony Action Cams and capture just a little bit of Summernats action……
Motive DVD is proud to announce that we are now an official Sony Action Cam dealer. We have tried numerous on-board/POV cameras and accessories in the last 5-years, put them through hell, and have now settled on the camera that we want to retail to the public. Knowing this is the camera we use personally for all of our motorsport and event coverage gives you piece of mind that it is both high quality and reliable, and that we can offer advice and stand by the product. We also communicate with Sony Australia direct for feedback on the product.
You can look at the products below, or go straight to our online store here: CLICK HERE We will be increasing out range of products as time goes on, making sure we bring you the best products.
Sony Action Cam has now also become the official camera of the Just Car Insurance Australian Drifting GP. In the future, we will be brining you reviews, how-to and highlight videos using the Sony Action Cam. Stay tuned and visit our video page:
Sony Action Cam HDR-AS30V is Sony’s entry into the action camera/POV market. Revisions to the first version lead to this 2nd version, the HDR-AS30V. With a Exmor R CMOS Sensor and Carl Ziess lens, it has exceptionally image quality and great low light performance. It shoots in full HD with your choice of 60P, 50P, 30P and 25P, wide or medium angle and it has a true Super Slow Motion mode. Great battery life and class leading reliability combined with great value make this the perfect camera for all types of extreme sports, motorsports or for just every day. Please note, we strongly recommend the use go genuine Sony Micro SD cards to avoid corrupt files and reliability issues. We will not warrant a camera that is using a non Sony Micro SD Card.

Once again, we’re going to putting together a dedicated Yokohama World Time Attack Challenge DVD for 2013, but for this year we’re doing things a bit differently.
Firstly, rather than a special edition DVD sold online, we’re going to make Motive DVD #20 the dedicated issue, meaning it will be sold through newsagents, sent to subscribers and sold at stores and online, making for bigger distribution. We’ve got some more distribution news we can’t reveal yet, but this will be the most watched coverage of the event, ever! You will be able to pre-order the DVD at the event from our trade stand at a discounted price, meaning you will get the DVD before anyone else! The DVD is scheduled to be ready for mail out first week of December and in newsagents in time for Christmas.
Secondly, we won’t be racing this year. Why? So we can focus more time and energy into making this the best World Time Attack DVD we’ve ever done. We’re bringing 2 producers, 7 cameramen, over 15 on-boards cameras, a photographer plus some new filming toys. We are aiming to step it up in a big way, with the most in-depth coverage ever. On-boards in all the Pro Class cars and fastest Open and Clubsprint cars, interviews with all the top drivers, details of the best cars and behind the scenes in the pits. We also have exclusive access to some of the teams who we will be following all week leading up to, and during, the event. We will also have coverage of all the show and shine, the promo girls, trade stands, the Legends of the Turbo Era and the Flying 500.
This year we have a massive 6x12m trade stand right in the middle of traders alley. We will have our project cars JET200 and JET014 on display, as well as Motive DVD #19, and winner of the 2013 Drag Battle, on our stand to check out. We will also be releasing Motive DVD #19 at WTAC plus a range of new merchandise. Grab a bargain by buying our old c and back catalogue of DVDs too! We have a few other things we will be revealing at WTAC also, but best leave some thing as a surprise.
Once again, this year we will be allowing drivers, teams and sponsors to buy airtime in the DVD, giving them guaranteed coverage. This is great for teams to look after their sponsors or sponsors to look after their drivers. WTAC has so much going on, it is hard to grab the attention of medi. Packages start from as little as $250. A great way to stand out amongst everything going on at WTAC. For more information, download the form here:

The 2013 Castrol Edge GT-R Challenge and Drag Battle has been run and done. We would love to give you results, but they stay a secret until the DVD it out. What we will say, is that every record was broken, and it was the fiercest racing we’ve seen in the drag battle. This video and a couple of pics should give you a nice little taste
