Bilstein are one of the world’s leading manufacturers of motorsport suspension and have a history spanning over 50 years, working with some of the largest racing teams across many disciplines.
We were approached to create a promotional video for their aftermarket division, documenting the journey of a custom kit from production line to race track for Oxford-based Mini racing team, OX4 Racing.
With a tight 3-day shoot in Oxford, Bruntingthorpe and Leicester, there were a lot of moving parts to capture. From car prep at the team factory, racing at Bruntingthorpe proving grounds, and the manufacturing process at Leicester HQ; we needed to capture the speed and intensity of racing, with the precision and painstaking accuracy of the manufacturing process.
The result is a short 2-minute video which centres around the car and the high performance technology that literally keeps it on the road.
The video was very well received by car lovers and motor enthusiasts all over the world. Our photography was also used in the popular magazine, Modern Mini, in an article featuring the Oxford OX4 racing team.
