DANNY THOMPSON – RACE FOR THE RECORD
In preparation for Speedweek, Danny Thompson spent a weekend at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah testing his land-speed race car.
His rich history and unique story made covering the project very special. Initially I was sent to just acquire B-roll for a documentary Mickey Thompson Tires hired us to put together.
I was able to convince the client to green light 4 trailers that Mickey Thompson could use for promotional purposes to help hype his record breaking land speed attempt during Speedweek – at Bonneville.
Very reminiscent to his fathers last attempt back in the 60’s, Speedweek 2014 was rained out.
Danny is going to attempt the record breaking run during the worlds event September 2014 at the Bonneville Salt Flats.
