Onboard cameras for another busy F1 launch period

For the umpteenth year in a row, Extreme Facilities and its highly experienced team will be working with numerous F1 teams to capture the first shoots from onboard cameras as the new cars hit the track for the first time in public.  Filming onboard F1 cars presents a unique set of challenges, which Extreme has come up with innovative solution to solve.  One such solution is our high frequency vibration dampening mount.  Last year our teams spent several days at Silverstone and in Bahrain.  Here’s a look back at the launch of the McLaren MCL35M at Silverstone last year, where Extreme supplied and operated the onboard cameras.
