Click above to watch the video after the jump

We love racing. There are tons of different variations of fast vehicles in motion, and all provide a vast array of stimulation to our eyes and ears. Formula One, touring car, WRC, ALMS, bikes... all compelling in their own way and all are pretty damned fast. But as we've come to realize over the years, that which is fast also tends to look pretty cool when slowed to a crawl.

We've come to enjoy YouTube maven Mattzel for his slow-motion manipulation of all manners of racing footage, and we're happy to say that the high-resolution mix master has come strong with another compilation. This time there is more F1, more rally, more bikes, more crashes and more slow. Hit the jump to watch the video. We're thinking it's well worth three minutes of your time.

      Those shots of the motorcycles was like watching a ballet. Motor sports really is beautiful when it's slowed down a whole lot. Well.. I guess to us it is..

      ...and at the very end you expect to see "Gran Turismo 5: The Ultimate Driving Simulator".

      but it's not, in fact it's better than any of the game intros to the GT series and the music makes you want to cry with joy. :D

        i just expect it to suddenly snap to super fast drivebys and loud rock music (or techno)
        • 5 Years Ago
        The GT1 intro was epic, IMO...

      got to love slow mo!

      Personally I would've like a few more jumps from rally cars :)

      I'm not the biggest bikes fan but I make sure I see the TT, man those guys have some balls.

      Loved this music when Top Gear used it with the Lancia Delta Integrale and it's no different here.

      Nice video !

      Everything should be watched in slow motion...it lets you pickup on the little things.

      I like the clip from Nitro Circus with Pastrana and Block doing simultaneous jumps. The rest of that episode is NUTS. At one point, they had 3 or 4 monster trucks, a dozen or so dirtbikes, 2 or 3 Baja trucks, and Ken's gymkhana car all airborne, going over/under/around each other... at the SAME TIME.

      That video was pretty boring. Needs more slo-mo crashes.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Very nice. I have the first video in my favorites. This one is even better. I don't know what it is about going fast and the roar of the engine, the smell of gas and burnt rubber....it's beautiful

      Btw, on the topic of crashes, I have just seen the infamous crash of Tom Pryce....Some gruesome stuff

      Ooooo....Why did that end??? That was the so fan-flipin-tastic!!!
      Awesome!

      And Top Gear was included in it as well!!!! Hahahaha. Best 3:14mins ever!!

      Does anyone know the soundtrack info?
        • 5 Years Ago
        Blood Diamond soundtrack IIRC.

      Looks awesome, but was slightly disappointed that it wasn't true slo-motion video, just slowed down video.
