Johnny Schaer, better known as Johnny FPV, filmed the scene using a custom-built racing drone with a GoPro Hero7 Black attached and recording in 4K. The resulting views are nothing short of spectacular, with smoke-filled close-up shots of Field's Corvette in motion as it sways back and forth across the track that would be impossible to capture any other way. Seriously, watch the video and remember that this is real-life footage, not something generated by a computer.
We've seen Johnny's skills put to good use in the past. There's plenty of sweet first-person footage on his YouTube channel, a lot of it focusing on automotive pursuits. But there are also videos featuring all manner of action sports and wildlife. It's breathtaking stuff, and it leaves us with the feeling that this kind of footage could breathe new life into the motorsports realm.
