Almost 1000 Japanese cars of every variety ignored the rain to participate in the Simply Japanese event at Beaulieu on Sunday July 29th 2018.
Our job, as usual, was to capture the event for Beaulieu to use for promotional marketing and archive purposes.
On the day all types and ranges of Japanese vehicles were on display including Honda, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Toyota. Many classics as well as customised and family friendly vehicles were there.
Many car clubs and groups were in attendance. Toyota had their rally team and their vehicles present.
The weather was a real challenge for us filming as we needed to protect the equipment (as well as ourselves) from getting wet! The windy conditions meant that umbrellas were not always stable as you can see in the video below.
The Brabazon Restaurant proved very popular. The catering staff worked very hard and opened early to provide welcoming hot coffee and tea plus freshly baked food.
Others took the traditional English approach to summer picnics!
We managed to get enough footage on the day and have enjoyed editing in in the studio – where it is dry!
