Join us on the third instalment in our new series: Behind The Scenes. Although we give frequent behind the scenes updates on our workshop, we wanted to show you some of the processes that go into our visuals.

With every competition car and for sale car, we arrange a full photo shoot to capture our beloved classics in the best possible light. Some of these shoots include models and locations and some include members of the Bridge Classic Car team hopping in and helping out at Bentwaters. No matter the setup, the aim is always the same. To tell a story and capture the car in the best way.

It was a particularly cold and seemingly dreary morning when we set out to photograph our Chevron B20. Not wanting to risk attempting to start it, and without a racing driver, we pushed the Chevron over to the runway that would act as our backdrop. We soon realised that the thunderous skies cast the perfect mood for such a powerful and foreboding car. Having survived an extreme crash, giving the driver a near-death experience, this beastly motor is not something to misjudge. Not only does this car hold a historic past, but it also holds an early Ford Cosworth engine, now thought to be extremely valuable. As the sun peeked behind the clouds, oranges and pinks tinted the charcoal skies.

We shot for a while, even giving it a go to sit behind the wheel which we soon discovered was just as hard as driving it. The sleek body leaves little room inside the car. Specially designed for the driver in mind and to be as aerodynamic as possible, the interior is simple. Soon the skies began to change and we switched sets to the Hush House, a building originally designed as a jet engine testing facility with an impressive exhaust tunnel.

Here we shot our video and a few creative light trail photos as seen below.

You can keep up to date with our behind the scenes videos on our Instagram page under ‘BTS’ highlights! Keep an eye on our Instagram and Facebook stories as well as we often put up sneak peaks on there too!
