The Evolution of Motorsport
Motorsport, motor sports or motor racing is a worldwide-accepted term used to cover the collection of organized sports competitions that primarily involve the usage of motorized vehicles, sometimes including bikes and other recreational vehicles. The most common types of motorsport are auto-cycling, car racing, karting, motor biking, rugby and sailing. Motor sport competitions are held on a regular basis all over the world, with an increasing popularity in many countries such as the United States and Brazil. Some of the most famous motorsport events are the endurance race, the time trial, the Formula 1 World Championship, the Le Mans Series, Tour de France, the V8 Supercar Series and the Rolex Series. These events have helped to raise the profile of motor sports, and have provided a forum for drivers, manufacturers, promoters and fans to come together and share information and experiences regarding the sport.
There are two types of motorsport: open-access and closed-access. Open-access motorsport refers to any event that is not restricted by race organisers and regulation bodies, whereas closed-access motorsport events are those that are regulated by governing bodies but with limited access to some of the events. Common examples of open-access motor sports are track days, which allow audience members, professional drivers and teams to come together and experience the thrill of participating in a particular motor sport event; and behind the scenes test days, which allow authorized drivers and teams to test and do tests on the various machinery. Other examples include endurance driving, drag races, road rallies and other high-risk racing activities.
Editing and producing high quality videos of racing has become much easier in recent years because of new technology that has made the production of video possible with minimal effort. Modern hard drives and camera technology have made it possible to create high quality videos from several different angles and take advantage of the motion picture technology to add special effects, fade in and fade out elements, as well as adding text and logos onto the screen. Video editing software available for PC and Mac now enables the production of a number of different videos and allows users to make changes to the video afterwards. In addition to using video editors to create and edit videos, you can also use text filters to enhance photos taken during motor racing events. Motor racing becomes more entertaining when the viewer can interact with the content and can create their own videos of their own, which helps bring the motor racing experience closer to the fans.
