So you are approved for official media at Drift Matsuri. Whats next?
There are a few things you need to know about media placements, air space and more.
This needs to be discussed directly with us first as we limit who can and can't put a drone into the air, as the airspace above Bruce McLaren Motorsport Park is a "controlled aviation zone" with the Glider club next door. If you have contacted us, you will then need to contact Aviation NZ to lodge your flight time. You may also contact the Taupo Glider Club for more information.
HOW DO I GET ONTO THE TRACK?
If the circuit is live with traffic flow please come and talk to the crew in the main pit tower to arrange a red flag on all points around the circuit, this will stop all traffic on the circuit and allow you to go to your position. Please note you will need to get to your point with urgency as you will be holding up the drivers track time.
Alternatively you may wait for a chequered flag where applicable.
Note: Only ACCEPTED media applicants may access the circuit.
WHERE CAN I / CAN'T I STAND?
Being out on the circuit with live sessions is a risk and we need to be sure you know where you are standing is safe. These main areas of risk are out the outside edges of the circuit where cars could go off and potentially hit you.
We suggest you don't bunch up with each other, there are so many vantage points to get a completely different perspective of the event from. Think outside the box!
I DON'T HAVE A MEDIA PASS, CAN I STILL TAKE PHOTOS?
Yes, you are more than welcome to take photos and film from the outside perimeter of the circuit or any viewing point.
I HAVE A MEDIA PASS, CAN I PUT LOGOS ON THE PHOTOS?
Yes, of course! all we ask is that you please keep the logo size and amount of logo's to a minimum. It will also make the finished package of your media look alot cleaner and not distract from the image itself.
DO I NEED A HI-VIS?
Yes, you will require your own hi-visability clothing and covered shoes to be official media.
This varies between events, but you must sign the official waiver.
