Here's a Car Spotter Giving Tips on Riding in Supercars

Have you ever wondered where all the videos showing the most unexpected sides of supercars come from? These pieces of footage are carefully captured by a new breed of enthusiasts, the car spotters. In this digital world, appreciation or fame, if you will, comes in the form of Youtube or Vimeo views, Facebook likes or retweets and one of the guys that managed to gather plenty of these has decided to share his experience with the world.

This spotter is called DtRockstar1 and his ten most popular videos range from about 350,000 to 1.7 million views on Youtube. He may not drive a supercar himself like one or two other spotters we know (Shmee150 is an example), but his clips definitely matter.

How do you get to ride in so many cars?

Apparently, this is what many of those who follow the spotter wanted to know, so he came out with a short guide for those who want to enter the world of car spotting. Basically, it’s all a set of common sense rules, but when it comes to cars, you can never have too much pieces of advice.

Many of the people who aim to chase supercars every day are obviously very young and they tend to put supercar drivers on a pedestal. This is obviously is wrong approach, just like going to a supercar owner and asking him or her for a ride directly is too much.

You should understand that, no matter the car, these are people and in order to get to meet them, you’ll have to attend car shows. Since they’re present, it’s obvious that the passion is the one which brings them together.

Basically, this is networking with an automotive twist

Like any form of networking, you should try to ask the owners questions about their cars and share your knowledge with them. In time, you’ll become buddies and instead of putting them under pressure by asking for a ride, you could just offer to make a clip about their car.

Of course, not everybody wants to be on the Internet, so you should talk to the owners about blurring their faces and/or the license plates on their cars.

What DtRockstar1 doesn’t mention here is that you should try to at least borrow or rent, if not buy, a piece of decent recording equipment before attempting to capture these cars. Oh and do make sure you develop your filming and especially your editing skills before heading out on the road with supercar owners. Most of these people are friendly and interested in showing their rides to the world, so you should have a good time together.

PS: yes, that’s a Lamborghini tractor in the image above.
