Well ill tell you some of the reasons its like it is:
1, I was on the media stand. They saw me with camera and asked if I was 'Media' i replyed umm yes and invited me up to sign on, to which i 'forgot' to do (never asked before didnt know what it would involve), so I didnt want to leave just incase they didnt let me back on (they were turning other jo-bloggs away.)
2. Its very much a thing for people who like their cars. If your the target audiance you will definately know them and the drivers etc, and therefor it is alot more interesting to watch.
3 panning, I had a Velbon D700 which at the time was broken and offered no fricton or damping on its pan, this made it difficult to work with, I used an XL1s with standard lens which had trouble with keeping in focus even when used in manual as i zoomed in (not to mention trying to control the rate of zoom.) That is why i was there to see if how the 16x behaved really.
I have since purchased the 14x fugi fully manual lens, and shall be back to have another go somtime later. I also now have another xl1s so I am not so restricted with positioning.
The intro was taken using stills from a Canon 300D, which I was also using between filming, oh and the posts, they are a nightmare its just the way the stand is, and when I arrived I could not get to the end because the BBC was there !! :o
