Gearhouse Broadcast France was on location with Host Production Facilities and Crew at the F1H2O Grand Prix of China last weekend, in Xiamen on the south-east coast of China.
Seventeen boats took to the 2.5km course, which saw Team Abu Dhabi’s Shaun Torrente survive an incident-strewn race, to take a start-to finish victory and regain the lead in the championship. It was a tough outing for all competitors, with strong winds churning up the waters of Wuyan Bay and just nine of the 17 starters making it to the chequered flag.
The Gearhouse team delivered a bespoke 10-camera package, with four additional onboard facilities capturing driver POV footage and engine sound. The sun was out for the occasion, but the high winds meant plenty of crashes, making it all the more enjoyable TV entertainment.
The next stop on the calendar is the UAE on the 20/21st of December.
