Brilliant. I love the Team Faff videos.
But two things  were featured that I've never seen in your films before...

Hotels and door tops  WHTF

You boys going soft in your old age?!

Cheers, not easy flying the drone fully manual at speed using my tiny old generation iPhone screen from the bumpy passenger seat in an 80", I had some very near misses with signposts and various bits of epic landscape.

All the right bits, but not necessarily in the right order.

Thatís an extreme bit of driving in that time frame what a blast ! Amazing.
Did each vehicle share driving ? Did anyone do the whole run behind the wheel and did you stop for fish & chips ?

We took it in turns to drive, not sure if Luke drove it all himself. I wanted to make the best film o could when I wasnít behind the wheel. We stopped off for a brew a few times and a bit of scran but no F&C. We could have shaved quite a bit off this time (not that we were trying for a record) but we did stop a bit, for filming níthat.

cool!
We did the NC500 but promised ourselves that the next time we did it we'd take about 3 weeks to do so, lol.

It took us 9 hours to get the ferry back to the mainland from Arran!
