Shell Advance 7 Riding Wonders of the World competition

On location at Shell's Ultimate Riding Wonder track, the Coorg-Ooty-Munnar route.

Toast recently put our new miniature GoPro Hero 2s cameras through their paces at the Shell Advance 7 Riding Wonders of the World competition. The competition got motorcycle lovers from across the globe to vote on their favourite roads to ride on.

We were filming on behalf of Hotheads, Shell Advance Oils and Ducati. The filming took place on the newly crowned world’s Ultimate Riding Wonder, the Coorg-Ooty-Munnar route. This road from was chosen out of the top seven routes that had been voted for through this extensive online campaign.

We used all manner of helmet mounts, body mounts, rubber suckers, arms, clamps and imagination. This meant that the Go Pros put the viewer firmly in the saddle on this amazing journey through the Hill Stations and Tea plantations of Kerela.

We even managed a few GoPro time lapse sequences. The GoPro Hero 2 is reputedly the most versatile camera in the world. It certainly lived up to its name on this occasion.
