HCMC Roundabout GP – H&A

HCMC Roundabout 250 – Aussies win!

It was a pleasure working with Radio Karate to produce Australia’s Number 1 entertainment show “Hamish and Andy’s Gap Year Asia”. Asia Film Fixers provided pre-production advice, production support, location scouting, fixing, props and location management for the three weeks that the Hamish and Andy crew traveled through Vietnam and Cambodia.

Our local fixers provided the ‘on the ground’ assistance, whilst our expatriate team made sure everything behind the scenes ran smoothly. It was during this shoot that one of the most widely watched and risky show sequences took place, when Hamish and Andy decided to conduct their ‘race around the roundabout GP’, in Ho Chi Minh City, where the hosts raced around one of the busiest roundabout intersections in Vietnam. A total of 250 laps – with many calling this more dangerous than the real Moto GP!

Myself and Adam Martin sourced, purchased and provided the green and yellow mini-gp bikes! Enjoy this:
