This Is Awesome: Watch a Pit Stop Recorded Using Thermal Imaging

Thermal imaging makes pit stops look spectacular

As if the stopwatch ballets commonly referred to as pit stops weren’t interesting enough to watch already, BMW has gone and made it more fun by an order of magnitude through the use of thermal imaging. The wheels and tires are preheated, hence their red glow. The crew’s all blue, save for hints of red at their necklines, and the BMW M4 DTM, its grilles glowing red behind as it comes in for fresh rubber, looks even meaner as the heat-sensitive imager captures the flames licking from the exhausts.
