I have been contacted by a representative from Codemasters who are looking for a car to use for some audio recording for an upcoming video game.
They are looking for a 2011/12 Giulietta 1750tbi Cloverleaf with the very minimum a non-standard exhaust.
If there is anyone interested they will need to be available to go to Sywell Aerodrome near Northampton during one day around mid to the end of June when their next batch of recording sessions will be booked (there are no final dates just yet). You will be needed for approximately half the day. In return, you will be paid £400 to cover your expenses and if you have the early session and are traveling from any real distance they will put you up in the hotel onsite the night before. Your name will also appear in the credits for the game and you will receive some copies once it is released.
To enable the recording to be as realistic as possible, your car will have several microphones fixed to it by the audio engineers with a mixture of suction cups and special tape (it doesn't leave residue). The microphones aren't heavy either, most are no heavier than a go pro camera so there would be no damage to your car. These guys do this to all kinds of cars including the absolute exotica and are total pros. One of the engineers will then accompany you in the car to direct you and operate their recorders.
During the session you will need to drive up and down the runway at various speeds and revs up to and including touching the rev limiter, you will also have the opportunity to go as fast as you would like and generally play about as they need all sorts of sounds, fast pull aways, engines revving while stationary, horns, wheelspins, driving fast through the gears etc etc.
Codemasters hire the complete runway for several days at a huge cost and pay well for the cars to be recorded, they are a very professional outfit and in return they expect you to turn up on the day and on time please.
If this sounds like something one of you would be interested in please contact;
