Motorsport anyone?

Anybody out there known anyone who has done motorsport projects? Looking to do a documentary or mockumentary at something like the Gumball, Carrera Pan America, F1 at Indy/Canada or WRC. Any contacts, ideas or experinces with this stuff? I've done mostly personal stuff, with occasional work for racer friends, but no pro's have ever wanted to share the wealth of knowledge based on their experinces. Any input?

Have tried to keep a Formula 1 car in focus, coming straight at me at 300 kmh on the straight of Jerez circuit with the Canon XL1 standard 16 x lens. That didn't work very well, as can be expected.
Get permission to get near the teams in the pits at trainings or get friendly with a local bike racer and follow him for a while, but get close to the action. And switch your sound to "Attenuate".
