HPI Home Movies - Winners!

Wed, 19th February 2014

Brace yourselves, we're taking a look at the phenominal number of entries we recieved for the latest HPI Home Movies contest!

In case you haven't seen it, we've compiled all the greatest videos into one fantastic, explosive, big-air-jumping, rabbit-filled HPI video celebration!

So here's the final round up showing all the honorable mentions and of course the winning video!

Of course, this being an HPI Home Movies contest, we've got a ton of videos we just had to point out for being totally awesome! and there were a TON of totally awesome videos...but only ONE could be the winner!

Let's take a look...

In a few short weeks we recieved hundreds and hundreds of clips, featuring everything from kids with homemade tracks, to professional film producers - All hoping to get their hands on the Baja 5b!  But, there could only be one winner and HPI staff were really keen to see who could come up with something a little different...

#1 Winner: Hombre Negro

Well young Spanish HPI fan Sergio really did fit the bill with his green screen / conveyer belt production. He describes the 'making of' the video: I made this movie with the help of my oldest brother Roberto, he had the idea because many videos were of people drifting and jumping and we thought this would be more original. The person in the video saying 'this is my HPI' is our father. Our whole family helped me make the video, especially my brother!

The grand prize - A brand new HPI Baja 5B! - was presented at Sergio's local hobby store Huelva Hobbies in Southern Spain. Plenty of friends and family turned out for the presentation and unboxing - check out the clip below. We only hope all the family got to have a turn with the 1/5th scale beast on the beach!




#2 Second Place: Chad Rock

Chad and Reed from Urban RCLA sent in this hillarious entry which featured Reed's Baja at the start, but unfortunatly Chad didn't have one to film so he did the next best thing... He became a Baja!  Chad said he was totally surprised to win the second prize - An HPI Bliz, as his partner in crime Reed spotted the Finals clip first and told him he didn't make the cut! 


Well when the prize arrived the guys did what they do best, they made an awesome unboxing and action clip!

Aydin Karmimov from Azerbijan showed us what a super-cool Baja drag race could look like while Beto Lopez produced this cool WR8 Ford Fiesta tribute video that spanned San Francisco. Finally, in Taiwan, Steven Liang featured a ton of HPI kits... and some rabbits!!
