To be honest, I don't know if you really want to hear my feedback because it's probably not going to be what you think you want but here goes: :-)

I think the main area you can improve in has nothing to do with new gear - the videos I've watched of yours over the last few months are all basically shots of bikes racing around the track - and if that's all you are going for they're not bad, not at all. But what is lacking is any kind of attention to STORY, I find the videos you've posted boring and repetitive but a lot of that has to do with the fact that I'm not a fan of the sport. But if I WERE a fan, I think I'd be asking you where are the racer interviews? Where is the technical information about the bikes and the track, and of the race itself that fans want? You could also benefit by varying the pacing and the "style" a bit - I realize that racing videos are often not much more than upbeat music, "in your face" graphics and transitions - but aren't you tired of that already?

Why are you creating these videos? That's an important question I haven't asked yet...are they basically promotion for bike or gear manufacturers? In any case, I bet 80% of your peers doing similar racing videos would take the same approach as you have done. I'd say set yourself apart and try something more interesting and then use the shots of the actual racing as B-roll, the spice - not the main meal.
