Your video looks well-done to me - not boring considering the requirements you are adhering to. Along with many other types of video productions over the years, I also shoot action sports. I am currently involved in a Speedway Motorcycle Racing project for promotional purposes. Although I own and use several DSLR units in my business, I still use video cameras with powered zoom lenses for the majority of action sports. In the past, it was large Beta-cam units for SD. Now, it is smaller form factor cameras that are capable of 1080 60p, but with a power zoom. Low light capability is also a big deal for me, as most of the race schedule is based upon late spring through early fall night races under the lights. I use a lot of slow-motion in my edits, and quality 1080 60p is a must. I usually shoot on a custom rig that holds(2)cameras, a video camera for tracking shots and a DSLR for wider, locked down shots, with lens choice depending on available light and size of track. I end up with (2)versions of the same race to choose from in the edit. By the way, I am not up on the photo tower shooting all four quick laps of the race. I am in the infield of a small dirt oval trying to capture the dynamics from a different POV. Good Luck!
