PORSCHE DRIFT 997 Turbo on Dirt Track Eddie Hall

As you get settled in this morning, organizing your thoughts as you prepare to tackle the day’s tasks, let yourself be open to inspiration. Change things up a little. Leave some room for something unexpected. Take a 997-generation Porsche 911 Turbo to a dirt track in Oklahoma and just drift around like a madman.

That’s what driver Eddie Hall did with a crew of photographers and filmmakers at the Salina Highbanks northeast of Tulsa. Between the grunt and howl of the twin-turbo flat six and the billowing clouds of dust in its wake, this looks like a glorious way to spend time behind the wheel.

According to the video description, the team’s goal was to capture “the shot”—ostensibly a single dynamic image showing the 911 in all of its all-wheel-drive, 480-hp, dirt-slinging glory. Of course, it can take a long time to get the perfect shot, and the creative process itself can have unexpected rewards, as this video shows.

You can see more of Watt Design Photography’s portfolio on its website here, including a pair of gems from the dirt-track shoot here and here.
