When I was considering something smaller than my DSLR for photos and video I was looking at the Sony RX100 series. All models from the MkIV onwards have 4K video recording and used prices appear to be quite reasonable.

While you're trying out the DSLR, consider how you're zooming and focusing. I'm guessing that you'll be filming cars going down the track and the motorised zoom on the compact cameras might not be the best for this. It still surprises me how much DSLRs are used for filming considering their limitations but they seem to work well.
