In Car Camera from Shangri-La II 5.13.12

I seen a few cars at the track Sunday with GoPro cameras mounted on there race cars.  Anybody with in-car footage post the videos yet.  Lets see what you guys got for footage from opening day at the Concrete Castle?

you know i thought it be cool to do this there cheap enough $200

but reading the rules some where it says no electronic devices mounted in car? cant seem to find it if maybe someone could check into that (  i will)    I might just get 1 in a car or 2.

I have in car footage from my heat and feature. Its really unimpressive as I only ran 6 laps in the heat and not many more in the feature. I plan on doing the in car footage every week and then editing to share on my Face Book page but like I said this week is not even worth wasting the time to edit. :(

We plan on using them weekly (weakly?)  I bought them for the boys and I for christmas.  Should be interesting, to say the least!

I use movie maker, it was already on my computer and is pretty easy to use. Also use a lower resolution and it will upload faster.

I think you're referring to rule 5.6.1 but reading it to the 'letter of the law', memory tachometers and transponders would be also be illegal, I'm reasonably confident they mean data recorders similar to Cup and F1 etc. and that cameras (memory tachs and transponders!!) would be ok.  JMO

Well here ya go. Like I said nothing special. If you skip to the end I get lapped and that is the most exciting part. We still have some work to do but we'll get it figured out!
Also some how I turned the sound off for the heat not sure how? its there for the feature.

When SL2 opened we had a GoPro in Ben Reynolds Late Model, I have those videos floating around somewhere if anyone would like to see them, anyway back on topic persay at the time we spoke with Tech and they said the camera was fine and the rule did pertain to data recorders.
 
Nice job on the video Chris.

Just a GoPro Hero 2. Resolution is set pretty low for uploading. You can get them most any where. I bought mine from Best Buy. I'm still getting used to the editing but once i figure it out I think I could bring my lap top to the track, copy other peoples SD cards to it quick after the races and go home that week and make a pretty neat edited video of multiple in car views. That would be pretty cool!
