Default Occasional glimpses of my car at HPDE day.



Not a good film but it has some shots of my car at Portland Raceway running with the BMW club. The car taking the film is a WMC Lotus 7 replica running an S2000 drivetrain. I pass him about 1 minute in and run away. Unfortunately the camera was zoomed in too much and you don't see enough of what's important- ME!



I've got to get a camera to use in my car. Sucks to have to rely on other peoples film.

Impressive, I wouldn't have expected you to pass a f20 super7.

Get a damn digi camera, they are cheap as hell these days.

Look into Go-Pro camera.
Can be zip tied absolutely any where you please and uses SD cards. Very low maintenance and good bang for the buck.
Here's an example.....just forgive the popping control arms. Bushings have seen their better days in this run.

Nice suggestions. I'll be shopping for one today!!!

I was doing a little research yesterday and yep. About a hunsky should do me fine.

The owner of the WMC 7 said he's looking forward to the rematch. He was running on street tires that day. Now he's got r-comps. Still I expected that thing to be a lot faster. He's not inexperienced either. He's been running an M3 at the track for years. It was his 1st time at PIR though. He should have gone Turbo Miata running gear instead of the poser S2000 stuff!
