Had two days out at VIR, this was my first track event so didn't know what to expect. What a rush!

Here is a video of three laps, as I said first time on track so all my lines weren't the best.

Thanks for the video. It is great at 5 minutes in when the beast is able to shine.

Thanks, it was a blast. The camera is the Hero GoPro, great little camera with mounts for the windscreen.

Yes, I'm very happy with the quality and sound for such a small camera. I'm thinking about picking a second one up for some exterier video.

They do have accommodations right there, where in VA do you live?

Cool. Looks like you picked up speed on successive laps. Nice to get to 148 on the back straight too!

I have a GoPro also. Which mount did you use? I have not had much luck with inside windshield mounting so far.
I used the inside windhield mount, haven't had any problems with it. Once it's stuck on it's there until I pry it off. I was thinking about picking up a second one for an exterier mount. Thought that would be some interesting video.

We weren't allowed any timing equipment but I feel like I did pretty well for my first track session. I must say it is very addictive, I'm already looking at the schedules for the next one. Two days of nonstop adrenaline, I'm ready for another fix!
