Yesterday, I met up with a few members of my race team taking part in the 24hr race at Buckmore park circuit. The race had been postponed from April to early Oct for obvious reasons.
We have 8 in our team which includes 2 other uks members.

Anyway, still not sure whether I can pull this off but im wanting to film our time there, much like top gear did in the Britcar 24. However since covid restrictions won't allow anyone not racing access to the venue I've had to come up with a different plan as I want to get both a trackside and a driver point of view. Trackside is relatively easy as I've a couple of camcorders and we've all got phones etc. But what about the action from the drivers point of view?
So, used the practice time to try out a very discreet video camera inside my helmet. (Go pro's fitted onto helmets are banned here).
I've quickly edited the 30min session down to just over 10, but not bad results from a cheap Chinese cam. However, I must learn to keep my head up as it lowers whenever I'm on one lol
