Awesome performance! Congratulations! How do you get the speed telemetry into you videos?

Thanks Rocket 

Wonderful videos as usual, George!  Thanks for sharing.  My in-car camera must be set on slow motion - the videos of my run at 105 mph are so much less exciting than yours!

I've tried many different techniques in past, but now I'm going for simple, as turning on video cameras when things get hurried has been a problem.  So the main camera now is a Garmin Dashcam. It turns on automatically and has the gps data display built in. This should answer the question.

The second camera is a Samsung Gear 360, which I can reach and turn on while strapped in.  This gives me both a front and back view simultaneously, though the resulting video is more distorted. I also have 4 other cameras mounted, but they didn't get turned on this event because of time and logistical constrains at the starting line. A GoPro attached to the roll cage behind the seats to capture the road and cabin, a JVC camcorder attached to the roll cage pointed and zoomed in at the auxiliary gauges, a backup 4k dashcam (that wasn't plugged in when the radar detector was removed), and a cheap 4K actioncam on the rear bumper (that was turned on, but the record button wasn't pressed).

I then use VideoStudio to put them together.

Do you know the model number of your Garmin dash cam?  I have a dash cam with GPS speed and position stamping on video, but discovered during Sunday's race  that it disables the speed stamp for any speeds above 123 mph.  <grrr>

It's the Garmin Dash Cam 20.  They have newer models out now, but I don't know if they have an upper cut off. I also have the Frizione Dash Cam 4K which recorded over 200 mph, but the image quality wasn't as good and the speed numbers were a little off...

I think you have the one for people that run the 110 class and don't want evidence of exceeding tech.

Thanks Tom.  I do have four suggests for you to spice up your videos.  Increase the playback by 60%, only show video of your car in the narrows, put the camera under the front bumper four inches off the ground, or put a roll cage, fuel cell, racing seats, harnesses, and fire system into that new car of yours and run Super Sport again.  I don't think you've won the 170 or 180 classes yet.

Yeah, well George, you're forgetting one other crucial element for running 170 and/or 180: courage.  The NSX could be modified suitably, but I'm not so sure about the driver. 

Great videos George, thanks for sharing. I've tried Gopro's and more recently Trackaddict app on my phone. Maybe you could host a video and editing meeting at a future event. BTW, would you mind my sharing some video's on one of my Facebook pages?

Mike,

I can talk about the things I've tried and found that works, but I'm no expert on video production.

As for sharing videos on facebook, as long as you use the URL and not download and upload the videos that is ok.
