A couple of laps around the Autobahn Country Club at the TrackDaze event on September 12th, 2009. This was my first time here, and also the first time using a GoPro Hero wideangle camera. I mounted it to the front bumper to get a different view, and while the effect is kinda cool I think its hard to get a feel for the track layout. Anyway it was a great event and if I hadn't destroyed a rotor and developed a Boost leak I would have been back for more the next day :)

VSCDA Blackhawk Formula Vee Feature Race 6/15/2014 (Complete)
The Formula Vee Feature Race at the VSCDA Blackhawk Vintage Classic XXII.
In what's becoming an annual tradition, Bill Griffith of Bigger Hammer
Racing and I had an action-packed race and we captured it all from both of
our cars. Bill started 5th on the grid and finished 4th chasing Chuck
Buysse; I started 9th and finished 5th, right behind Bill.
Frankly I shouldn't have been anywhere near Bill - his car was clearly much
faster than mine, as you can see
on the straights, but as the racing gods would have it Bill's Warrior
developed a strange brake issue that allowed me to stay competitive. I also
owe thanks to Bill's crew who helped me with some fittings when I had to
replace my fuel cell right before qualifying.
Bill once again provided me the footage from his GoPro camera and this time
I've tried something different, using a split-screen view to show all the
action from three cameras. It's busy, possibly confusing - you'll either
love it or hate it :)
After the initial opening lap scramble (which Bill had a bit of a moment in
turn 7), I get past Mike Rogers on the approach to 6a and start tracking
down the leaders. A couple of laps later Bill puts the move on Chuck on the
front straight with Frank Newton drafting behind him and passes them both
in turn 1 (all of which has let me catch right up to them).
Now the split screen view gets really interesting as for the rest of the
race Chuck, Bill and I battle for 3rd, 4th and 5th place - with all three
cars visible in at least one of the three camera views at all times.
I held Bill at bay for several laps, but at the end he made a great run at
me through turns 5 and 6 and blew by me before we ever got to 6a, and at
that point I knew he had me.
So ends another great weekend with the Bigger Hammer Racing cars from
Texas, I hope they make the trek to South Beloit again next year!
