Post your track videos here!

Well, I searched LT to see if anyone started a dedicated thread to post their TRACK videos.
I didn't find one, so I'm hoping this turns into a ONE STOP THREAD similar to the "post a picture of your Lotus next to regular cars" thread. So, if you have track footage please start sharing. As an intermediate driver, I'm always looking for video footage to help improve my skills.
Who's going to start the show?

O.K. That's a good start. Thank you, sir.
Now it's time for you track rats to start posting your videos. DON'T BE LAZY, you know you have them and this thread is where they belong:-)

Here's a video I took a couple weeks ago at Watkins Glen, it's only a couple of warm up/shake down laps after the rebuild I did this year, unfortunately I didn't roll the camera during the session that i was giving her some stick..

ttime4four, I just watched one of your track videos. I'm not sure I've ever seen that rear facing view into the cockpit before. Where is that mounted? To the passenger side headlight housing? Looks like a tight fit for the two of you. Lol. The passenger is holding the door with his LEFT arm. Funny.

Mikelr, I'm not able to view. I'm using my AutoGuide app on my antiquated iPhone 3Gs.

It's mounted on the fender just rearward of the headlight. Definitely a tight fit in the cockpit for two full sized adults.

I'll post my video from NHMS. It was my first time on the track in the Elise. Came from a supercharged miata, and was uncomfortable in the rain. Have been to the track since and I have a lot more confidence and feel for the car. Video was taken from friends 64 Vette and his grandson in the stands. Not very fast, but I love the sound of my Larini exhaust as I pass the Vette.

Ugh.........Well, seems to be working in Safari, but not in the AutoGuide app. Hmmm

Not my fastest ever but my coolest video. This is at High Plains Raceway in Byers, CO. My 2006 Exige on R888s


Nose camera is a Contour, Original wide angle Hero at my feet and a Chasecam SD for the interior. Data from my Traqmate overlayed with RaceRender and TraqDash.

Don't embed, just post the URL directly like this;


The forum software handles the embed.

all vids are AIM evo4 with smartycam.

Trashing an elise gearbox at Portland International few years back:

EP Sequential/Geartronics tuning at Pacific Raceways last week:

ECU goes wonkey at PIR this year:

Stupidest thing you can do with an elise (take it to the go cart track)

Pacific Raceways 3b spin and slow motion...
