First attempt at a home 'Elise' movie, made primarily to prove to a few mates back in Europe that the US DOES have great driving roads (no they're not all straight -poke-). Loads I would do differently next time but you live and learn and work with what footage you shot on the day!
Nice job editing --especially in the beginning!

Nice Job! I like the style of the video. :clap:

For those of you who want to get a camera gripper for your car (if you are careful and keep both the panels and suction cup free of dust it leaves no marks (not that I could see anyway, even with a torch :)) this site (Camera Mounts for Cars) has everything and at $89 it seemed pretty reasonable.

Sorry guys, I don't pop by here too often but just to advise there are loads of Elise Onboard Videos from races and trackdays in the UK on my Youtube Channel

YouTube - MaxxUK's Channel

Just do a search for Lotus or Elise.

Here are a couple of direct links to a recent Elise Trophy Race at Croft Circuit in the North of England.

Whoever that is needs to keep both hands on the wheel.. He spends quite a significant amount of time with one hand on the shifter.

Some really enjoyable short races that I found on YouTube today. All have some good build up and well executed driving with the Lotus. The Phillip Island Race was especially fun with the Ford and Porche competition on the Lotus during both 8 lap races.
