Sixth annual Ambush, arranged by great fellow Paul, had a track day embedded in it.
Here is video from my car.

Thanks for the video. Your car has a lot of "get up and go"! This is a really good example of why it makes more sense to drive a Locost style car instead of a Porsche on a track. Another good example is what a repair bill for a Porsche looks like after a mistake.

I also found a couple of your hillclimb videos. I don't remember if you posted links yet, but I'll put them here for people to see.

I am curious how curvy that hill climb is. I watched a couple of videos of a local hillclimb I used to run and noticed the two different cameras gave completely different perspectives of the same course. One made it look like one long straight and the other made it look like a maze. I think the wide angled lenses really flatten out the scenery and make the course look easy.

I too enjoyed the video, if you don't mind me asking what kind of camera were you using?

I gave up on alternatives and went with Go-Pro-cameras.

The one facing front is Hero 2 and the one facing back is Hero borrowed from a friend, Thanks Jeff.

The Dragon Hillclimb is on again on the last weekend of September, come and say hi, ifyou have a chance!

Great videos - looks like a blast.

Nice save at around the 5:20 mark.
