    Awesome!! Looking good. I would suggest moving the spedo gauge in the vid so that side of the car is more visible in the corner .

    I'll change the speedo location. Camera is I-phone blue taped to my rear view mirror. I tried a suction cup windshield mount and it bounced badly.

    Enjoyed the video! Was a nicely controlled clean bit of spirited driving.

    From the sound of it, that's an exceptionally bumpy track, so that may be why the suction cup mount wasn't stable. With that said, I've seen plenty of folks using their phones to gather video at the track, so maybe the mount you have just isn't a particularly good one? I dunno.

    When I shoot video, I angle the camera down some more. (I understand that may not be possible using your current mounting method.) I don't really need 80-90% sky in the video - what I want to see is what's happening on track. So, angling the camera down gives me less sky and more hood. I don't need to see the hood, either, but having the hood on the bottom 1/4 - 1/3 of the video gives me a convenient place to put my gauge overlays, track map, etc without covering up what's going on on track.
