Happy to report that the camera worked fine today.. The position of the camera wasn't bad either, except next time I will aim it a few degrees lower. Many of the racers noticed the cam, many others were completely oblivious. We have about 25 minutes of footage which I will spice up with some editing. Check back tomorrow AM!
In the meantime, have you seen the Wells Ave video recorded two weeks ago? This footage is forward facing. Feedback on which is better: forward or reverse, will be greatly appreciated. Here's Wells Ave A race from April 1st 2007
