    Not my fastest run(but the only one with video) and not even the only one I spun at the finish 😉 And one more thing to check… moisture inside the Gopro case, sorry for the haze on the left.

    Guys, thanks for everything and thanks for the folks that posted pics. Great time!!

    I happened to take the following video of the GTI that ran in run group 4 to show my buddy that owns a GTI. Not sure who’s it is, but I posted in case the owner is watching this thread.

    Thanks Mark. My hit rate is pretty low with this camera due to the lack of focus tracking capability that contrast-detect autofocus provides. I took 200 photos yesterday and only liked 10 of them well enough to share them. That’s a pretty bad keeper ratio.

    It was super-fun. Here’s my video from 3 runs and different cam positions – just for fun.

    Very pleased with that run (in case you can’t tell).

The autofocus on my camera’s a little iffy, so I’ll usually pre-focus on somewhere I’m expecting the car to be and keep the focus locked in (half press of the shutter button) until the car arrives in the frame. Cones make a reasonable thing to focus on. If the camera’s having a really bad day or I’ll be taking lots of the same shot I’ll switch it to manual focus and lock it in for good. (And try to remember to turn the AF back on when I’ve finished.)
