There's nothing quite like witnessing an automotive race in person. The sights, sounds, smells – it's a magical experience for anyone with petrol flowing freely through their veins. But it's just not possible to personally attend every race on the planet, and sometimes, television coverage leaves much to be desired.
Enter GoPro, maker of those little clear-plastic-housed cameras you see all over the place. The crew attached its HD Hero2 cams all over a couple of ALMS cars driven by Gunnar Jeannette and Ken Dobson as they battled the field at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
There are helmet-cams, shots up high and down low, from the front and toward the rear, all catching fender-to-fender racing at its finest. There's even some views showing what life is like for a mechanic in the pits. See for yourself in the video after the break. As an added bonus, you can also watch raw footage of each driver's laps in separate videos.
