    Go pros.


    Where’s the best place to mount for the best view.

    Car has recaros and no cage.


    So no cage or headrest mounts.


    Currently using a suction mount on the screen with cable ties to visor as you need a secondary tether on track.



    Cheers

    Suction mount on the back of the Recaro? That's what I'm thinking of trying out.

    I've got a clamp mount which i mount on the passenger seat. I found that suction mounts don't work on the recaro's back as the surface/trim is not smooth enough.

    The view is this;



    Another view that I like (mainly when running dual cameras though) is from the rear passenger window with the seat down. Suction mount works a treat there.



    My favourite is from outside the car on the driver's rear window but not really an option on track days. You can run a mic from within the car all the way to where the groove is for opening the boot, Use some duct tape to kill the wind.



    Hope that helps.

    I’ve stuck a pad onto the centre of the dash above the clock display.
    Gets a nice field of view and easy to reach for turning on and off etc.

    I'm not using a goPro mate but a Sony, I'm sure there are clamp mounts for goPros though!

    I've later re-done this way more accurately, but all in all the concept stays the same. Two holes in a brick of wood. Done.

    The video looks like this:

    so i just bought this off ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162710357855 with a roating 360 degree mount so i can have it say right in the middle. apparently you get some vibrations on the seats but having a hero 5 stabilization feature should work a treat. If not ill be using my helmet for a POV :wink:
