The Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix at BeaveRun-July 10-12, 2009-Photos and Videos

This was great fun with good weather and nice cars. Once again VRG has done an excellent job with this event. Please check out the videos on this link......I am using forward-looking and rear-looking cameras mixed together; it's kind of an interesting perspective.

The Jefferson 500 Vintage at Summit Point, WV-May 2009-Photos and Videos

This is a resurrected event that ran for some years and then stopped for several years. It was started by Bill Scott (owner of Summit) and Brian Redmond (both in attendance at the 2009 event). The event also included a reunion of racers from the old Marboro Raceway (long closed now). These included Ray Stone (who raced his Bugeye), Randy Canfield, Joe Hauser and others. There was moderate rain during event but it it was still a good success (with roughly 200 cars). Only one of my sessions (over threee days) was truly "wet"...and still fun.

~~Video~~Karting at GP-New York with VRG-Feb 2009

 

Note: Turn down the volume if you don't like my goofy choice of music. ;)

The video above has poor camera angle and low resolution. Despite this problem, I hope you'll get *some* idea of the fun we had. Part of the problem is the GoPro solid state camera I used. This camera has no built-in monitor. And so, it is impossible to see if the camera is set up right (angle-wise) until you download it to your computer. Even a small amount of error in pointing the camera can spoil things. For 2009, I will mostly use my "Flip" solid state video camera.....a much better unit in my opinion and cheaper too! The Flip has a nice monitor to do test videos when you're setting up. It also uses AA batteries, which last *much* longer than the AAAs in the GoPro. And the video quality seems better, especially in low light conditions. Although I dislike the GoPro camera, I do like the attachment apparatus that came with it.....I'll probably try to adapt that to the Flip camera.

Overall, a stupid event that I would not bother with again. But our team was a great group and we had fun despite the fact that this was a very poor example of "motorsports".
