What did you use to record? What app, timing? Sick!

I use the Drift Innovation camera. Similar to GoPro, but it has a built-in screen so you know what you're shooting at rather than guessing. And the lens can be rotated. In my case, I mounted upside down under the sunroof. So I just rotate the lens 180, and the video will come out right-side-up.

As for the app, it's Harry's LapTimer Pro fro the Apple app store. It records the lap times, the G's, speed, and plot out the map. I downloaded the data, then use a software to overlay the data on the video. And of course, I did get a transponder to compare the lap times recorded by this app.

How did the app compare to the transponder time?

Well, yesterday the app was acting weird until when I got home and found out that I had 2 "start/stop" triggers for ACS. Therefore, the app was splitting the track in two. You can see that in the video too. When I crossed the start/finish in the oval part, the time blinked. Then just under the bridge in the infield section, it blinked again. That was the 2nd trigger (it's where the start/finish is if only running the infield section). Once I combined the two sections from the data, I was able to get the full lap time. In yesterday's event, that lap in the video was a 1:57.693 (from the transponder). The app clocked it at 1:57.67. That's pretty accurate to me.
