I also have to take care that I am not seen to be timing as this invalidates the Track Operators insurance, and would mean instant sending off. What do you use, how do you overcome these issues.
For the drackdays on racecircuits, there I have to comply with having everything fixed firmly to the car, no rubber suckers. I have to clamp my camera to the roll bar, iPhone in the glovebox, with the Dual XGPS on the dash. This means I cannot use the iPhone for video and have to try and synch my camera to the HLT data.

My track car is an MX5 with the hood down, so it is easy to see what's inside the car. I don't fit in the car with the hood up and a helmet on, so that's not an option!
