Want to know what it’s like to race a sports car? Here, split into two segments, is in-car footage shot from my Honda S2000 at a Sports Car Club of America race held at my favorite track – Connecticut’s Lime Rock Park.

The lion’s share of the image is devoted to a camera aimed straight out the windshield. The inset window shows me in the driver’s seat. At my company, Flatout Motorsports, we’ve also got our dashboard data integrated into the image. This is fun because it definitively answers the number one question for any racer: How fast do you go? (At Lime Rock, in my car, the answer is 122 mph.)

This was a good news/bad news race. I started on the pole (good!) and finished fourth (bad!), but it was a tight battle all the way, with an insanely close finish (very good). Enjoy!
