“Some of our friends got some excellent video from the Mexican 1000 this year with their GoPro cameras. I’m so glad we’ll be able to do the same,” said Emme Hall. “Additionally I’ll be able to use the GoPro to record in car footage for my Roadfly TV car reviews, get some shots while running autocross with the Sports Car Club of America, and I’ll take it with me to Morocco when I run the Rallye Aiche des Gazelles in 2012. GoPro cameras are easy to use, nearly impossible to break, and deliver fantastic video.”
