Super high speed camera footage at Road America last weekend

It's raining in Chicago and whats more fun on a rainy day than to play on the internet

Design engine rented a high speed camera over the Road America race weekend (and trackdays) and here is part of what we made... including my crash caught on the GoPro in Canada Corner on the last race of the day.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mORYZ27ucLg < this one is of my girl find sondra and me when she heard over the PA that she could come claim her cell phone that we thought we lost at Walmart

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u0P8m...RC5soF8j_A6uRQ < this one could probably use more fast action. The fire works at the end are epic. Notice the Apex manufactured bars They didn't brake in my crash in Canada corner and I rode the bike back (next video)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpPWnHdA_qE < Canada corner crash. The GoPro Tumble is classic and Sondra dancing at the end is hilarious... I'll add comments to the videos today.

yea. I blew that only once and got it on video. I take speed in thru there and that's Carl in front of me. He swung out wide and got me on the paint. I should have snuck under but the grass came fast if you know what I mean.

Eeeeks - Hate seeing high sides - Hope you are okay man
