G'day All,

Competed in the first of four Rounds of the Tasmanian Circuit Racing Championship last weekend, held at my local track, Baskerville Raceway.  It's a 2km circuit and has a lot of really good elevation change - short but great fun.

The event format is Sprint Racing - so just 5 laps from a standing start to get the best out of your car.

Here's my new PB and the fastest time for cars in this class for the weekend - 52.45 seconds

When I purchased the car I had hoped it might do a 54 second lap at this track... it did that the first time I drove it with 3 year old Dunlops still on it.

My previous best from November last year was a 53.1, and I had hoped a 52 might be possible... now I'm thinking a 51 will be the target... 

Best rolling lap from the same session was a 52.28

Apologies for the audio in this short video - I've tried to adjust the audio gain 'manually' in the SmartyCam settings, but so far no luck.  This was with the gain adjustment in Auto again, but still seem to have a noisy signal.  Maybe my microphone is sick?

Great driving Rod. Where is your SmartyCam located in the car? I have mine located on the passenger side wall and get pretty good audio. 

Not the best place to install SmartyCam

@tommymills - G'day Tommy... Eagles Canyon looks like a fantastic track.  Smooth driving!

I appreciate your reply and the photos to make it clear.  My camera controller is located in exactly the same part of the car as yours (passenger side of the cockpit), but of course 'down under' we have right hand drive cars, so its on the opposite side to yours.  That means its not on the ECU panel cover, but on the other side of the aluminium panel to the 'starter battery' and the gearchange compressor.

Any idea what you 'audio gain' is set to?

Is your camera the newer version - it looks like you have a bronze/gold coloured wire going between the controller and the camera itself.  I think that's the newer SmartyCam HD??
