New Trackday Video

I had a blast with a bunch of my friends from the motorcycleaddicts.org site at Grattan Raceway in Michigan last week. Here's the YouTube version of a video I put together using footage from the trip. I hope you like it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pIwZcRfsIE

The high-res version is way cooler; I just hate the way YouTube trashes the video resolution. Right-click and save either of these to see a higher quality movie:

The ultra-super-high-res mpeg version (almost 300 MB):

And the smaller Flash version, a little better than YouTube:

Where is Grattan Raceway in Michigan located at? I'm close to Saginaw just wondering how far it is away from me.

Thanks. I enjoy the track a lot. The elevation changes are really fun, it's got a nice variety, and the setting among the grass and trees is really scenic. If it just weren't so bumpy...

Thank you very much! I'm using the VIO POV.1 camera system, reviewed by me here: http://www.motorcycleaddicts.org/tec...am-system.html. I clamp it to various points around the bike (you can see it on the fairing in some of the photos above), and then edit it all with video editing software.

Yes, the new wide-angle camera head they have gives exceptional quality.
