Gary, with where my camera was mounted, to get the effect you're requesting I would've had to have been sitting on the hood!

Thanks Ken. I didn't post the run where I mowed over four cones and then said some bad words.

I made a contraption that allowed me to stand upright while holding the camera about a foot off the ground. The idea was to enhance the 3D effect by having cones in close proximity in the foreground while various cars whizzed by on the track.

Presenting... Mostly Gary

Yeah, you've got to be a car nut to appreciate the video.

Patrick, Nice camera work.. the edit looks like i was just going round and round. 

While i viewed the runs, a breeze was drifting in an open door.. it was just like being there, minus the heat.

Al, i guess my bobbing head days are going to come to an end.. It will be an interesting transition..

I wanted to post the official course map so that the in-car videos might make more sense.

I didn't buy a Mini, so I had to purchase my 3D glasses through eBay.  

However, just $4 for five pair of plastic-framed anaglyph (red-blue) 3D glasses direct from China to my doorstep... and that included shipping!

I gotta say though, I'm not all that impressed with anaglyph 3D video. The image/color quality of the video really takes a dive when viewed in this manner. For short videos, the "cross-eyed" technique with no glasses results in much better 3D video quality.
