One of my friends owns a new Mustang Boss and wanted to race it at a local SCCA event. I loaned him my GoPro Hero and he attached it to his front bumper, somewhat to the left of center.
When his turn came to race around the pylons, he was doing great until he got a little gung-ho with the accelerator pedal and spun off the track. Wham! He smashed dead center into a telephone pole – not hurting himself but caving in the front of his new Mustang.
The Mustang was declared a total loss, but my GoPro wasn’t. It only suffered a crack on the case lens area, and the case latch broke. The video camera itself was fine; it recorded the entire crash, which is something my friend didn’t enjoy viewing!
