    It was great to watch that back Mike, however it makes it look a lot less severe then it actually was, :):thumbsup:

    Excellent video Mike just watched it 3 times :thumbsup::D.
    Brought back some fab memories.
    What camera is it ? It's so smooth and doesn't move with the car...so to speak :).

    It is a basic Go pro Hero, there is an adhesive mount which conveniently and unobtrusively fits on top of the dashboard. Unlike the more sophisticated versions, you cannot see what it is recording until you download it.:)

    I think we should be allowed access to the Ladies Lounge to see what they're gabbing about, it's discrimination being banned! :whistle:
