Video When GoPros attack
This is why track schools dont like onboard cameras
THERE'S a reason track day organisers get nervous about helmet and on-board cameras and this is it.
Posted on LiveLeak two days ago, the video shows rider Barry Reynolds taking a hit from a flying GoPro at 160mph during a track day at Texas World Speedway. The camera had fallen off a bike in front.
According to the post on LiveLeak, the camera smashed through the bike's screen and destroyed the instrument cluster before hitting Reynolds in the chest. Thankfully he was able to stay upright. A shot at the end of the video shows the smashed screen and clocks.
The post says: 'You can imagine what could have happened if it would have been about a foot higher. Please tether your cameras when on the track.'
