I have looking into DashCams. From what I can tell the attachment methods for these products are either suction cup or double-sided 3m tape affixed permanently to the windshield. Is there any way to make either of these DE tech compatible? My understanding is that directly wiring (not an electrical wire) a camera to the rear view mirror (in addition to one of the above attachments) could possibly meet the requirement (true or did I imagine that?). I am thinking wiring using a tool like:
Our rule is that the camera must be rigidly mounted to the car, which usually means bolted or screwed to the vehicle. Safety-Wiring a camera to your interior mirror might work, although I would defer to our Tech Chief for his input on that. One driver used the same adhesive that is used to mount interior mirrors in many cars to attach a camera bracket to the inside of his windshield and we did allow that as it was a rigid mount. On a Boxster you might be able to make a bracket between the roll hoops to mount a camera, provided it does not impede rearward vision too badly.
I use a GoPro Hero5Black which I have in a housing bolted to my Tow Hook, which is screwed into the frame. The Tow hook attachment is made by the same firm that manufactured the Tow- hook. The waterproof housing was bought off e-Bay.
I use the GoPro remote to start and stop the video. I used to review the video post session after parking in the paddock, but with a larger volume memory card now in the camera, I just set it in the morning and forget it until I’m ready to go home, starting and stopping the camera as required.
After the day ends, I remove the camera, re latch the housing, and unscrew the tow hook.
I download the raw video off the card that evening, and therefore have an empty card for the next day. I spend snowy winter days editing the footage, and analyzing my mistakes.
