Default Track videos thread

Folks, I started a sticky thread in the 996 GT3 forum, listing all the "must read" threads for the 6GT3.
If it goes well, we can apply it in this forum too.

Anyway.. VR had an idea about a track video thread. I think it's a good idea to make a video repository thread, with members posting their vids from various tracks around the world.


Let me know what you think..

Best,

excellent idea, it will be nice to have such a repository. Although it will be a bit rough in the beginning to sift through the effects of car type, setup, and skill, I think some useful information will rise to the top.

Very nice idea.personally I'm (still) not too familiar with tracks, but having possibility to watch vids from other 6gt3 buddies around the world is exiting and always useful.I'm supporting the idea.

just a thought, and I'm sure I'm being too idealistic, but maybe only videos with data overlayed should be posted? Just a thought. Videos w/o data are ok and good for showing lines but I think they are far less useful than ones with data (rpms, mph, etc)

Thanks, John!

Something else we can do, as time permits (if folks are interested) is perhaps encourage coaching commentary from those familiar with the track shown?

I like the data overlay part as well. Since I don't have that, I don't have to post my slow laps

Great, thanks guys.

Regarding vids with data overlay , they are great but let's not exclude the ones without.

Dave, I think that comments on the vids (from real coaches or guys like me : ) ) are in the nature of the thread and very welcome..Let's keep it relaxed though, and see how it goes.
Fast laps or perfect lines are nice but vids from various tracks, coming from drivers with mixed experience, (and not necessarily technically correct) can also be very enjoyable.





For easier reference, I think that you should post an embedded vid or link to a vid including:

Track name:

1. Driver (Member/user name if applicable) - Car type - lap time (if applicable) - includes data (Y/N)
- date






Tip for properly embedding YouTube vids:


[ yt ]insert_video_code_here[ /yt ]

example:
Pick a youtube vid and from the browser, copy the combination of letters and numbers after the =.

like this :

done.

Like so?

Maybe one where we have reference links to tracks from only GT2 and GT3 cars? Just to park them and for others to scout out a track before going there and perhaps see what a decent traget lap time is to shoot for.

And another to upload your latest video to be commented on by others' and coaches, ask for advice, learn from it, etc. Or in my case ignored and laughed at ;-)

Great idea VR and nicely spec'd John thanks! This will be a veritable wiki of tracks, lines, braking points ... and driving styles Looking forward to it as a replacement for the ESPN3 I don't get down here in low bandwidth land!
