Exploring Austin: An Onboard Lap Of The Track With Dani Pedrosa
With the Grand Prix of the Americas just a few days away, it's time to take a look at the circuit from another perspective. The footage accumulated by the Repsol Honda team during the private test at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin just keeps on coming, the team having worked closely with both the Red Bull Media House and GoPro organizations to provide assistance.
Today's video comes courtesy of the Repsol Media Service, and is an onboard lap of the circuit shot from the perspective of multiple GoPro Hero 3 cameras mounted on the Honda RC213V of Dani Pedrosa. From the footage, it is clear that Pedrosa is pushing on, but he still has the presence of mind of readjust a camera which had slipped during the lap, despite circulating at speeds far beyond the reach of mere mortals. It is a keen illustration of exactly how focused top MotoGP riders are, and how intense their attention to detail.
