We can’t get enough of how brilliant the visor cams are in IndyCar. The cars themselves are pretty brutal to drive and the old-school tracks the series visits can be quite bumpy, and the visor cam gives fans the most immersive view of the action there is.
Road America is one of the great road courses of North America – it’s undulating, it’s fast, and it has some truly great corners. The long, downhill right-hander of the Carousel into the fast 170mph kink is up there among the best sections of track anywhere in the world. Seeing it all from the visor cam of Chip Ganassi driver Tony Kanaan is the best way to experience it short of actually going driving the circuit yourself.
Although this was shot during a practice session, this year IndyCar has actually started using the visor cam in the races too. If you want to see the start from Graham Rahal’s perspective (which of course you do), then skip to the 22:05 mark in the video below.
Come on F1, we need visor cams and we need them now!
