Rumor has it that all Runoffs cars in 2020 will be required to have a forward facing in car camera which shows a minimum of the drivers hands on the steering wheel. I heard this third hand so maybe someone else has more on it.

If true, everyone needs to practice steering with your knees.

Well, San Francisco Region started that this year, due to all of the incidents that either weren't reported, or were reported, but didn't have enough evidence to hold any driver accountable.

https://www.sfrscca.org/wp-content/uplo ... -Final.pdf

Page 8 of the 2020 Supps:

20. FORWARD FACING CAMERAS: All cars must have forward facing cameras. The cameras may be mounted either inside the car, or on the body. If video is needed to make a determination of an on-track incident, a competitor’s video may be requested by race officials whether or not said competitor was involved in the incident. Failure to provide such video may result in a loss of points.

Ours was useful when a GDM ( Miata) spun across our nose , Mike hit the poorly controlled spinning car with our headlight/fender.
T he impound result was that Mike hit the car and started the incident, but the vid showed the facts . Our hit was the second hit , not the first.

What a crock of sh*t. I haven't put a camera in a car in 30 years and don't want to start now. If they force it, I hope they enjoy a clip of my hood vibrating. That is all they are going to see.

This is a bull shit requirement. I have one, but requiring it that’s over the top

that's if you actually remember to start recording, there's a memory card, and fresh battery installed, right?

Ding, ding, ding. Rules nerd points out that none of that is required by the SFR reg. Just need to have a camera installed and facing forward. Dysfunctional Hero (nulls) can be found on eBay for $10-15 shipped.

(Cue Greg's link on "How to Write a Rule"...)

Thanks. I'm becoming selective on whose man-drama I'm willing to tolerate... ;)

That and you have the correct setting. My last race, I have a 5 minute time lapse of the 30 minute race.
I try to record all of my races and have had multiple issues.
