Returnee!

Having missed season as many know I will be out in the MR2 this year, which survived the Curbs test day!

A couple of questions:

Presumably nothing changed last/this season on personal safety gear or car requirements (roadgoing).

The in car camera's seem a good idea. Any good experiences? I do not want to spend a let. Mountings? no roll cage.

GoPro Hero 3 upwards for a camera. There are many cheap alternatives, but none seem to handle the contrast in light between inside and outside the car as well.

Thanks Steve, with the glass roof contrast in the MR2 is not too bad.
