I didn’t see any posts, so I thought I would share an in car video from the Rennsport Gmund Cup, and a few pictures. If anyone else has any videos or pictures, please post!

Final race video with 4 camera shots combined:
https://vimeo.com/297228690. I think it is fun to see the rear facing shots of all the action going on behind that I can’t see! Video courtesy of Rennfilms.com

Straight shifters are legal? What kind of transmission do you use?

That is not sequential, it is just an aftermarket shifter with closer gates.

Thanks for the videos Andrew and Gregory, When you are battling for 14th it's hard to see what's going on up ahead!
Good clean race for all of us.
Cheers, Arthur

Here is a picture from Rennsport VI and the Gmund Cup. I have a lot more to add, but they are all over 2mb, so having a problem adding them.

The third picture above shows Vic performing a major "peek". I'm sure Vic would never break a rule BUT if the green is not out he should have gotten a black flag. Of course he would say he was just pushing the rules a little or he might say, I've started over 800 races and if you aren't trying to get an advantage at the start you are a fool. Vic ain't no fool!
