Onboard lap of the Nurburgring with a gyro-camera

This new video put together by Bridgestone straps a gyroscopic camera to a Kawasaki ZX-10R and shows Bridgestone tyre tester Tim Röthig on a flying lap of the Nurburgring in Germany.

Gyroscopic cameras have been used in MotoGP for the past few months and manage to give a unique perpective of racing as the camera stays level no matter how far over the bike is leaning.

It takes a bit of getting used to and Rothig is clearly having to sit up quite high so he doesn’t get in the way of the camera but it’s a fascinating look at the fearsome Nurburgring on a fast bike in the hands of someone who knows the track intimately.
