At this year's Rolex 24 at Daytona, Brumos Racing driver Leh Keen wore a camera strapped to his chest. But he didn't just wear it for the race, he wore it for the entire event, from the plane ride in to the post-race press conference.

Brumos Racing won last year's GT championship and it started off this year by taking third in the #59 Brumos Porsche 911 GT3 at Daytona. One of Keen's co-drivers was Hurley Haywood, who helped win the same race for the same team in 1973 and 1975. Short of smelling the petrol and wiping the champagne off your face, the ensuing video, produced by Porsche, is a terrific example of what it's like being in the driver's seat for a 24-hour endurance race. Check it out after the jump.

      good vid--it does give you some feel for the race--it would be cool to see some other races from this perspective

      I don't care how realistic computer games get with racing, you cannot simulate having to adjust your side mirror at 150+ mph and being on the radio and jumping in/out of a car.

        It's a test of racing endurance and automotive engineering. Especially the P1 cars that are constantly testing equipment that might trickle down into our everyday passenger vehicles. Also it's a great for spectators. Being able to camp in the infield while cooking food at a fire pit and watching cars race by you 24 hours is the best feeling ever.

        You must be joking. If you don't understand how endurance races relate to the automotive world, just GTFO.

        I moved with his head so, I'd guess somewhere on his head.
