The interesting thing here is that they also fixed some video cameras and sensors on their cars (Corvettes and Cadillacs) so that people can follow the race on the site. You will be able to see the windshield view, the speed of the car, RPM of the engine, brake pressure, the location of the car on the circuit, the lateral acceleration on the pilot (not so easy to be a pilot) and during the night they'll use some infrared captors."
