I was talking to Brian Schatz of SpoolVideo.com this morning. He's in the video business, so I mentioned my idea for panoramic video recording. He sent me a link to Trackpass Raceview, a NASCAR production, where "... video gaming meets live racing." It's got to be one of the strangest things I've ever seen. I like going to races, but I go for the extreme auditory experience. There is just nothing like hearing a pack of high powered engines rushing by you at full song, especially if you've had a couple of brewskis. I know there are cars and drivers and teams and big crowds, but that don't really signify. NASCAR racing has become a big production with relentless commercialization and hero worship just like all other professional sporting events. But the sound! That is something you can't get anywhere else!
