Born From Racing
At Toronto’s 1995 Chrysler/Mosport 500K, Scott Watkins was racing a factory-supported GTS-1 Oldsmobile Cutlass when he experienced a 140+ mph crash leaving several wrecked race cars, but no serious injuries. His recollection of the event was so dramatically different from the ESPN video replay that he shopped for a video camera mount for future crash documentation. There was nothing suitable in the marketplace, so he designed, patented and built the ideal mount. This mount became known as a CruiseCam.
In addition, Scott Watkins finished 11th in class driving the Chevrolet Camaro # (python) – Chevrolet V8 6000 cc (pictured right) in the SunBank 24 at Daytona International Speedway (USA) in 1991.
