Racers from all facets of motorsports and alternative sports are turning towards helmet cams to show off their crazy antics on YouTube. GoPro has become a leader in offering these compact cameras and it looks like they’re coming out with a real affordable option to the masses.

Our favorite nerdy tech site, Engadget, has teased the public with GoPro’s upcoming HD Hero 960 camera that is supposed to retail for just $180. There aren’t many details but it’s anticipated to drop in the fall and we can safely assume that it’ll offer 960p resolution instead of 1080. But when it comes to showcasing videos on the Web or even on TV, 920p vs 1080p is no big deal. We can’t wait!

After his dominating World-Challenge GTS performance at Long Beach in the LPL/DRS Lotus Exige 240 S, Tyler McQuarrie sent us a highly entertaining GoPro HD helmet cam clip from qualifying. Check it out after the jump.

We also noticed our friends over at The Octane Report just posted a full story on McQuarrie’s glorious Long Beach weekend (although things didn’t go quite so well for him in Formula D), including an informative video with interview footage of McQuarrie prior to the race (available after the jump).

Rumors are also now swirling over on LotusTalk.com that McQuarrie and the LPL/DRS Exige S will make another appearance at the next World-Challenge event coming up on May 21st to 23rd at Mosport International Raceway near Toronto, Canada. The online chatter also suggests that LPL may have up to three Lotus Exige S’s running at Mosport, giving McQuarrie some teammates to work with at this fastest road course in North America.
