large 3plus black GoPro® Launches HERO3+®: A Smaller, Lighter Evolution of Best Selling Camera
GoPro announced the availability of its new HERO3+ line of cameras, featuring a 20% smaller and lighter design and 30% better battery life than previous models. These upgrades, combined with an improved lens and convenient new video capture modes, produce the most advanced and easy-to-use GoPro, yet. In addition, GoPro announced several new mounting accessories that further enable immersive content capture during any activity. The HERO3+ line of cameras and accessories are now available at GoPro.com and at select retailers worldwide.

GoPro is enabling people to capture and share life experiences in a way that was never before possible. Prior to GoPro, it was very difficult for anyone to capture content of themselves doing anything without having the help of someone else to film them. GoPro has enabled a new era of self-documentation whereby people can now easily wear or mount miniature ultra wide-angle GoPro cameras to record themselves doing just about anything, anywhere. The result is a surge of immersive user-generated and professional content made possible by the versatility and affordability of GoPro’s cameras and accessories. An average of three GoPro “tagged” videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute, and GoPro is used by the world’s leading production companies to help produce some of today’s most engaging film and television content.

In addition to being the best-selling camera globally in consumer markets*, GoPro’s HERO3 camera has also been the best-selling camera to professional production companies, on a volume basis. The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences recently awarded the HERO3 camera an Emmy for its contributions to filmmaking and television production.

“We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next,” remarks award winning producer, Mark Burnett.

“The HERO3+ illustrates GoPro’s commitment to innovation. We took the world’s best-selling ultra compact camera and made it better because we’re relentless in our pursuit of delivering the best possible user experience to our customers. We saw that we could make the HERO3+ significantly smaller and lighter while at the same time increasing battery life 30%. We saw the opportunity to design a sharper lens, so we did it–improving GoPro’s already highly regarded image quality. And we thought up exciting new features like SuperView, which enables the world’s most immersive wide-angle video. These are all features that we as passionate GoPro users want for ourselves, and we’re excited to share them with our customers around the world,” said Nicholas Woodman, Founder and CEO of GoPro.

Two-time Academy Award® winner Ron Howard teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award® nominee, writer Peter Morgan on RUSH, a spectacular big-screen re-creation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.

The epic action-drama stars Chris Hemsworth as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda, whose clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters, a distinction reflected in their private lives.

Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, RUSH portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed–handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent, Lauda. Taking us into their personal lives on and off the track, RUSH follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance, where there is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.

e7a37d9a172411e39fc422000aeb0ba2 7 RECAP: Skullcandy Team Nissan // Continental Sports Car Challenge
Thanks to everyone who came out to the Skullcandy Team Nissan Meet & Greet. Patricio Jourdain and Lara Tallman took on the best of the best from K1 Speed Santa Clara. Robert Nieves took 1st place as he smoked the competition at his home track.

Giving local Speed junkies an opportunity to race with Patricio Jourdain and members of the Skullcandy Team Nissan Continental Sports Car Challenge Grand Prix Team, K1 Speed Santa Clara’s thrill zone was elevated a notch on September 5.

Approximately two-dozen locals battled it out side-by-side, with some of the local ringers often besting Jourdain. The Mexico City native has competed in NASCAR Stock Cars, Formula Renault USA, Formula BMW Europe, Ford Trailer Truck series, touring cars, and Karts with a number of championships, and wins at varying levels and series.

During the event, in which multiple races were competed throughout the evening and Robert Nieves boasted the fastest lap time, a 22.826 mark, besting many of the track regulars such as Ed Duggan, Roddy Balanga and James Laeno – many who compete in the track’s Grand Prix racing series. Balanga was the series’ most recent winner and won a pair of tickets to the Continental Tire Sports Car festival, held at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca September 7-8.

In addition competing against professional racecar drivers, autographs and photo opportunities were available for guests. Jourdain and the Skullcandy Team Nissan Racing Team were in the area for the Sports Car festival at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. Featuring straight-from-the-showroom American muscle cars and the hottest imports, the GRAND-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge routinely features some of the largest fields anywhere in the world. – Robert Haugh (Santa Clara Weekly)

Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge:
“So unfortunately we didn’t finish the weekend as we wanted at Laguna Seca, although we finished the race, we ended up 21st out of 32 cars. My teammate Izzy did a great job at the beginning of the race and he gave me a good car overall for the remaining of the race. But once we putted new tires in the front the car lost balance and I had massive oversteer coming into the corners and at the end a combination of that and understeer coming out of them, so it was very hard to keep speed up, we had to be very gentle going through the corners. So LIME ROCK is next, we have our mind set on that and it ll be a much better race!” – Patricio Jourdain
