Attaching a brand new GoPro to a Ferrari with a suction cup seemed like a good idea at the time. Unfortunately the top surface of the high powered supercar was carbon fibre and it was not perfectly smooth. After several miles, the suction cup failed and the camera tumbled off the back of the car. This happened soon after merging onto a busy freeway in Quebec. The driver of the Ferrari heard the camera bouncing off the rear window and he pulled over. Luckily, the car behind was a Rolls Royce, being driven by friends who spotted the camera on the highway and could tell what happened.

The camera continued to record as it rolled to a stop. It recorded the rescue and the relief of the owner who ran back to meet the friends who saved it. Dave jumped back in the Ferrari and checked on his camera to find that it had recorded everything. He's shocked to see that the camera survived and continued to function through all of this. Other than a few scuffs, the GoPro is as good as new.

    Tough GoPro!....I had a Panasonic VHS camcorder...early 90's. Climbed some rock to get a better view of a waterfall. As I was climbing back down, it slipped off of the strap and fell 5 feet and hit some rock. Except for a broken mount for the view finder, it was ok...got another 5 yrs out of it.
