you can record 4 sessions on the Gopro at 1080/30 wide, without recharging. I carry a 2nd battery for clubs that run 5 or 6 sessions per day

True but I don't even bother recording the 1st session or last just because I don't push as hard. Even though 1080p isn't necessary, I prefer the narrower field of view as opposed to the wider 179 degrees with the 720p. 60fps is nice but not really doing any editing/effects.

I should clarify, I have a GoPro2 which has different "wide" modes than the GoPro I was running last year. The "wide" setting at 1080p seems similar to the older narrow 720p setting, it's not the really wide 180 degree one (that distorts views). Either way, one battery is good for 4 sessions/1 typical track day.

It also depends how long the sessions are.

Mine lasts about 3-4 30 minute sessions.
