No excuse not to have a camcorder. This one cost $10 on ebay, 80 deg fov 720x480 resolution, 30fps.
I have a couple of those I use for autocross... they're neat cause you can put them just about anywhere to film.. under the car, in the wheel well, tape it to a spoke on the wheel... etc...

problem is, the 10$ ones on ebay are factory rejects of ghost shift units, they are of definite inferior quality to the ones sold at retail closer to 70$. Mine all have the same issue in that they stop recording or can't write beyond a certain memory location on the memory card at random intervals.

I used it all day at this event and only got 1 video that was the proper length: 2011 MCO AutoX Jun 12 run 4 mini camera test - YouTube
when they work though, they're pretty good. hard to see something the size of a BB though.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
