I have the gopole for chase and just standing to get shots without being that close to the person. One of the best things I got also was the painters pole from lowes or HD that expands and contracts 4 feet to 1 foot great to have in my back pack. It will take some time to get what you want out of the shots and how to point it, now editing that is whole different animal.
For chase cams just turn the head band mount backwards works great or have a mount on the rear of a helmet to clip in to. I have only really seen it done with the drift cameras.
