Sorry about that...didn't see this till now.
I put an eye bolt through the headrest mount adjacent to the camera, and attached the camera's hand-hold strap directly to it.
As far as the SCCA rules, this is all that's in the rule book (2010 rules):
3.3.3 Safety Inspections
B. Inspection Requirements
3) Any cameras, if installed, must be securely mounted to withstand loads from driving maneuvers. The camera may be installed either inside or on the outside of the car. In either case, its mounting meth-od and position must not interfere with driving or pose an additional hazard to driver, passenger, or course workers.
