What I do recommend to get the least vibration is to mount it on one of the front seats that has an occupant in it. The bigger the ratio of mass in the seat to the mass of the camera, the better (ie, you want someone in the seat it is mounted to and you want a lightweight camera). A camera with a low CG also helps.

If you are after lower vibration video, you need to step up to a bullet camera wrapped in foam on a rigid mount (roll bar or some other hard mount). Even then, I still have not seen vibration free.

The ultimate in low vibration is the equipment that the race broadcast companies have developed. And those are not for sale.
