The Ray Rig was conceptualised by filmmaker Chris Ray, and provides a fast and easy way to rig up a vehicle for tracking shots.

Mounting a cinema camera package with a full-size gimbal to a car typically requires a lot of rigging with speed rail or suction cups with safety tethers. The Ray Rig connects to a vehicle hitch and provides a Mitchell mount where you can place a vibration isolator like the Kessler Killshock, ready for your cinema package.
