What I see most commonly at events is using a suction cup to attach it to the driver side rear window (rear door). This lets you see ahead to get a general feel for the course, but also captures your head, hands, and steering wheel for analysis and education.

If you are just looking to make cool videos, you can put it behind a front wheel so you capture the wheel angle, tire flex and roll, and likely some proximity to cones. Passenger side is likely better for this as you can also use it as an educational tool. When you think you're right on top of a cone and the video shows you're 2 feet away, you know you can get closer. On top of the roof gives you the best overall view. Up high allows you to see further ahead when watching the video, so the course is a little less of a sea of cones.

Wherever you put it be sure it's above cone height so you don't lose it when you hit one.
