Here are a few photos I took at the first round of D-rift in Ireland. They were taken with a Nikon D50 and a sigma 70-200mm F2.8. Let me know what ye think of them.

Welcome to the sports forum!! You are really getting the hang of the setup and the results look top notch!!!

Some of the shots do look a little flat so you might want to boost the contrast and possibly add a little saturation but apart from that they look good.

Looking forward to seeing more from you.

Thanks lads. It was my first time using the lens for drifting and the first time out on the track taking photos. I put up the contrast in two of them, and left the rest as shot.

Drifting is very big over here, two championships, lots of cars and not ordinary cars. The bmw has the 3.2 M3 evo engine in it from a newer 3 series. I will post up some more, had time to upload photos yet.

I was taking photos at the drifting on a different track once before, but my camera's mode dial was not working, so was stuck in auto. So has to use ISO to get try to get the shutter I wanted. Here is one with my old lens. 1/13s looks much better not compressed.
