It Looks like you have the panning technique under control.

Very nice photos, the cars are not bad either.

Thanks for the replies guys.

Personally, I am somewhat concerned about the harsh lighting. All these pics were taken between 11am and 3pm.

My goal is to shoot motorsports at around 6pm or later (day light savings time) to get some better light. But it seems like all the car club trackdays end at around 4pm, which still has the sun pretty high in the sky.

What are you're experiences with shooting sports mid-day? Do you have time preferences?

As with everything morning or evening light is less harsh but you are right most events finish pretty early in the evening so if you are looking for the best light then early morning is key. For me as I try to shoot different parts of a course throughout the day I try to get the best position depending on light but that's about it.
