Default V8 Supercars, Sandown

Have not been here for a while, moved into a new house recently. Have been busy with this, anyway pulled out the camera last Sunday went down to the local track and took some shots (its been a few months). Not much variety in the shots here all taken from the same spot.

V8 Supercars, Norton 360 Sandown Challenge

So who won? Jim Beam or Jack Daniels?

Nice shots, btw.

The last two look like you stopped down and got slow shutter speeds. Is that the effect you were after?

Yes thats the effect I was after: using a slow shutter speed, getting the front (or part of) the car sharp and the rest of the car with lots of motion blur.
I like this effect a lot especially when you get other cars coming into the corner in the background, it's like twice the motion blur because they are traveling in the opposite direction of your panning motion (like in the last shot).
