Default Car racing: Endurance at Zandvoort

Today was the final of the Dutch winter endurance challence at Zandvoort. A six hour race with different classes together on the track.

It looked to me as a great opportunity to make some pictures.

Very nice... Excellent shots... I also like the panning shots... and #7 could be out of a magazine...

I was hoping to go to the St. Petersburg Grand Prix (CART) but it was cancelled... Might go to Sebring in a couple of weeks though...

Keep up the good work and keep posting them here...

Great pictures. I'm looking to buy my first digital camera hoping to be able to get pics like those. I've about decided to get the Minolta A1, wish me luck.

Pan 5, 4, and 3 are outstanding examples of a great pan technique that you demonstrate in almost all shots posted. That day must have been pure fun!

Suggestion though, and this is purely technical: if you post a whole pile of photos keep them a bit smaller for us who don't have fast connections. I'm only suggesting this because I think that your stuff should be seen by as many people as possible and you may drive a few away if they need to wait for 5 minutes to see your wonderful work. Then, if someone with a slower connection wishes to show someone else your work they will probably need to wait again to show them because the download will need to be repeated. Your work is great and I hope you consider this next time around, perhaps making your photos smaller or adding more strings.
Thanks again for the great pans!
