Thanks, camera settings were MF (pre focus), AF Tracking is to slow to lock on. ISO 100, Shutter-Priority mode set to 1/100 sec. Used a Polarizing filter eliminate the reflections on the Perspex windscreens and to get the exposure down 2 stops (approx.) so I could use slower shutter speeds.

Top shots Tulli, surprised you used a pl, I wonder if that helped to saturate the colours, I am going to nit prick here and suggest you should have left a little more space in front of the cars otherise 100%.

Thanks, but I am not Tulli.
Used the Polarizer as I mentioned above to get the shutter speeds down and I did want to get a bluer sky and ocean in the background. So I think this contributed to the more saturated colours also shot in RAW and processed in SILKYPIX Developer Studio Pro 5.
I think the camera profile in Silkypix processing does a much better job with colours than the camera's jpeg engine.
