Default Historic Sandown (with car fire shots)

Here are some of my pics from last Sunday at Historic Sandown.

A BMW had gone off into the gravel trap in front of me and sprayed dust everywhere caught the Torana airborne over the curb from the corner of my eye, quickly spun around and fired a few shots. The driver was Ok (Lindsay Woolward), the fire was put out quickly and there was not to much damage to the car, apparently some oil had been dropped on the track.
Of course had the wrong settings for these shots (was taking some slow shutter speed shots 1/60 sec) and had a huge cloud of dust. This is my best effort salvaging the shots in PS.

Nice set of shots "as always" great panning technique.
Did the driver make out without a harm?
I like the second shot as the car exit the corner.

Nice Falcon in front of two Mustangs...back blur gives sense of action...but also gives sense of two Mustangs falling over themselves to keep up with the Falcon.

They could well be passing the Falcon...anyway... nice action scene of vintage racers/

Nice car fire shots -- with fire stuff you never get a second chance to get the shot and you did well for the settings you were using when your eye caught these.

Nice shots... from the exif info they are at 1/30 speed. They give some good outcomes on most shots.
