Default Superzoom $300-$400

Hey guys,

My sister wants a new camera mainly to be used for photographing motorcycle races. She'll need a superzoom for getting high quality pictures from far away. What do you guys think would be a good camera between $300 and $400 for these types of action shots? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

FZ40 would be a great camera for this also...

just that the FZ100 can take many shots in 1 second...11-12...it can take 5 photos readjusting AF each shot in burst mode...it was made for these types of photography in mind...the video is also excellent on the FZ100...

The SX30 I am afraid would be so slow you would miss too many shots...
