Rallycross, image heavy

Its been a couple of years since I shot any motorsport, so when the chance came today, I jumped at it.
It was a very last minute thing, late afternoon, and there were only 2 shooting positions available to me, so apologies for the lack of variation.
I brought my K3ii + 16-85mm + 50-135mm, I was surprised to see that when i uploaded them that the only shots that made the cut were with the 16-85mm. None from the 50-135mm.
My panning at the start was horrendous, ICM at its worst. :groan: :groan:
Thankfully it improved before the end, shutter speeds varied from 1/60th to 1/180th

Nice set Derek, some good results there. Liking the minis where the drivers face can be seen.

As soon as I get below about 1/125 my keeper rate drops dramatically, (its not that great above to be fair )

Not bad Derek for a landscape loving, chess playing bugman.

Cheers Guys, George, I cant imagine what its like shooting the stuff you shoot at low shutter speeds, your lewis shot in the gallery is just savage.

Cheers Karlo, mmm I seem to be a jack of all but master of none

Awesome is the word I would use also.... Wonderful.. Speed shots really test a photographers technique... And these are spot on...

Never had a go at this, but pretty sure it's not at all easy... particularly like how the tyre dust mirrors the clouds in 1...
