Freat backgrouns without the usual bollards and spectators! The panning is good, and would be even better if the shutter speed was slightly slower. The ideal is to have the subject sharp but plenty of movement in the wheels and the background.

Perfect placement in the frame.
Best regards, John

Great shot Tim, I think your capture is extremely well timed, my guess is that he is exiting a corner, rolling on the power whilst trying to sit the bike up for maximum traction. You've caught the action perfectly.
Well done
Regards Huw

It`s a good one! for me you have just the right amount of blur for the background and rear tyre. Excellent

Enjoy life

This was my first attempt at motorsport and at this point in the track the bikes were absolutely flying (the straight before Druids at Oulton park) - I have some great shots of a completely blank track with no sign of a bike to prove this - I panned them from a distance and then took a single shot when they reached a pre-determined point. Hence I was able to choose my background.

There is some movement in the wheels/background, but next time I shall try and increase this by reducing the shutter speed.
