    sorry... i've never shot fast moving vehicle so my advice is general....

    if I were trying this I would be playing with shutter priority... experimenting with fast speeds to freeze action and slower speeds to create blur...

    I would be careful the autofocus isn't wasting time hunting because you will be panning and the car will be moving.... if you get hunting, try switching to manual focus...

    for shots were the car isn't occupying the full frame I would be trying to leave open space in front of the car....

    good luck!
