    freeze3kgt: my secret, well not really a secret anyway ; was at the corners, while the cars are slower, making my panning easier. at full speed, my skills are below par.

    on the straights, they are probably 200-280 km/h (sometimes more), I'm sure my shutter speed have to be 1/160s but I'll make the wheel look static, slower, I need steady hands. I should be using a monopod, perhaps next year. :lol:

    Here is a 1991 Benneton that is lots cheaper to buy and to run:

    Only $902,000 USD, a real bargain.

    1991 Benetton B191-5 "Schuhmacher┬┤s first F1 car!" Race Ready Spec Sheet

    Better still for about $16,000 new, just get a shifter kart:

    • 405lbs, w/driver (minimum racing weight)
    • 6 speed
    • 40 HP, water cooled, 125cc, 2 cycle, rotary valve induction Honda engine, running a mix of 108 octane racing gas and castor oil.
    • top end 130 mph
    • corner like you wouldn't believe.
    A properly set-up shifter can do: 0 mph - 100 mph - 0 mph in 10 seconds and can easily out accelerate and corner a Chevrolet Corvette Z06. Ask me how I know!

    I didn't really expect anyone to ask, because the answer is kind of self evident.

    Been there, done that.

    All of the guys in the Corvette club were super ticked their $75,000 Z06's couldn't even come close to out autocrossing our shifter karts.

    I only autocrossed the karts a couple of times. It's pretty boring compared to side-by-side, nose-to-tail kart racing.

    Not many people appreciate how quick racing karts are, even the 100 cc, 12 hp, single gear, centrificle clutched karts. On a long track the 100cc karts are hitting about 95 mph and corner just about as good as a shifter. They just don't get from corner to corner quite as quickly.

    Edit: I found a blurb on part of the reason shifter karting came to the US.
