All comments welcome
was it going full speed in that photo?
kinda wish all of the car was in the photo but i love the colors !
almost looks like your watching tv with that f1 thing in the top left
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.
i was thinking that ^^, only because getting a car going 100mph in focus is hard enough... have no idea what trying to get a f1 doing probably like 180ish is like... how fast do they go on straightaways?
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.
bump for more comments.
What camera and lens config for this shot?
That poor sod needs to get off the option tires
i want one!
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)
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!
guess no one is going to ask....How do you know Keith?
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.
