    Went to a brand new track that had an open day today, thought it would be a good chance to get a couple of pics (and have a crack at trying out panning for the first time) and have a cane around myself, sadly the track was too wet for me too waste that much money and not be able to go WOT.

    The marketing manager spied me taking shots trackside so I may pick up some work possibly going by the conversation we had, so I will be back.

    Heres a couple of preliminary shots Ive done so far...

    They came out pretty good.

    It looks like they were rental karts, and not the faster, full blown racing karts.

    Shot 1 is the best, good panning just a bit too tight

    Nice set on Flickr. They all are very good. Only one suggestion, try and move around the track if possible, getting too many shots from the same vantage point gets boring.

    #3 would be my pick, seems to capture the days story very well.

    Thanks gsgary, I did worry those were a little too tight, I do have some not so tight.

    Yep 1-3 were rental carts, 390cc Sodi Karts $67 for 10 mins!! 4 is a proper Kart, but they only did one race while we were there, the difference in cornering speed was insane.

    Thanks Bitter. :)

    Yeah the wet track worked out well, lol, I shot in RAW, just had to manage my burst shooting carefully, lol.
