    Was driving by the speedway and noticed a track day was going on. Luckily I had my kit with me. C&C welcomed and appreciated.

    The one of the Ford GT is a very nice pan.

    What is "Track Day?" Is that when citizens can run their high power vehicles on the track?

    Sounds like a blast!

    Probably one of the best sets of panning images I've seen....

    I'm sure there are better, but for the time being.....

    Great shots

    Thanks, I shot both handheld and with a monopod. The Ford GT was handheld and the Lambo was on the monopod. Not positive on the bikes. I shot them both ways.

    Looks like the outside roadcourse. Outside the speedway that is. I've raced FF 2000 there a couple of times. Fun layout.

    Some shots from the 3/4 angle would have shown off the racing equipment a bit better, but would have tested the AF more.

    Yeah, it's much more difficult to get that sense of speed on the 3/4 as well.

    I personally like the Gallardo shot and the first motorcycle shot in your second set the best.
