Here's some images from my track day yesterday. Got a ton, but here are the three I found most unique. Comments appreciated.

I cloned the numbers off the GTR, but the owner wants them left alone. So I left them on in his version and kept the one without for myself.

Good pans, and good composition.
But #2 is pretty mundane in that the angle of the light is poor and there is less of the track, as far as background, in the shot to add to a sense of speed.

Yeah, it's in a particularly terrible direction, but it's the best spot on the track to pan. That's not saying much. It's a nice facility, but not the most photogenic track. Not like Road America.

The couple of times I raced my shifter kart there I really enjoyed the part of the track from turn one to the exit of turn 3.

I think that's where the first shot was taken. I'm not very familiar with the track since I've been there all of once, but it looks like a great place for newer race drivers.

That first shot it looks like you're near the turn-in for turn 5 looking back at what they call turn 3D, a kink between the exit of 3 and the turn-in to 4.
If that's the right place there was an infield access road to your right and behind you.

There was an infield road, but nothing crossing the track at that point.

Yep. It's just access to the infield from the track so it only joins the track on the side you were on.

Yup, that's the spot. About the only really decent vantage point for panning.

Took the liberty of removing the numbers and cone for my own purposes.
