There is an upcoming Drift Event at a local track this upcoming week. I will be using my Rebel T3i with a Tamron 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 lens. I have gained access to shoot on the track. Was wondering what settings you would suggest.

At the track I usually keep the camera in Tv or manual mode with the shutter speed anywhere from 1/100 to 1/160 (maybe slower depending on the speed of the cars and if I didn't have too much coffee that morning). I meter off the sunlit grass in Tv mode and check where it's putting my aperture. I don't like shooting at really small apertures so on bright days I typically have a CPL filter on the lens to help get slower exposures. Then if the light seems like it will be pretty consistent I switch over to manual mode (makes post-processing easier when my exposures aren't changing too much). Check the histogram as you start shooting and tweak as necessary.

Drifting images can benefit from a slow shutter speed.
