Alan, some nice shots there, the Lotus tail-end is a good one. A tip if you don't object. Avoid the tilt and slant please. They were thought of as arty a few years back, but now unless CC has re-built the circuit on one a hell of a slope, keep them level. Not the done thing these days.

I'm going to find myself agreeing with Ken, here. The Lotus shot is nice, I like the low angle.

I too, am no fan of the tilting car shot. I don't know where the fashion for it came from but it doesn't work for me. I can't think of any other sports that regularly send their participants "mountain climbing" either. Strange.

Nice shots Alan
Have you tried looking at the first shot at 100%? The reflection in the drivers visor could make an interesting image ...

I have to admit to adding the odd tilt to some of my shots, but I do try to use it sparingly.
