The SS used was too fast for all of these, while not awful they could definitely be better. I'd get under 1/80th, and after some experience youll be able to get under 1/50th then the images will really start to pop.

True for some shots, but in my experience shooting fast moving cars at less than 1/100th when they are going around corners and riding the kerbs mostly results in shots where only a very small part of the car is sharp. Whilst the results can be fantastic, they are a bit of an acquired taste and the keeper rate can be very low

This one was taken at about 1/100th, and only the area from the brake caliper (can read Porsche at 100%) to the latter part of the word coachworks on the sill is sharp.

Chrome wraps on cars can play havoc with the WB and autofocus :D

For side on panning shots, I normally stick to around 1/80th - 1/160th which I find gives a good compromise between pleasing shots with a blurred background, and enough usable shots to keep the customers happy.

This is another from the same race meeting at 1/160th. I did try lower shutter speeds, but the far side of the car rising and falling as it went over the kerbs resulted in the sides of the car being a bit soft for my liking :(

Lovely set superb colours and shutter speeds are fine no point shooting super low for a head on shot i can understand for pans once you have some keepers as you can get the odd beauty of a shot

There's no other way to put these except for: "Clean".

Great captures, love the last one you posted on 2 wheels!

Only thing i could say, is try some slower shutter speeds for different effects :)
