If the viewing location is restricted, you can still use the race to experiment/practice with your car shots so that when you do get a better track location, you will be more experienced.

You couldn't pan? Were you shooting between the links? Pretty good job considering. The shot does look a little warm overall, probably due to it being at night and lit by lamps. Try cooling it a bit. Use the white wheel rims as your guide. Try adjusting histogram levels too so that the blacks look blacker and the whites whiter.

Panning wouldn't help this shot. Having have the wheels missing, and the other cars cut off half way kills this shot and I don't see any way of creating something really compelling out of it. The exposure looks foot, post processing looks fine, but the subject just isn't there... in my opinion.

Sorry : (

Its by knowing and mastering all the rules that you learn which ones you can break.

I wasn't able to pan because of the fence so i had to shoot through the squares and the lighting wasn't the best and i didn't have a flash
