Nice set. You're shooting way wide open in harsh light. :)

There's no right or wrong. It all depends what you're looking for on your images. I saw the highlights blown out on the wipe open shots. The others looks fine on your Flickr. I usually use a CPL for this kind of shooting. It removes all reflections from paint and car glass/windows. :D

What is a CPL? i'm pretty new at this and still in the learning phase so any suggestion or tips you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

It's a Circular Polarizer Filter. It's job is to remove reflections and give you more contrast on colors and sky. (Doesn't work at night). Also an ND filter is really helpful so you can use lower shutter speeds in mid day light for those action/blur shots. What the ND (Neutral Density) filter does is reduce the light coming through the lens/sensor. This allows you to use lower shutter speeds or bigger apertures during midday or back-lit situations. Some ND's can reduce light 10 F-Stops. They can be pricey tho. :D

While a CPL can be an advantage in static car shots, it can also produce some odd and distracting patterns in the windows. Auto glass will often have a plastic film sandwiched between the layers of glass for safety reasons. Typically, race cars use polycarbonate or acrylic (plastic) in place of glass. A CPL will often cause these patterns to be seen. This results from the stresses in the plastic, especially in the curved sections.

After many years shooting motorsports action, I choose to not use CPL's. Since they need to be adjusted depending on the position of the sun in relation to your shot, following a moving race car through a series of turns or even on a straight will not only potentially cause the odd patterns in the windows, but can cause the sky to look unrealistic by darkening one portion while the other is lighter. YMMV

Do they let all the Ferrari owners on the track at these races? When I went to Ferrari challenge races at Willow Springs they let anyone who had a Ferrari go out on the track, it was pretty pathetic how slowly some of them drove. The real races were fine.

Yes, at the end of the day they let Ferrari owners out on the track. They had two different groups, one who wants to go fast and one who just want to cruise. I was driving a 458 Speciale and ended up passing 7 cars before I got flagged and they made me pit. sucks!! :)

I use a circular polarized filter for my landscape photography. Why is it called a CPL? Wouldn’t it be a CPF? What does CPL stand for?
