not a fan of the 6th and 8th. Nice pan on the JD car (no 3) and good capture of movement on the 2nd. Not the easiest angle to get motion but a crisp image.

I love these cars!
Beautiful shot!


Your making me miss Australia as well. Do you have to be a pro to get close enough for these shots, or can anyone take photos?

As usual great shots. Still using the 400 with stacked 1.4Xs. If so what brand of 1.4Xs are you using.

They are all fantastic, but I love the impact that #6 and 8 give.

#1, #2 and #4 are the best of them but the all have a good sense of speed in them.

Thanks, No you don't have to be a pro to get close enough. These shots were all taken from behind the fence in the public area. Lenses used for these shots 400mm with & without 1.4x TC and 70-200mm with & without 1.4x TC.

Thanks Lionel, Yes still using the 400mm f5.6 With stacked TC's on some occasions. Use a Canon 1.4x & a Kenko Pro 1.4x.
Did not use stacked TC's on any of these pics just the 400mm with the Canon 1.4x on #1,4 & 5.

Hey T_O_M,

Not a bad shot amongst them.
Probably would have cropped/cloned out the upright of the overhead gantry in the Tander/Wall shot
Nothing much other than that to add.
