Just a few from this past weekend.

Second time taking panning shots so I'm still learning :)

you got your panning mostly down... now you need to zoom in more or get a bigger lens :)


Equipment: Canon PowerShot A650IS (semi retired) and Canon Powershot G10 (primary) and Rebel XT 350D w/18-55mm kit lens and Quanterey 18-200mm-- www.youtube.com/alexan​der1485 (external link) (has links to some of my pictures on the main page)

Yeah I used my 17-40 and 85mm lol.

Wasn't really equipped for panning but decided to try it anyway.

Wide angle panning with all those moving cars makes for a very interesting effect.

I love seeing the vintage racers. Thou someone's definition of "vintage" is different than mine.

I used to race with Rocky Mountain Vintage Racing (RMVR) campaigning a 1963 MG Midget with a 1275cc engine and Goodyear Eagle Racing slicks. It was a nasty little car and so, so much fun. I miss it...

I love your attempts at the Panning shots. Will they let you get closer to the track?

Was that the VARAC event? One of my customers was racing if it was but you haven't got him in any of the photos.

I think the earliest car I saw was from the 50s, but it didn't race.

No unfortunately they wouldn't let me get closer :(

I'm thinking of getting a 70-200 just for panning shots.

Yup the VARAC event at Mosport.

What car was your customer in?

I didn't take too many since I didn't stay that long for each race.

His car is rather unique. It's a 61 Daimler (British Daimler, not Mercedes) SP 250. Looks like this (same event but a few years ago.)

And is powered by a (correct for the car) Hemi V 8 with aftermarket injection,

That's a beautiful Damiler! I love those cars. Haven't scene one in a while. I used to work for a company here in Denver that delt with British Sports cars called "Scotland Yard."

The Brits loved to take a light wieght open top car and stuff a huge American V8 into it. I got to drive a Morgan Plus Eight once. That was scary! Lots of HP and no brakes on a wooden body frame.

At least at the time when I was in RMVR we allowed production cars up to '68 and open wheel/formula cars up to '72. Times have changed and it's been a few years since I was active in the club, so maybe RMVR has opened up the production and formula years some.

Did you take the time to walk through the pit area? Unlike regular events the VARAC group welcome anyone into the pits both to chat or take photos.

Re the Daimler he has that one plus enough spares to build another. I re did the body of his spare one plus manufactured a new frame starting just behind the front suspension area. Not counting the front suspension area the rest is very basic & was easier to build new rather than fix all the rust. The fiberglass bodies of both cars are about the worst quality I've worked on, with ten of thousands of air bubbles trapped in the resin. Add to that the fact the very old gel coat had broken down with age & it took a lot of work to get the body sanded & back to being worthy of priming & painting. I'll have to look tonight to see if I have any photos of it still on a hard drive.
My visit for the event was to be there for the Can Am reunion, & having attended the first Can Am event held there it was special. As it turned out the photo on the poster for the event was a real photo, (I thought it had been made in Photoshop or something similar) and I would have been somewhere in front of & a bit lower down at the moment it was taken because we were at the same spot for the parade lap.

Static photos from that event are here.

I walked around the pit area but I didn't take any pics.

Love the Lancia Delta :)

That M1's sound was incredible
