Cool pics! Surprised you were able to get so many keepers at such low shutter speeds.

I'm digging that notch Mustang.

I took over 975 pictures, I saved 250, and these are the only ones I bothered to post process and put online.

The first set is in the 1/100 to 1/150 range, I worked down to 1/40 as the day went on and I got better at it.

Here's the best I could do exactly one year ago:







Those were my three best shots, and the shutter was at 1/200 and I was unable to get many any lower than that. what a difference that shutter speed makes when you are able to capture it though, so worth it. Also the image server here kills the image quality (IQ) when the are uploaded and attached here...such a shame.

The Lotus 7 is the guy that bought my Green 2000 DD. It was there on track too, I hear i broke down a "few" times. Nobody knew why.

Lotus 7 driver name is Folis Jones, google him. He was a formula Atlantic champion in the 70's.

Well the orange miata is Brian Audets. I actually tuned it, and he run in V-Spec Mini, or something like that. He used to drive a Playboy series Spec Miata.

From the top I started at around 1/160, then the next few are 1/125, then 1/80. The lotus 7, white 135i, yellow Vette set near the end were at 1/40. It's incredibly difficult to get a good shot at that speed, but when you nail it, it was worth it.

The Lemons shots were just done at 1/2000, I was running out of battery and just wanted to get some good shots of the various cars.
