Sorry, if I recall panning wasn't possible due to the speed of the bikes or lack of in AF's case ! Manual focus with the 35-200 wasn't really posible - though I might of pre-focussed if I'd thought about it, which is what I used to do back in film days
Thanks

Nicely done. Isn't it a giulia ? I wouldn't have imagined this thing can drift

Hi Remko,

I like this a lot - right place; right time and a great piece of stitching to give a very different version of 'overdone'. It's a very inventive image and shows the way a car can rotate around itself on such a corner.

The car is, correctly I think, an Alfa Romeo GTA or 'Junior' as it sometimes also called; a smaller engined version of the more popular Bertone designed GTV 1750/2000 version and homologated originally for racing. If you ever have a chance, see if you can find some images of these on events such as the Targa Florio or on race tracks 'cocking a wheel' - there is a great example here.

Thanks for sharing this and best regards, Neil.

@Neil; thanks for the nice comment.

@Fred_S; You were also at HGP. This was the Sunday in the Audi-S corner. Think a lot of amateur photographers were hugely disappointed with the new Grade 1 lay-out of Zandvoort (Forumula 1). This was the only decent place where you could take pictures without having huge fences in front of you. Next to that they flattened a lot of dunes in favor of parking spots. Think they killed the nice atmosphere and already scares photo opportunities, real shame. Looking forward to go to Spa again next year, heard they are even considering replacing some of the tarmac run-out areas again with gravel to be able to host 24hrs for motorbikes.

Hi Remko,

Well, disappointing to see that Zandvoort has joined the ranks of most tracks in the UK where 'Health and Safety' have taken over and reduced the capacity for enthusiastic amateurs to take decent images with the provision of acres of fencing in front of you.

When I visited Brands Hatch for the very first meeting this year I was disappointed to go out to the back of the circuit - where you had no fencing previously and there were some good opportunities to track cars in different positions in corners, coming towards you etc. - to find that pretty much 80% of the track out there is now covered in fencing with only small sections cut out for photographers (which get filled up very quickly). The blame, for Brands, lies at the feet of the DTM in fact - they will not race at tracks where there are risks to spectators lining the track should one of their cars go off (I suspect it's more a corporate insurance image thing but there you go..). However, Brands clearly feel it is justified as, at the Master Meeting later in the year, Steve Soper in a Lotus Cortina had his throttle stick open approaching one of the 'old' viewing spots - the subsequent accident had the car over the armco and would have been in the public area had it not been for the fencing....

I guess we have grown up in a era where this type of thing was accepted as being an occupational hazard ('Motorsports are dangerous' was a much used sign after all) but, in the current climate and, perhaps, with the increasing speed and energy of modern (and even hostorics) cars it is understandable. Ruins our fun though all the same....

Take care and, hopefully, looking forward to Zandvoort next year (and Turkey next weekend!).

Best regards, Neil.

Well, I guess it's the same everywhere, I was supposed to go to Canada F1 Grand Prix last summer but it was cancelled as you know.

In Montreal, the track is also covered/wrapped with fences, and some spots with 2 layers of fences. To get close to the inner fence, you must be an official sponsored photographer. The only possible solution is the stands and not the lower/closer seats. So you have to bring long lenses. I got a Tamron 150-600 so I thought I was ok but you must also deal with the stands always shaking !!! No easy photography there

The #6 Acura DPi from the 2020 Petit Le Mans this past October. I wish I had captured more motion here, but my hit rate with respect to focus spirals downward when I start dropping the shutter speed...

I've seen some panning work on this thread that is simply stunning. I'm hoping for more opportunities to work on my panning this year.

Nice set.... I'm amazed the Surtees still has B&O advertising. Team Surtees never got a penny if I may believe the stories.
Quit a lot of ALPHA and NEX gear, a nice collection of Sigma lenses, Dynax and M42 stuff, Gitzo's, Visico's and lots of video-equipment

What's more disturbing is I recall buying the Matchbox scale model kit as a teenager of this very car..... I always think this sums up 1970's F1 and F5000 cars in a complete package: shape, attitude, wheels and those big airboxes. The only other one that rivals it is the Hesketh 308 which James Hunt raised above expectations:

Hesketh 308B
