    . . . does this help?

    There must be plenty of information re. shooting racing/fast cars on the net Kathryn.

    It's not something I've gone in for in recent years. All my motor racing shots were done using film at motorcycle GPs and well before that as a drag racer.

    I've been to Silverstone on a race day. It depends on where the stewards allow you to stand, most places are behind 10ft high wire fencing which won't help your shots. If however you can get a press pass from the press office you have free reign. I got one on a bentley drivers day and I was in the pit lane, and got great locations beyond the armco barriers. Call the press office (number on the Silverstone website) and explain what you want to do. All I had to do was pay 10 deposit for the bib, then you just walk to the edge of the track and the stewards will open the gates and let you in, they were all really friendly when I did it. There is a good spot at the end of the main straight where they come right at you then spear left, good for some panning shots.

    As for the pics themselves pick where you want the first pic to be taken and focus on that point then wait for the car to enter your view then just fire off AMAP pics as you track the car across your field of view. I have hundreds of shots using this technique some better than others, just leave somewhere in the frame for the car to go into.

    Hope that helps!

    I'd also be interested in hearing how you go and tips or tricks you can share.

    Not quite silverstone bless her as she thought but she still had a blast. It was a small track in Stafford with a choice of Aston Martin, Lambo, Evo and a couple of others i don't remember. Weather was dull as it could get and darn cold. Give me animals anyday! Blush
