Hi,
You have shot an eye catching picture. Being on a race track where repetitive passes happen gives you the opportunity of testing various camera settings and shooting options. As it may not be cost effective to come back with picturs you may not like , I would suggest (since the cost of shooting digital is small) to practice various techniques as panning on races shown on TV first. Shutter speed priority has given you a static image that fails to convey motion. On the other hand the image is crisp. I wonder what results you could have using aperture priority of f/8.0 or f/5.6 if ISO and exposure compensation could be held or limited at the current settings. Despite it doesn't look like a bright day, a UV filter could have cut some reflection on the glass, it's pity we get to see the safety bars inside the cabin but not the driver. I also think that the car looks too big in the frame, and some more space could be allowed on the left but being in a race you expect more cars to be there so your framing might had been such as to solely observe this Honda. I must say you have got a capture that matches car colours and track-field colours, well noticed.

Nice shot Andrew
I think that pablophotographer has not a clue when it comes to motor sport, I have been shutting motor sport for 12 years and I always shoot in shutter priority
Its the only way to get the motion right
Its not that easy to do this with cars, when you have to pan through a fence Tongue
I think he should give it a go if he knows so much, I would love to see the results
