Another excellent capture Scott. Good feeling of motion and uncluttered background make this a cracker.

Looks like the Lotus MK1, great car, could never afford one back then, but stood and admired those that could.

Nice shot.

Great picture Scott, I remember being impressed by seeing Harold Wilson on the TV because he had what I thought was a fantastic car. (it was one of these but I don't know if it was red as TV was all black & white in those days!!!!).

You have a fine set of images in your P/F, well done.

Ron.

Good panning technique has resulted in an image with the feeling of movement, rather than the static shots we see so much of.
Would be improved if it was cropped top and bottom to remove the distractions at the edge of the frame
Well taken all the same.
I remember the days when Jimmy Clark and Graham Hill etc, used to race the Works Team Lotus Cars, on 3 wheels around most bends. They were a treat to watch

Those were the days; Lotus Cortina was one of my favourite cars of that era, and even the road version really shifted, well over the ton...Great piece of nostalgia for this ageing motorhead :o)
