Taken today at the F1 testing at Silverstone. The first time I've seen F1 cars in the flesh, let alone photographed them.

This is my favourite shot from today.... can't wait to get back there tomorrow.

Nice shot, Emma. I was at Silverstone myself but did not shoot anything as good as this, mainly because of poor technique and a lot of posts in the way! Have fun with the rest of testing Smile

Superb image of an F1 car, up there with the best!
Try dropping the shutter speed down to 1/125 or even 1/60 sec. You will get more failed images, but when you get it right with panning, the image will show more movement.

As an ex F1 mechanic in the 1970's I know how difficult these are to photograph and deserve more votes on this site than they receive.
