Due to the type of racing (solo II; lots of turns and not a lot of straight sections) it is really difficult to get a sense of speed in the photos; they end up looking like a mess.
I can appreciate where you are coming from here.
P.S. feel free to play around with the crop on #3 if you want
LOL, thanks. I think it was just me. Looking at it today it seems fine & after a couple of minutes playing I can see the cones definitely need the space to breathe - especially with the leading lines to the building.
