I'm going to Barbon Manor hill climb track tomorrow, I was wondering if any of you had any tips for getting some good shots. I was thinking of pairing my 40D with my 70-200mm and try some panning shots.
Thanks in advance for any help,

In general for motorsports photography, I've found that the best spot is at the end of a straight, where the cars are heading straight for you until they slow down and veer off around a corner (if that explanation makes sense). It gives you a few options as far as shots go and is typically where the action/heroics/crashes occur. The cars are typically going slower in the corners which might make panning shots easier.

I had a go at some panning shots and these were the best i got, they are not perfect but i think i know where i went wrong. I made the common mistake of too slower shutter speed. C+C welcome.

I think you did very good, keep practicing, panning is not easy.
Here are a couple of links.

Those are some good looking pictures! The longer shutter speed just makes it look like they're going faster :D

Very good results! Keep it up! Also try to get wider shots,to enhance your composition value. :)

Hi, love the pics. I was just wondering, are you thinking of going to Harewood Hillclimb next Sunday? I'm a little desperate for a lift...
