Sigma 300mm f/4 + TC or Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3 ?

I need a superzoom with a reach of at least 400mm , for shooting motorbikes on circuit.

I've seen some pretty decent pictures taken with the Sigma 150-500mm at 500mm but i'm wondering if a Sigma 100-300mm f/4 with a TC wouldn't give me a better result ?

Look at these when i see that, i'm trying to tell myself that this is just what i need for exactly the same kind of pictures

I have a Bigma (non OS) and I have wondered about the 100-300+tc combo however, it would cost more $$ to switch and I am really pretty pleased with the Bigma's IQ. I think that the IQ of the 150-500 is similar to the Bigma. B&H has the 150-500mm for $999 which is not too bad considering it is OS and HSM too. The Bigma has neither.
