Motor Madness
Posted By: KrisK10D, 05-01-2008, 05:42 AM

I haven't posted for a while. Not really had a chance to take pics being extremely busy or the weather being atrocious or just being crook as So here's some pics I took back in March













Hope you like these. All from Eastern Creek Raceway. They were some of the first I took with the K10D.

There all great - colors are terrific. #2 is particularly impressive - could go in a magazine.

The Holden-Ford duel makes me think of the Ford-Chevy rivalry here in the US.

Need to get out to EC and Oran Park to have a go at this.
I have been meaning to for some time ... but I hardly get the chance.

Don't be hate'n, Vision.... Lowndesy's my guy (and Skaife was blocking him )

Thanks everyone!

K10D... The first 3 are the Aust. Superbikes and the last 3 are V8 Supercar Series, with a new Mini category (never had them before).

Venturi... It took a while to get the panning right. I'd only had the camera for like 5 weeks so everything was still set on auto (and M ). Day was either sunshine bright or heavy cloud which was problematic. Was testing out the continuous focus too. It works best when you have the beep on. Timing is everything, secially with fast moving objects

Simon... if you wanna check out Oran Park you'd better do it this year. The land's being sold and there wont be anymore racing there after this season IIRC. I was going to go to the Super trucks there during holidays but my teacher gave us too much work to do Trucks will be back in August (I think) and I'll definitely be going to the V8's at the end of the year (it will be their last race there). I vaguely remember a Toyo Drift event coming up out there too.

I'm with Kim... #3 is my fav too

Don't worry Kristine ... There's a healthy Holden/Ford rivalry on the forum as well.
Actually it's more of a good group of like minded automotive enthusiasts who enjoy some decent motorsport shots.

I have to go ... i need to check Kyl3's motorsport calendar and see what is on and where.
