    Grandstand - you can be seated but its freeseating, u can venture to the walkabt area. Entrance to grandstand guarded by securities to check on ur tix.

    Walkabt - As it said only confined to the walkabt area n public area, cant enter into grandstand

    may be the question sounds stupid but is ther any specific location for photo opportunities. I have never been the motor races before? Walkabout tickets mean u can walk by the side of the track behind barricade?

    Looks like the grandstand is at the exact same location as the Formula One first turn grandstand.
    I just bought my grandstand ticket today (free range seating), I was told you can also walkabout with a grandstand tic. FYI, they are 2-day pass.
    There's gallery pics on the official site, so that might give you a rough indication where we can take pics (i've never been before).

    So did any of you guys go last year?
    Did anyone bother taking tripod?
    Did you just stick to fast shutter speeds, or follow the motion of the car then click? (not sure if there's a technical term for that, but it gives a b/g motion blur effect).

    the bg blur is called panning. hope they don't put up the fence....

    Thanks for sharing. Hmm, maybe panning is a little difficult on the eyes given the cones and red/white/red/white barrier pattern.

    Thanks. I think I prefer the middle one the most, less distractions from the cones and alternating red/white barriers. Nicely captured though

    bro, noob here.

    how u manage to get the car sharp but background blur?

    panning was mentioned in this thread somewhere. does it mean u move ur lens to follow the car when shooting and hence cause motion blur to the background?

    Use continuous autofocus mode to track the vehicle while panning (move horizontally) your camera Rhenish take a shot. Practice with cars on regular roads.
