You might want to post your settings and some other shots to give us an idea of what the environment was like..

A few things
- You need to do a manual focus (at least for digicams)
- You need to follow through
- You need to choose a spot and snap only at that spot

Yes... 1/6 is definitely too slow..
As a general rule of thumb...

1/15s for Trishaw
1/30s for Bicycle
1/60s for Normal Vehicles
1/100s - 1/125 sec for Speeding Vehicles

If the shutter speed is too slow, then it's difficult to have a sharp image of the moving subject, too fast then everything is too sharp. Take a shot, preview it and adjust shutter speed if you are not sure.

So you must SNAP while panning??

It's also important to follow through the panning motion after you snap and not just stop abruptly after you hit the shutter.
