not referring to F1 speed, but cars on Singapore roads, etc.

Pan and shoot.

This is just abt the only suggestion u'll get for shooting vehicles in motion unless u are talking abt setting up multiple cameras with motion sensor detection.

1) Wear a white shirt and blue pants and a blue cap
2) Bring along a tripod
3) Stand at any of the overhead bridge along expressway
4) Start shooting

You can see cars start to slow down for you to shoot...:bsmilie: :bsmilie: :bsmilie:
You may get some special effects also, when you see drivers e-brake and the one who tailgate behind come kissing on their backs..

think start off with 1/30. If you've practised hard enough / good in this, try 1/15 or 1/8 to get a better blur

Use wide angle like 35mm and stand close to the road. Shutter speed from 1/10sec to 1/30sec is good for panning :)

I've found that generally the inverse of your focal length is a good yardstick for setting your shutter speed to begin with. That is assuming you will be filling the frame with your subject.

Eg. if you have a 300mm lens, start at around 1/250s and work down. If AF cannot cope with the rapidly changing subject, then prefocus before tracking and firing.

Panning is a physical process that requires you to swing your body through an arc while tracking the subject steadily in the viewfinder.

After knowing the settings, just remains to practice, and keep practicing.

How powerful are the rotary engines i dunno... Maybe 450bhp to 550bhp? It's amazing that the 1300cc twin rotary engine can be tuned to this level...
