Great shots! I really liked the panning in the first and last shots, looks pretty nice, and the plane shot is great too, good job :)

PS: #2 is the safety car?

Not quite. It's one of the Porsche 991s driven by Jean-Karl Vernay in the Porsche Supercup Free Practice session. It happened to have my favourite livery.

The Mercedes SLS AMG is the safety car in the Grand Prix and all of the supporting races and you'll see it in the full gallery. :mrgreen:

Just went in and looked at all of your photos from the GP, it just seemed rather odd that the Porsche, if it had been the safety cat, was lacking the lights on top. I honestly don't pay much attention to safety cars when watching the GPs :P

Nice shots, I liked the gallery :)

Safety cats without lights are indeed rather odd :lol: sry, I just had to!

On a more serious note: Nice gallery :) Makes me want to see a GP in person again. Last time was Nürburgring 2009 when I'd just started out in the DSLR world
Some flappy mirrors and lots of glass
