Oh man, really? I am retarded. I was with my dad and nephew. We were checking out different corners, and it sounds like you saw me at turn 6-ish? I think that when I tried taking a few pics and video with my phone unsuccessfully.

FU Gary those look great. I need that 300mm next time.

Hows you're ratio? I'm hitting about 1/20-30 acceptable focus.

Not too bad so far, about 200 images in and 59 marked to delete, though I have a lot so far with too high of a shutter speed where the cars just look frozen. I think I realized that after awhile and started shooting differently.

Biggest thing I learned from looking so far is on my camera the AF is so slow I need to set it to about 15 ft in front of the hood to get most of it in focus.

Between 1/125-1/250 was good for non panning. 1/25th was sweet for panning if I hit it dead on (which not many did).

I think I need to buy a different body if I plan on shooting this stuff more. Trade in my T2i for a 7D or something with better AF/fps rate. The 1.6x crop factor would help extend the range of my lenses a bit too.

Sweet pictures gary.

So, noticed some 90s vw cruising next to me on roosevelt and look and see two teenagers giving me the thumbs up, so I smile and nod. We had a light coming up and a clear lane on the other side of them so I got on the breaks to get behind them and into the clear lane so I could open it up for them. As I come around their tail end, one of their fucking hub caps come off and bouncing right at me and to swerve to avoid it. Fucking tricky kids.

I'd have to say the best sounding GT car(s) during the race were the 458's... man.
