This was my first entry in a challenge and it was fun to watch my score. I'm not too surprised by the winners, and I appreciate all the comments made during the voting.

To Melethia; Yes that is his real name and he went on to win the Baltimore edition of the Indy Car series.

To o2bskating; I went on Friday which was during the practice laps, if you go when the event is being televised I suspect most of the best general admission areas will be blocked by adverts placed there for the television cameras. The last I heard there it is going to be held again this year and I definitely plan on going, perhaps upgrading from general admission though to get more access to the pit area and drivers

Nice pan. You've done a great job of leaving more than "normal" space ahead of the car for it to "move" into, which helps convey the concept of speed.

Good stop action. I can hear the roar, feel the wind.

He's a famous race car driver, yes? (I've seen an ad or something - and must ask, is that his real name?) I like that you can just make out people in the background.
