A 'Veteran' -- whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve -- is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to his country for an amount of 'up to, and including his life.'

Thanks guys.

That's the first time I've taken slightly more serious shots there.
Managed to trim 1000 down to 80. Bit of artistic post processing on a couple, like the blue wheel and spray.
If you're in to panning, I can tell you, it's chuffing hard at the speeds they're doing. I took quite a lot at 1/800th, which would be unheard of at 'road' speeds as you won't get that motion effect you're after. But the great thing with digital is you can experiment, fire off a stream as the car goes by and just keep the one that was half decent, in focus and didn't have a roof upright blocking your view!! Usually I'd shoot at 1/160th or so but I don't think I managed to get more than a couple that worked at that speed. Stepping it up to 1/200th or 1/400th greatly improved my hit rate.

There might have been some good shots of exploding tyres today.
