I like the two close-ups but the last one I'm not keen on. Probably me as I'd have preferred the background sharp and the car speed blurred.

Yes I like the first two too.   I'd like to see more of the car on the last one and more background blur.

Ditto the above, like the first 2 but I think No 1 has the edge, although possibly the background blur is lost due to the crop!
Failure is a privilege reserved only for those who try.

Hmm, see your reasoning Bob. As is, just looks like camera shake

True Moz.   The car is sharp but there's not enough of it to take the eye.

Maybe works better as a slightly tighter crop.

I saw loads of people with long lenses and I thought, yeah you're all just getting exactly the same shots. So I wanted to try something else.

This is the same location but a different car and a tighter crop. They're round about 1/40th of a second if I remember rightly.
