Fairladys at Fuji
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Fairladys at Fuji
Fairladys at Fuji
1/125, f/5, ISO400, sharpened in PS.

This is one of my better panning attempts while at the Nismo Festival 2005 at Fuji Speedway. Unfortunately the day didn't offer much in the way of weather as it was sub zero degrees and snowed most of the day. But the 100's of rare Nissans that were on display made up for that :)

These are the Super GT500 Nissan Fairladys doing show laps with a number of historical GT cars.


Taken at Fuji Speedway, Yamanashi Prefecture, Japan.

Ah - this brings back great memories of our weekend racing attempts Chris - I am just pleased that we had good weather.
This is a great image and I love the angle you've presented them on too.

Really nice. Like the way they are positioned, and the rain. Makes me miss car racing. There isn't too much in Colorado
