So I havent shot any motorsports in 2+ years... 2020 because of covid shutdowns, 2021 because of rain and prior commitments.

Man was I rusty. I felt like I was doing it all for the first time. I just didnt feel like I had the technique, creativity, confidence, etc. It was pretty rough, I left pretty disappointed and felt like I didnt get a single decent shot. I was also using a EM1iii for the first time so there's that learning curve to deal with.

I tweaked my back pretty bad 2 days prior, but it's been so long I just forced myself to go.

Looking at the pictures I feel like I could have done so much better. I wish I used my plastic fantastic 40-150 for a while. I like some of the far out shots, but wish I got some tighter frames aswell.

I regret using HHHR. I know better... I know you get weird artifacts when there's any movement but was an idiot and still used it. I'll post the shots but I'm kicking myself pretty hard about it. But my biggest regret was not taking more shots of the CLK GTR (also used hhhr lol). I wish I used my tripod with a 10 stop filter to get ride of people from the shot. Or just a regular old shot atleast. Owell.

I'd love to hear any critique, criticism, etc etc.

I'd say those are pretty good!

Question about shooting through the trees: Did you use manual prefocus, or did the camera's tracking keep a lock through the foreground foliage?
