Driftin', Liftin', Swiftin', coastin'

Drifting is a high powered motorsport that requires highly practised drivers to control a 200 to 600hp car while it slides sideways at high speed through a closed, marked course. It is judged on execution and style without bumping or crashing. It has been around for some time now and provides some nail biting, thrilling moments in motorsports. This image was taken last year at the Formula Drift 2010 held in Singapore. I was trying panned shots but could not really anticipate the movement of the car and time the shutter speed accordingly when all the action is over in a flash. This is one of the better images. Too bad though, I couldn't get all of the car in and the cones got in as well.

Fabulous sense of movement and the colors rock!
A great capture Ayush with a great feel of movement in the image. Well done.
It is a good shot Ayush, motor sports work is very difficult, I have done hundreds over the years and there is a great failure rate sadly.
Looks pretty good to me, not an easy thing to get perfect
Ayush Basu: You are too kind Martin
excellent, love the action!
What a superb action shot, the blur really gives a sense of movement and speed!
It is a fair effort Ayush, all comes down to practice...like the drivingsmile
Ayush Basu: You are bang on right about the practice, Bill

Super dynamic. The yarn is excellent! Bravo.
Ayush Basu: Thanks a bunch
Very cool capture! Well done!
I like it - a great take on a motorsport we don't see much of in Aus.
