    Default Street Races

    One of the few remaining annual street races in a small country town, Paeroa, New Zealand. 240km/hr down the short main street with a bend in the middle, netting each side and somehow it survives the goody two shoes state.
    I used the E-M1 and 150mmf2.8 Pro mostly. Not as pleasant to use as the Canon 1D3 and 70-200mm, but the images were very similar with both sustems. C-AF, normal middle focus spot usually.

    The pace car is a "Holden", which is made by General Motors Holden. In Europe, it would be called an Opel, in the UK a Vauxhall and in the USA a Chevrolet.

    We were concerned about the wire mesh at the bottom sticking out. Passengers helmets were missing it by mm.
