I have my grandfather’s old Nikon FE with a 50mm f/1.4 which is the only thing remotely fast enough to shoot action, but my workhorse is a Nikon D500 with a 16-80mm f/2.8-4.0 and a 70-200mm f/4. Here are some of my panning shots from the COTA Indycar Testing Wednesday, most of these were 1/160-1/250

It’s the model. 7S26 is the movement number. This and the SKX009 (same watch but blue dial/blue and red bezel) have been around for a long time

These Seiko SKX007s are very popular in the watch collecting world. I had one on a steel bracelet for awhile. Mine ran a little fast as it’s one of Seiko’s cheaper automatic movements. I currently have one of the Seiko Presage Cocktail dress watches and its <-1 sec per day.

Liquid carnauba wax on a microfiber with some elbow grease to rub it off followed by a clay bar then a coat of wax. Have gotten rid of paint overspray and rub marks that way before

My aunt had a ‘91 Aztec Green 4 door Integra LS right about the time I got my license and my grandmother had a white ‘92 Vigor GS. I loved driving both of those cars

It’s generally been understood for a long time that not going single file through turn 2/the tunnel turn is unwise given the speed and angle of the turn, Bobby Allison’s near fatal NASCAR crash in 1988 is a prime example of this.
