Thanks for all the comments. I knew the day would be bright and taking an f2.8 might be problematic with light and stuff, but I wanted to try and get some good background blur because there would be the crowd of people on the other side. Rarely did I get what I want, that 3D effect, but a few snuck in like this one...

Someone asked how the EVF was in tracking and I have to say that I did not use it too much because what would happen is that no matter how much I prepared myself, when the Nitro dragsters took off, it kept scaring the crap outta me and my hand would shake, the vibrations from the cars would blur my vision and so i just looked over the eye-piece and held down the button, shoot away and hope I'd get something. Also I had to try and not hit the girl's head in front of me with the 70-200... So a lot of shots were either before they passed me or afterwards.

I got a few shots in front of me...
