As for the shutter speed, I was worried anything quicker than 1/30s wouldn't let me capture the motion. As it was only training the cars were driving around 50-70 km/h (barely 40 mp/h) max. I have to get some more training, roads and cars are plenty nowadays

Hi,

1/125 is enough to capture the motion when following a car at 70 km/h.

Remember that while panning, even at that shutter speed, it still will be a challenge to freeze the car. This one is 1/60 but the guy was running only at 10-15 km/h

My 2 cents

Regards
