That is an awesome photo. I think it instantly becomes my favorite too. Wish I have the photo tech to be able to try and make more close up action shots like this. In the past, long distance dust trail shots, showing the long wakes and their turbulence, have been my best.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
