A little faster will give you more definition on the spokes, but a little slower will make the car look like it's going super fast. I'm usually pretty far out the passenger side window when taking these shots, but I've also gotten pretty damn low as well. I took this hanging out the side of our family's minivan
I can attest to this too event if you're standing still, 1/60th is a great place to start to create a feeling of emotion! especially with panning.. I'd love to see more auto-x photographers try to capture the feel of speed rather than the quality and detail of still photography..

Armin you're on a roll
