Remark Photographer
HB-IQH (cn 288) That's why I love a long lens! Too far away and too fast for your own eyes, you'd never be able to see this: The tire that's already made contact with terra firma is spinning like mad while on the front one you can clearly read the tire brand, it's amazing! Check it out, you'll like it I'm sure!
