Thanks very much for this - I followed your advice this morning - and used the suggested shutter speed of 1/1250 ...

1/1250 , F7.1, ISO 4500 @ 230 mm

I'm happy now I can stop the action in poor light. - As to the original images, I was pleased with them as well, as said above, the blur adds a bit of an impression of speed to the shots. Here's a few more from my original attempt.

Now all I need to do is convince the expenditure committee that I need a 2.8 70 - 200 !
