    That looks great. It appears that as the film is moving with the cars, the actual background is the same narrow vertical image along the full length of the film.

    There are some pretty cool images in the photographer's gallery, here:

    Use the arrows, and go to page 2. The rollerblade dance is very nice!
    Using film since before it was hip.

    I like the funhouse-mirror street scenes. A pretty creative use of the equipment.

    Many years ago (1978 if I recall correctly) I was working as an assistant to a Sports Illustrated photographer (Heinz Kluetmeier) at a horse race at Belmont in NYC and used a similar set up with a Nikon to shoot the horses crossing the finish line.

    Very interesting images in the gallery, but the apparent inconstancy in the film transport motor would drive me crazy! Better with the dark tracks. You can see the vertical lines throughout the photographs.

    Nothing new here, these photo finish cameras have been used since the 1930s on numerous horse racing tracks worldwide. Check this link:
