    I can confirm that 1/8000 is great for motorsports up real close though it does mean using a fast film (sensor) and lens combo (f/2.8 ISO1600 1/6400 in the shade). Minolta even did a couple of 1/12000 models, e.g. the 9.

    I do prefer the panned slow-shutter approach (sharp vehicle, blurred background), though it has a much lower hit-rate and doesn't work with a rotating (pitching or rolling) vehicle and fails if they go over a bump at the wrong time.

    I use 1/8000 only for the occasional air show with the Minolta 8000i. A Thunderbird or Blue Angel passing show center at 500mph needs it.
    Before getting that camera 1/1000 and panning was the only option with mixed results.

    My Canon T90s go to 1/4000 sec, but since I shoot mainly portraits I rarely use any faster than 1/500 sec. except on very bright days.

    I find spark photography more useful than high shutter speeds.

    It's free if you already own the camera.

    Spark photography was used to make the first images of things like bullets in flight, complete with shockwave - but it doesn't work well when you want a picture of that Lotus drifting through a corner.
