Thanks for comments. The Speedway site requires about 400mm with a 1.6 crop sensor. There are two problems . First up is the way different aircraft turn in at variable points. You really need to be flexible with a car. The other problem is that sometimes alot use the left runway and are realistically too far away if small. (ok for heavies). Luck is needed!
