Will, you might want to try a "Content Aware" delete of the background layer using the selection mask of the foreground car - This will greatly help in getting rid of the unnatural looking ghost blur of the original picture behind the Mercedes.

A more difficult trick to pull off would then also motion blurring the background through the Mercedes' windows.

It would depend what your shooting… for what I shoot, I use the center focal point that I keep on the helmet and between the eyes … but with the older bodies I shoot with, 30D and 5Dc, the center focal point is the best to pick… I also shoot spot metering.
If I shot with a newer body, say 5DIII, or “pro” body where the outer focal points were of some use, I would try picking an outer point, but would still keep that point between the eyes and still use spot metering… but that’s just me…

Sometimes prefocus is the best. If something [cars] are passing and the best view is kind of fixed prefocus can allow for compositions allowing more stuff out-of-focus is allowed comparing to when using AF. Then focus can be on the panning and not to keep something within the points (no pun intended :-)

I’ll use prefocus for a shot if I know what something will do in a certain location and I have only a very short…one second say…to capture as here coming into turn one off the short straight at Road Atlanta… Still use center point focus and spot metering and shutter priority… and between the eyes…

In your shot I would use a point/points too, as the bike is partly moving towards you and there are no obstacles. I am often stuck with prefocus as in this case where the lens is a Zeiss 100/2. As the cars appeared quickly around a corner with various shrubbery AF wouldnt do that good anyway.

Thanks. I've mostly used the center point and back button focus. Someone was telling me the other day they always use all focus points.
