XT2 Auto Focus Tracking at Moto Cross event...............Wow

I went to the Moto cross event today as I wanted to try the AFC tracking on the XT2 with both the 100-400 and the 16-55 and I used the following settings:

ISO = Auto
Zone Focus = 9 central spots then wide tracking
AFC category = I used setting 4 (subject suddenly appears)
100 - 400 set to f8 and 1/2000 sec
The above were for most of the images but used f5.6 with the 16-55mm

I am thrilled with the performance and it more than lived up to all my expectations and the only focus fails were down to operator headspace!

These are just a few of the images

Thanks Kyle, it is the first time I have used the wide tracking but found it perfect for subjects that suddenly appeared, the focus locked on quickly and accurately so did exactly what I hoped.

The Zone focus (I used 9 spots) was perfect for the first images of rides leaping the jump from a distance with the long lens and again even with the 100-400 locked on quickly for bikes moving at speed and suddenly appearing in the air.
