Default Problem with focu

I have attached 3 images in this post with my "focus" problem. What I wanted to achieve is to get the whole car focused. What I have as a result is that just the front of the car is focused.

What should I adjust to solve this problem

The aperature varies from F10 to F11 in these shots. Should I use a smaller aperature then...

Maybe it has to do with your choice of shutterspeed (what was it?) and the combination of beeing close to the car.
The car moves different in relation to the camera when its closer to you. so by panning you move much faster. and the pictures were made in corners, or 3/4 front of the car, where the cars front and back move differentl.

i had the same problem at the nurburgring, was very close to the track, and had to use higher shutter speeds so that more of the car was sharp
setting was about 1/320

you see the car is reasonabelly sharp front to back, but the movement effect with slower shutter speeds is very little.

At Assen i used 1/100th shutter speed, but my pictures were more from the side of cars and were taken from a larger distance...

so maybe this is your problem

Shutterspeeds varied from 1/00 to 1/160. Though only a small part of the car is focused. I kinda like the effect it has. But I was just wondering how to solve this problem. I think the distance between me and the subject was the problem here....

The problem is not your focus Vu, it's just the motion of the car. Shorter shutterspeeds are the only way to get the complete car sharp when taking pics in this angle (freezeshot). With panning shots it's much easier because the car moves in one direction. In corners the car changes direction all the time.

One of my pics from yesterday, 1/250-f 6,3. Focused on the nose of the car, same problem with the back of the car
