Shooting Motorcross with DVX100B ??

im shooting motorcross & Freestyle Motorcross with my dvx100b - what whould be some good setting for this type of filming ....I do alot of afternoon with good lighting and also night...

I want to know about 60i vs 24 and shutter speed whats faster and slower and how would it effect the film.....are there any other modes other the 60i that will work.

I want hot colors nice a vibrant

I know how to use the cam ( not a pro by all means ) but im tring to get that ESPN, Fuel, Speed channel look.


Any help!!!!!

Thanks
Cabrera

FWIW, I did a shoot for the group associated with the "Pinks" crew. They supplied DVX100's for me to use. And they had the cameras set on 24p mode, 16 x 9.

Randy, I guess I should have said it but we were shooting a pilot for SpeedTV and it included shooting cars and motorcycles at really high speeds (200 mph). I would have thought that the 24p would have been less than ideal for the situation. but I did see the footage aired and it had none of the strobing / stuttering motion artifacts that would normally be associated with 24p. Of course, I had nothing to do with any of the editing process or air process so I have no idea how they handled the footage that we shot.
