    You don't need a mode to do this. You are in another car traveling at the same speed as the car you are shooting. Slow the shutter speed down to around 1/60 or even slower. In effect the car you are shooting is sitting still with everything around it moving. The 1/60 sec. should give you a sharp shot of the car and everything around it blurred.
    Happy shooting,

    Manual is always the best mode for everything.
