PFTrack Beginner

I am new to PFTrack and trying to matchmove a scene, but I am having trouble. It is not the typical pan-shot shown in tracking demos. It is of a motorcycle rider with the camera following from the front.

I canít show the footage but it is very similar to the shot at 1:48 of this video.

The difference with my footage though is that: it is at night so the contrast (value or edges) isnít that great or consistent and the headlights cause a glare that gets in the way of the tracker.

For the moment, I have been trying out the standard Auto Track method. Only 1/3 of the footage camera solves because that 1/3 is where the lighting and contrast gets better for the moment.

Any tips on how to approach this?

Thanks, Michael. At minimum though, how many trackers do you think I need at least to get a good camera solve?
