All in the Moment by Andrew-and-Seven All in the Moment by Andrew-and-Seven
Taken today at Druid's Hairpin at Brands Hatch, Kent during qualifying for the final round of the Bennetts British Superbikes Championship.

It's James Haydon on board the Hawk Kawasaki ZX-10R Superbike. The flaming is caused by unused petrol being dumped into the exhaust system and igniting when the throttle is released.

Oh yes, some bikes do a lot. Depends on the fuelling set up they have - it's caused by excess petrol being pushed into the engine when the rider has eased off on the 'gas' so the petrol goes down the exhaust and ignites on the hot metal.

I love the angle of this shot, the flames, and the vibrant color of the photo.

Seeing those riders drag knee is a thing of beauty.

Doesn't much look like Druid's but then I suppose not too many shooters use an angle like this. Which makes it a very nice shot compared to the boring norm. Well done for being different!

Oh I could have called you much worse, but then it wouldn't have served as much of a compliment, would it? =D
