Hi Ben yeah it is mostly. Got a deal with the website I mention on the images, londonbikers.com, which gives me a media pass for BSB. We also get passes for WSB and MotoGP, to be honest any bike event world wide we can get to. I'm not always first in line for the more exotic races but usually I'm there :)

I suppose my target for this year is to reach above "quite good" then eh? ;) lol

That lighting couldn't been any more perfect if you tried (or did you - that a flash unit or the sun?!) I love the angle, the flame caught in shot, the bike up on a wheeley, the lighting and colours! Love it!

hehe it was the sun - late afternoon and it came through from right of shot, low and warm which picked out the riders as they crested the hill but not so much the background. They have rules about firing flashes at the riders on circuit..... ;)

Yeah it really helps the shot - it was taken late afternoon and the sun was low and very narrow. The metering got it right all by itself, don't think I did anything too clever :-s
