Walker in Druids by Andrew-and-Seven Walker in Druids by Andrew-and-Seven
Ok another bike shot, and about time some would (and have) said hehe.

So it's the final round at Brands Hatch in Kent. Chris Walker, a crowd favourite, chases down Chris Buckingham in the Druids hairpin and as usual grinds away another few mm of footpeg.

I still can't believe mere physics theory keeps all that weight and power on the tarmac through a contact patch the size of a playing card.

stunning colours and what action. The chasers knee really does appear to be touching the ground. I love the sparks in the shot!

nice saturation, the bouncy look that the wheels have (because of the blur i assume) is amusing.

i suppose this is what happens when you start shooting at the most photographed bit of asphalt in the world, you go crazy and start thinking about physics :)
