In to week 2 of this final set of "old" monochrome shots.
I was heavily involved in motorcycle sport when I was younger and from 1968 to 1982 I commentated regularly at meetings at Snetterton Circuit in Norfolk, plus various Moto-X and Grass Track events and races at Brands Hatch and Silverstone. One of the main benefits of this was that I always had a pass to allow me anywhere on the circuits, so during the morning qualification sessions I could freely rove where only the Press and Marshalls were normally allowed to go, with my cameras.
I have got stacks of negatives and slides taken during this period from "trackside" viewpoints and this a collage of just five of them.
(All of the pictures in this series were taken on B&W.film, developed and printed by me, and sometimes entered into Club competitions. This is original monochrome work and the only digital bit is scanning the prints into Photoshop and preparing them for display here.)
