Another brilliant shot Brian! I can almost hear the whining of the engine. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances. You've upset Ray, this is what he said smile [Frances...Superbikes do not whine...they purr, roar or scream, depending on what they are being asked to do] He's right of course but I'm sure we won't fall out over it smile

Quite crisp, Brian...you have not lost your touch.

[Frances...Superbikes do not whine...they purr, roar or scream, depending on what they are being asked to do]
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray. I have passed your message on to Frances, in the nicest possible way.
Once again - terrific image - I just can't imagine they can't use your images!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. At any one race meeting there will be thousands of pictures taken, particularly by the professional photographers working for newspapers and magazines, and of course they are "trackside" not in the public viewing areas, I'm just happy that quite a few of you good folks are looking at this series and enjoying them, it is far from being everyone's cup of tea, especially you ladies. I think you will enjoy my new series starting next Monday though, it might conjure up a few memories of months gone by, further than that my lips are sealed smile

He looks like he's going very fast
Brian Walbey: It is quite a fast point on the circuit although by far from being the quickest, but about the only place without wretched safety fencing in the way!
very good timing with his leaning in the curve
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, I would really liked to have been on the inside of the corner so he was leaning towards me but that isn't a public area unfortunately.

Belle capture !
pour les amateurs...
comme mes fils smile

Bonne journée Brian
amicalement
Brian Walbey: Thanks Emma. Glad to hear your son enjoys this fine sport, my son watches it on television but prefers to go fishing for his outdoor activities.

I like the knee pads on the outside of the knees. I bet this noisy!
Brian Walbey: The noise of these bikes is great Alan, assuming one likes that kind of thing, and these days, with excellent handling and slick tyres those knee pads are very much used by the top riders, it is unbelievable how far they lay the bikes over.
I can feel the speed in this one,Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes this is a better angle and Chris Walker's position on the bike is one of "getting down to it."

You caught this just before it fell over Brian.
Brian Walbey: Not at this shallow angle Chad, these days the top riders can really lay the bikes over a long way, hence the knee pads Alan mentioned.
Great capture with the shadow play Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. The shadow adds to it, lucky to be in the right place for the sun.
These speedy guys really are amazing. Great shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Janet, these bikes are very fast, up to 200mph., and must take a lot of skill to ride to the ultimate, more than I've ever had.
Classic Bike shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, this has a bit more feel of action than yesterdays.

Can't be real ... it must be a jelly baby on a plastic toy from a box of cornflakes
Brian Walbey: It would have to be a very noisy jelly baby Richard smile
