Il faut prendre de sacrées positions.
Brian Walbey: The riders who travel in the sidecar part of these machines are very brave people Martine.

Fine shot of the action, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, sidecars have always been the poor relations at race meetings.
That's pretty amazing, Brian! The guy on the back must have some fun!
Brian Walbey: The guy on the back is very important in keeping the outfit securely on the road, and he/she, yes she, must be nutty to want to do it, no way would you ever get me on a sidecar platform!

There's a whole lotta leaning going on!
Brian Walbey: Indeed, if the passenger didn't do this on right handers the outfit would go out of control, likewise they have to hang off the platform on the other side on left handers, rather them than me!

I don't normally look in on Sundays, Brian - do you always do a "Sunday Speed"?
Brian Walbey: I'm changing my posting in general to 5 day series from Monday to Friday and, like this series and the Saturday one of a local steam railway, I am spreading both consecutively over 10 weekends as they are probably of limited interest. Trouble is I don't know what I'm going to do at weekends after these run out as yet! Thanks very much for taking the time to have a look though, I guess they are not your first choice of subjects.
Impressinnant dans ce virage !!
Il ne manque que le son ..
Brian Walbey: Sorry I can't post the sound as well, but it still looks quite spectacular.
The most insane version of racing! Well caught
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill and always treated as the poor relations at meetings, sadly.
i guess it is slightly difficult now to get insurance after this image gets out, Brian. super capture.
Brian Walbey: One doesn't have to get insurance to race motorcycles or cars, but I believe the race organisers have to arrange insurance for all sorts of eventualities.

What! Women taking part? Whatever next; they will be wanting the vote... (Lights blue touch paper and stands well back....) wink
Brian Walbey: Indeed women taking part Alan, quite a few sidecar outfits in levels below international have ladies 'in the chair' and there are some extremely competent women in racing including Jenny Tinmouth in the British Superbike Championship and Maria Costello MBE who excels at races like the IOM TT races.
Great shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
