Great shot and as crisp as you like and I know the bend! Always good to see Guy Martin and his wise choice of visor reveals that 'stare of concentration' - does he ever blink!? I wonder though if a slightly slower shutter speed might have given a hint of speed blur in the tyre even though the action is in the angle of lean and the water from the tyre - a really minor point really as I like the shot.
Good shot, looks pretty difficult to capture these guys as I recall they move at fearsome speed right from the off. Were you part of the crowd - panning a challenge? I like the composition which shows off the event well - intersting to see the media photographers getting close! Chris

Thanks for the coments and votes; much Appreciated. Colin I did think about taking the top third out but then it becomes very much like all the other shots taken at the same point as we all try and avoid the high mesh fences, the TV advert boards and other obstacles etc. Technically, it would make for a better shot and the bike would appear bigger in the frame - no distractions for club judges to home in on, but then not that exciting either. The top bit doesn't make it any more exciting so I have to agree with you; it just seems a bit different and a bit more pleasing to me. Anyway, I have a few more without the white bits and will post one soon. Chris
You have a knack of being in the right place at the right time! I understand that Mr Bird saw a few of his bikes go down the road at this event and I amnot sure he is always in the best of humour as it is! I wouldn't have liked to have been the one to tell him - or that close when he heard! Chris
A very nice shot indeed. It is the look on the bridesmaid's face adjacent to the bride that caught my eye (even before I opened the full view) that makes the photo for me - but would it make the album for that reason! Only a moment but a telling one, or not? Who knows but a very good photograph. Chris
Now, Rickie, if I had seven shots as good as this I would have put them on one at a time to gain maximum kudos! Great quality and consistency so you have my user award as well as my vote. Favourite if I had to choose, number 1 I think but they are all very good and would grace any BSB programme such is the quality. You don't see many votes for motorsports and they are technically difficult to capture so well, but each to his or her own discipline; nevertheless, there are only a few here that can get them as good as yours and the rest of us will continue to aspire to do so. Thank goodness it's a great day out even if the photography doesn't turn out so well......
