Good shot. Being picky, you could try to give a little more space for the bike to move into (you have slightly more space behind than in front). But the only significant comment I'd like to make is that this is rather dark, because you're photographing the shady side of the bike. I've never been to a motor racing circuit so I don't know how practical it is to suggest that you move to somewhere where you're photographing the lit side.

I've posted a couple of mods, trying to improve the brightness. For the first one, I just used the curves tool, which I think has done an OK job. For the second one, I used Paint Shop Pro's fill flash tool, masked on just the foreground, which has worked better, to my eye. Obviously, you wouldn't want to be using a flash gun at a racetrack as it would be dangerous to shine bright lights at the riders.

Thanks for both comments, particularly the suggestions. Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been trying some modifications in Photoshop Elements. I'll post the results soon.
