Ok the British Superbikes will be at Thruxtom from 13/04/07 and im looking to go on the Friday, so you can go down pit lane etc.
Has anyone been here before to take some images and which are the best places to shot from, maybe a few EPZ members could meet up.

Let me know.
Thanks
Mike

I may be there for this one Mike, depending on work situation. Not been to Thruxton before so can't advise on best viewpoints.

I was at Donington on Saturday for the World Superbikes qualifying day. May post a couple of shots over the next few days.

I'll post again if I'm ok for 13th.

On the basis of 'If you don't ask - you won't get' see if you can get onto the balcony of the little Aircraft Control Tower there. (Grease a palm or two with silver perhaps? ;0)

It's not a very big building but it will get you above everything and give you a good view of the pits, the pit straight and the 'S'-bend in front of the right-hand stand.

HTH's...

yea the bloke you need to speak to and grease his palm is Mike Otley, forget silver, a nice crisp blueback will do just fine............HA HA HA.

I was at a couple of meets last year and each time they had a film crew on the balcony.
If you are an early bird you can set your pitch against the fence, in front of the tower. You get a clear view of the S bend. Try and get in the corner because other togs will lean over the fence and block your shot. Also look out for press in orange boiler suits who stand between you and the track. Most will move for you but they are there for a reason.
I hope to go but be warned, take your own drinks and grub.
