Over the Line

By cuffit
This was taken at the British Superbike meeting at Cadwell Park on Saturday - first day of practice. Another attempt of mine to take shots on the sstart-finish straight where few others do for good reason - those people being more sensible! I had a high failure rate and ended up with 3 or 4 shots worthy of showing. However, at first I didn't think I had anything and the 3 of this rider were a great relief as I had intended to get shots of him - what luck!

I did try lower shutter speeds but 1/250 was the only successful speed. I managed to get the pit board in and the bike is sharp front-to-back which I was pleased with as they are doing 100-plus at this point.

Mike, thanks for comment and vote - sorry to have missed you. I did take some shots from the foot of the mountain and noticed that there was a steward at the entrance to the 'Mountain Stand' so thought it was ticket only - not that I have much luck from there. Great day out though and watching Josh Brookes worth the price of the ticket alone! Chris
