World Superbikes

27th August 2007
I've decided to start writing a blog in an attempt to make my site a bit more interesting, I say blog, but it's more of a recent work thing really with a little descripition on what I've been up to. So here goes..

The last couple of months have been very slow on the wildlife front, which has been partly due to the poor weather but also some laziness on my part.

I have however been to a couple of Superbike rounds over the last few months, the first being the World Superbike Championship round at Brands Hatch.
I also managed to drag a mate along for his first taste of Superbike photography which I'm glad to say he throughly enjoyed, even though most of the time we were shooting through fencing which can really restrict your photography at times.

Here's a few images from the days event.

Our very own James Toseland giving his Honda CBR1000 a good thrashing.

Toseland won both races delighting the 100,000 strong home crowd and now leads the championship by 66 points with 3 rounds left, fingers crossed he lifts his second world crown before moving to Moto GP next year.

Last years champ Troy Bayliss didn't have a good weekend by his normal standards with a DNF in race 1 and nowhere near a podium in race 2.
The Ducati 999R he rides is getting a little long in the tooth now and struggles to keep up with the fast improving Japanese bikes.

Another aussie, Troy Corser riding the Yamaha YZR1000, always good for a bit of show boating is our Troy, here he is backing it into the entry of Druids.

The last image is of Max Biaggi, former Moto GP star and multiple world 250cc champion getting the front wheel of his Suzuki GSXR1000 off the ground coming out of Stirlings.

When I get a bit more time I'll process the rest of the images and put them in the gallery section.
