    yep very good shots sdk, pin sharp as always. i like the wheelie shot the best. i imagine they are fairly hard to get as they dont exactly do it all around the track.

    I found last year the right spot and the riders who wheelie. This year it was the same :)

    Very good, i like it how some of them don't show the whole biker, maybe just their torso, it seems to give an atmosphere to them, it shows you how much the driver is concentrating on the race :)

    That is why I like photographing bikes.
    A close up of car on a track doesn't show anything - It could just be parked up, unless you can show some wheel blur.

    A rider and bike leaning over has to be moving to save falling over.

    I guess the 100-400 has quite a close minimum focusing distance. I struggled with similar shots at F1 testing with my 120-300 2.8 :(

    Very Nice !!! ;)

    I'm just going to HAVE to get that lens before the BSB come over this side of the sea.

    I like the close in shot very much.

    I was at least 6.4 meters away as that is what I set the minimum focus distance on the lens to. I would guess around 10 meters which is close enough when bikes are coming towards you at 100mph+, hence the fast shutter speeds.
