Been a motor sport fan for years. Have heard of the Knockhill circuit over the years, but never seen any pictures.

Nice to see for the first time.

I think they race motorcycles there, possibly vintage. If you ever get the chance it would be nice to see some old Matchless and Nortons in action.

Thanks, Colin. Looking forward to your future pictures of the Scottish race scene.

Ideal, you will notice a huge difference with that lens especially on the focus speed for this sort of sport. The f2.8 you won't notice until you try field sports etc but you are going to love it!!!! It is also nice for portraits etc.
