You need to get them to remove that sign, it is always in the way LOL. Nice shots. What's the reason behind the orange jackets, are these in case the rider comes off in bad weather so can be located or something?

Hi Mark, the orange bibs are to denote newcommers to the track. The Ulster Grand Prix is held on the Dundrod Circuit the fastest Road Race in the world with an average lap speed of 134mph. Couldnt get to todays Practice when i got up this morning i could hardly walk (the old Arthritis strikes again ) hope to be ok for Saturday ??

Ah, OK that makes sense. Sorry to hear about the Arthritis being a pain again, hope you feel better tomorrow.

Hi Maxsamsung..

Couple of nice photos-- I particularly like the 2nd photo... wheel nicely off the ground - and a bit of angle in the bike (I used to punt around on motorbikes in Australia... back in my 'younger' & somewhat less cautious days).

The blur gives a better feeling of speed (nice panning at that angle). Also, good to see some of the rider's facial expressions / concentration.

Btw... 134mph, that is fast. I thought Hockenheimring (in Germany) was the fastest circuit...? Or was that before they introduced those extra chicanes?

Cheers!

Paul

Hi Paul, thanks for the comment, Hockeneimring used to hold the record but the I.O.M and the Ulster are faster now, with the Ulster being the fastest.
