Wow, what timing! I mean, with all due respect to his well-being of course, but I'm thinking that you weren't planning on getting that in the shot!

Ouch! Nice capture Phil. I wonder if health insurance is included in a profession like motorcycle racing!

Hi Phil,

Great timing!

I'm guessing he walked away -- unless he slid into the wall or the bike bounced back and hit him.

I did a little Sportsman class road racing, (250s, not Super Bikes!) in the 70's, and though I never crashed (I also never won:-)), I saw a lot of guys walk away from high speed low side crashes at some insane speeds. Leathers and a good full coverage helmets are surprisingly protective.

He walked away to complain to the flag marshals that there was oil on the track.

Must have been a small spot as noboby else came down there in that race and I could not find any whe I walked on that part of the track straight after the race.

Not really great timing, just patience and being prepared to shoot each time the field came past that piece of the track.


Phil

Perfect timing. Glad to hear he wasn't hurt. And, wow, look at that lens the guy in the corner has. Wonder if he got your shot?
