He should sit on the little straight off Turn #2 where that lip is and capture all the wannabe TT racers with the front in the air.  That would be a fun shot.

I almost did not go to this track day because I have been missing a bit of work to go to track over the past few months. Apparently my boss was beginning to think I was shopping around and unhappy. As a result he gave me a bonus.
Conclusion: Track days.....fun and profitable :7:

i took a couple of wheelie pics on the bump after the grapevine from the tower in the pits, had my 300mm lens, it was on my room mates camera though so i haven't seen them yet, should be nice though.

* just asked and he said its still too far away :( oh well...just found these on VanHap

lmao nelly freaking lucky -_-

damn sloguy, your 300mm lense reached out there? actually, come to think of it, bus stop (that area after grapevine) isn't that far from the pits huh? last time i was out there i considered trying to take photos of sunset, that last turn before the front straight, from the tower, but spent my time riding instead :D

Im convinced that the puple tape makes me look faster
i think its the fact that you were going fast ;) you've got some good form from what i saw in the van hap pics, you have a lot more pics than i did for some reason :( just need to kiss your mirror a little more, get your upper body to the inside of the turn and down a little, when i started doing that i was amazed at  the difference
