More great photos by ROO! I also like your shot of Rubens' team's usage of tape, since they don't use thermostats. Slow down the coolant, or a little less air flow over the radiators. I had not heard of Eric Bana's, "Love the Beast". I will look it up, thank you. Again, great shots as always.

So, I sometimes shoot with a mate who's recently shot some rugby league events with Nikon. Since doing that he's been complaining that he can't get the same sharpness with his Canon gear that he can with Nikon. I have no idea what he's on about...

MotoGP shots from Friday - overcast, rainy conditions are great as they run clear visors :D

Like the last one, you can see his intensity.

...And it's a perfect view of how close he came to scraping the pavement.

Well done Roo,
I was hoping you would be posting some your beautiful photos. Wow, amazing captures, again.:) But those weather conditions on Saturday.:oops: I just got a 400mm f/4 DO II. When we go there, I'll be ready.

Thanks Geoff! Unfortunately/Luckily/Thankfully, I was only there on the Friday and the weather was bad enough then. Very windy on the 2 hour drive down but it eased off and then started raining just before the first Moto3 session. The afternoon was nice and sunny though. I know people that were there on Saturday and it was horrendous - the lens hood on a great white is a real wind catcher :LOL:

The 400 DO mk2 is such a good lens to have. You are going to get some great shots with it.

Sandown 500 last weekend, better known as the retro round as a lot of teams pull out some old liveries

A throw back to the 80s JPS BMW liveries - a lot of behind the scenes work to get all sponsors to agree to forego corporate colours for gold
