Default More Road Racing - Tandragee 100

More jumps and high speed action on country roads.

Michael Pearsons bike bares the scars from flying stones threw up from other riders rear wheels.



125cc action at its closest.



Derek McGee trying hard to catch the leaders.


Michael Dunlop flat out. Son of the late Robert Dunlop and nephew of the late great Joey Dunlop, both superstars in the world of real road racing. Both ultimately paid the price for this extemely dangerous sport.

these are fantastic, how'd you get them without being in the roadway? #1 is just superb.

Wasn't far off it. Passed by at about touching distance at times.

Superb shots as usual, looks like Mad Max in that first shot, i assume that's 2.8 on the 300?

300 F2.8 combined with 7D. It just seems to work. NW200 coming up in a weeks time. Can't wait.

Thanks folks. I'll be there Mach22. Probably around Ballysally roundabout and if I'm really lucky might get to do Black Hill which is really hairy.
Have applied for a media pass this time to get a little closer to the action, although about 6 feet from a superbike is pretty close at 120mph in these pics. The rush of air almost takes you off your feet.
