Hi guys - I went to Road America this weekend and checked out the motorcycle racing. Of course I took my camera...

I'm kind of new to this motorsports thing, but I really like it. C/C welcome.

Here are a few I got:

She put it into the marbles at Canada Corner!

Up the hill to turn 6:

A little different take on racing photography - blur the riders, not the background. I'm not sure if this works or not.

And a few more from same day - the No Limit motorcycle stunt team with Jason Britton. If these don't qualify as motorsports, my apologies :cool:

Great set. I was going to go out to these. I live in Plymouth so just a short drive to RA. Are you heading up this way for the Nascar event?

I'm not as interested in NASCAR as I am in other types of racing, but I think I'll come watch just to see them try and navigate some right hand turns.

Canada Corner could be very interesting, so could The Kink.

I ended up in Plymouth a few times looking for ice and beer (and to avoid the rain).

Oh, and thanks for the encouragement - I'll keep doing this kind of shooting if people like looking at it!

The focus in #1 is spot on, definitely my favorite.

I'm pretty sure those are each a Kawasaki ZX-6R.

@Click-it: I've never been to Blackhawk Farms - I know a guy that does track days out there.He's working on me to take my bike out there and ride with him. As for photography, I've never just showed up to shoot. If you're interested in something like that, PM me.

To all the others - thanks for your comments. It's the first time I've put a series up here and the feedback is great. Thank you!
