How far was the camera from the edge of the track? I can't imagine the riders would want to be distracted by it. Did you get any hassles placing it trackside ? Safety concerns ? I ask because I'd like to try something similar.

The camera was about 2 feet from the edge of the curbing. I place it so that there is no way that the riders would clip it even at full lean with their tires on the paint.

I have spoken with the riders about this and they say they notice on the first lap out and then totally forget it is there. I have placed the remote at several events and have never heard a negative comment from a rider. I posted some of the photos on the race club's BBS and the riders really loved the shots and none said it was distracting. Some said "oh yeah, I noticed that camera out there during the race, got any shots of me" :)

You might get in trouble placing a remote at a race, it depends on the organization.

I just noticed these shots, really nice job. I have seen your photos over the years at several motorcycle websites and noticed you have gotten very good at this. Do you still race or are you just taking photos now?

Some great captures there. Great viewpoint from the remote camera.

Who is that poser trying to get his elbow down (Bike No.22)? :lol:

Awesome shots Stu. I am hoping to hit the WERA National at Summit Point in a couple of weeks and would be happy with shots half as good as those.
