  2. Great ones Tim! That first shot has me searching the net to find some of that stuff I can see live.:eek:

    Update: Wouldn't you know it - they're 30-miles from me in Grove City, OH this Saturday night and my bride has us booked already!

    Great shots. The colors in #21's leathers just make the pictures pop!
     
  5. My writing wasn't very clear I'm afraid. My bride has us booked for Saturday night, but unfortunately not for flat track racing... :frown:

    Excellent photography Tim, you had great access and brought home some wonderful shots. The composition and flying dirt really brings out the interest in the series.
     
  9. Great stuff there Tim. You nailed these. My favorites are #'s 1,2,4,&5.

    Thanks much, all.

    Bummer, Ron. Maybe you can make a later round?

    Frank, I did have media credentials but truth be told, apart from the first two, everything I posted here was captured from general admission areas! Most tracks won't offer ticket holders such good angles, but this one does! :biggrin:

    Great shots! Pro Sports division or Experts? Which size engines? 505's, 600's?
    Of course, if it's Experts it could be 750's.

    Reminds me of races at Ascot Park, oh so long ago. Thanks for the shots.

    Yes. :biggrin: 750/1000 Expert, 450 Pro Expert, and 450 Pro Sport. I'm not sure how the 750/1000 thing shakes out, but basically the H-D's are 750's while all the other twins are allowed up to 1000cc's. In this case there were Suzuki and Triumph twins in addition to the usual XR750's. Good fun.
