MotoGP, 2005

Motorcycles in the form of MotoGP returned to the United States in July of 2005 to quite possibly the best track in the country. Me and 3 other fellows set our sights on California and drove non stop from DFW to Montery for the race. If you’ve never been to Laguna Seca, GO, it is amazing the amount of elevation the track covers. The track simply does not come across on the TV or video games, it gains and looses elevation like no ones business. Couple that with beautiful bikes running around on the edge of traction, and you’ve got yourself an event.

I messed with some more non standard aspect ratio crops on this batch. There are a bunch in this set, some may seem a bit redundant, but it’s hard to pick favorites sometimes. I can’t tell you how much fun it was to take pictures at this event. The elevation made for some of the most interesting shooting of motorsports I’ve done. From the corks screw panning downwards with the bikes as they loose elevation to looking down on breaking zones from a hill top, this track was fun fun fun to shoot. Thanks for looking.
