Ride & Skid It - 22 August 17

Group Photo - 22nd August 2017

Tuesdays' Ride & Skid It event was the second and last evening session and even though the light had reduced drastically by the end of the session I still managed to get some reasonable shots at ISO 6400 or something silly.

I knew that there was a speedway photographer attending as a rider so it was nice to have a chat to Adrian and he gave me some useful information.

The session was run on the usual format: Familiarization, Mini-track, Follow the leader and lastly putting the learning into practice.


The group usually tend take this one pretty easy while they get the feel of the bike and the track and this was no exception; even the fast lads took it easy!

I like this session as there is a good chance of managing to capture some of the riders sliding or falling!

Follow the Leader & Free for all.

The session where the learning is hopefully put into practice! All the riders are gaining confidence and speeding up. Unfortunately as I said earlier the light had started to go during these sessions so the ISO had to be increased to maintain the shutter speed and unfortunately the downside being the increase in noise but I think the photos are still acceptable.
