    Anyone one else going? I'll be there all three days, seats in the turn 15 grandstands but I'll be walking around a bunch. Taking the G3 with the 14-42, 45-200, 20 and Konica 40. Hoping to get some decent shots, if you see a dorky looking guy with the above kit it's probably me. Say hi!! :smile:

    Talked to a semi-pro photographer who went to the F1 race, and she took all the tele she could (rented a 400/4) and wanted more. Apparently, the views down the stretches are pretty good.

    I won't be there at 0830 though - that's for sure! And I don't think I'll make the first 0955 MotoGP practice.....We'll see how tired I am in the morning...:redface:

    I am an avid follower of motor sport especially Moto GP (only recently gave up owning a bike)

    Would love to see an ongoing thread set up to follow the season around the world !

    I am hoping to get to the British Moto GP this year at Silverstone and if so I can add pictures from that round

    Anyone else out there who can contribute from the rest of the calendar ?

    Regards
    Rob

    we parked in some lot WAY out and walked round the east side of the track and then down thru all the public areas before finally heading to t15 n checking out our seats
    then we wandered around a lot more
    we had a ton of people from the bike group we wanted to run into
    so we sat in the actual seats for 2nd practice motogp and moto... 3 i think.. whoever came right after them, lol.

    got there about 12:30, stayed till about 5:30

    i got a WACKY sunburn that snuck in round my visor... lol! ive got red mutton chops! hahaha!


    (i wont be laughing later, ill be panicking and putting on anti wrinkle cream and as many things that i can find that seem like moisturizer... hehe)
