    Some of the AMA race teams rented the Laguna Seca track in Monterey and I was there with my camera....... Here are a few photos. I was working on my slower shutter speeds to try to give a sense of speed.

    Great photos! Agree with Rob94!

    Personal favourite is number 6, shows how much power the bikes have

    Thanks Guys. Monday it was tricky lighting wise as the AM was foggy and very cold. Then the fog kinda went away but it stayed cold, then it was just harsh sun the rest of the day, had a jacket on all day.

    Great job - you did very well, and man, I love bikes.

    I don't have any strong favourites out of the bunch - I think they're all great but 4 & 6 stand out slightly from the rest.

    Great work.

    It was always my dream to come race Laguna Seca. Too bad my racing days are over, and 4 wheels to 2..

    Nice pics though, good color

    Where were you on the track? one sport or did you move around a bit.

    My favorite spot is the downhill s curve right after topping the hill at about 180

    These are cool. I don't know hardly anything about photoshop. Can you tell me how you got the pavement behind the cyclist to be so smooth and only one color? I've seen this effect in many photos.

    BTW, I HATE Laguna Seca. :) I had this game, Gran Turismo 3... And there was this challenge to make it around the track in a Viper within a certain time, and I could NEVER do it! That corkscrew... it gave me nightmares *shivers*
