Well…. Thats is the end of 2019 for CMC-Images and it has been an outstanding season, Firstly once again working with the Scottish Daily Record i need to thank Giles and the team who have once again supported my 2019 season and stuck with me throughout so for that i thank you, Lets go into 2020 and push for bigger and better than before,
The start of the year i changed my focus after 10 years shooting mostly 4 wheels i have been working hard in the British Superbike Championship. The best domestic 2 wheel championship in the world by far, Thanks to the MSV BSB Media team for there support throughout the season, Its great to see the hard work and dedication you guys put in to each round making it so professionally run.
Donington Park saw my last event of the season for a number of reasons which won’t be discussed on this post but i wish some things were different for me to attend Brands Hatch for the finally as i have dreamt of processing further in the photography career.
Qualifying day on Saturday morning everyone was preparing for a wet and windy weekend but turns out not so much, The weather held up really well on Saturday for a spectacular dat of practice, Qualifying and Racing from the Supersport guys. The season has been dominated by the PBM BeWiser Ducati boys on the spectacular devil red machines, They have been fantastic all season and with two world class riders in Josh Brookes and Scott Redding its been a formidable force for the rest of the pack this year. Scott lead the pack through all weekend and josh was hot on his heels but after a few set up issues seemed to be that little bit slower than his ex Moto GP team mate.
Massive well done to Jack Kennedy for securing the British Supersport Championship and now breaking news signing for the Santander Salt Tag Yamaha Racing team for 2020 with Dan Linfoot as his team mate, Thats going to be a strong team for the season and both yamahas should be strong next season.
Sunday Raceday and a very damp start to the day all the warm ups were completed on a drying circuit with some slight mizzle falling throughout the 20 minute warm up, Everyone looking to see if there is a falling in the ducati armour even in the rain but nope both were in the top 3 of the timing sheets once again, As the day dried out and the sun began to shine we knew this was ducati territory especially on the GP circuit where Scott had so much experience from the days on the GP Circuit. As expected both races were dominated by the forever fast Scott Redding who has now extended his lead in the showdown with now only 3 of the 6 riders mathematically able to win the championship, Weather dependent i believe the Ducs will be untouchable over the weekend and if Redding power wins race 1 i think that’s the championship over.
Above some highlights of the weekend, I will sign this final weekend feature off by thanking everyone for there support,
Ryan Lilly, Nat Jarvis, Vince Pettit, Giles Blair, Thecheckerdflag.co.uk, Scottish Daily Record, Road Record, British Superbike Championship, British Touring Car Championship, Knockhill Racing Circuit,
Once again i am honoured for the opportunity to grow in my work and with 2020 just around the corner i am looking to progress further and if there is any opportunities out there please get in touch via the contact page or email me direct or on my social media pages.
