SHOOTING BSB WITH FUJI AT Oulton Park
For the 2019 season I have been looking to break into the Bennetts British Superbike Championship, Its a series I have followed closely for 19 years since the days of Chris Walker and Neil Hodgson in the epic battle to the championship final where the Ducati 998 came out on top as the ever reliable Suzuki GSXR 1000 blew its engine in the closing laps.
I have been shooting Knockhill rounds for the last 3 years and it’s been a superb paddock to be a part of and I had gained the experience to have the opportunity to shoot the Oulton Park round of the season.
Nothing better on a Bank Holiday weekend to get trackside with fast bikes and the amazing sights and sounds of the BSB, Sunday morning started a bit damp with FP3 and Qualifying ahead. I decided to head out to the final corner to capture some speed and get the thrill of bike racing up close and personal.
This is one of my favourite images from the event looking deep into the eyes of Scott Redding on the BeWiser Ducati. The detail of the Fuji XT2 is incredible to capture the detail at such high speeds, It was a rush to have these amazing riders pass by so close to me and see right into their eyes as they put all their skills to the test on this fantastic circuit.
Oulton Park is one of my favourite circuits in the country and from this event it will possibly be Josh Brookes favourite circuit as he completed the double victory on Race day.
Over all it was an excellent weekend with some spectacular action and good close racing, The next round will be at the amazing Donington Park in Derby. What will happen at the triple header weekend after such a dominating round not only for Josh Brookes but the BeWiser Ducati team. I for one am really excited to be heading to cover that event.
