I rode over fairly early and found myself a bit of a good spot for taking photos of the action. Practice and qualifying were in progress and it gave me plenty of time to sort out the camera and start getting a "few" pics...
|Classics - guess who is riding with the G plate...|
|Classic sidecars - this outfit was flying the chair every lap...|
|F1 Superbike - guess who again...|
|Motards being Motards|
For a bit of a break I went for a roam around the pits and then wandered around the circuit where I ran into a few other locals and tried out a few different locations for pics.
Then it was back into the pits again for another poke around and I stumbled across some dude's bikes being prepared for the next races...
Then it was time for some more classic action:
After this race I decided to take off as I had to pop into work. On the way back I managed to avoid getting into trouble with all the HP that were out on the road but did however run into three nasty little showers.
All in all a great day out and nice to see our Pommy visitor out having a bit of fun on NZ's most famous road racing circuit.
Lots more pics here or just the best GM ones here.
