Hello and welcome to the start of the 2014 Race season, After a long wait and Christmas and New Year departing I feel that all the race paddock will be looking forward with excitement & anticipation to the new season about to start, Since the end of last year quite a lot of things have happened, I for one am looking forward to new challenges with my 22 year RAF career coming to an end in December this year, I wonder what will be round the corner with new direction and maybe a new career, I aim to follow my dreams and invest in new equipment and see if the world of Superbike photography will offer new challenges and some sort of income. I feel that I have a mountain to climb but realistically I'm looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that may present there self's. Time will tell.
This year has already started for me as a ACU License day at Donington Park last weekend (23rd Feb) with Thundersport GB blew the cobwebs off the cameras and I got the panning action back on track, I nearly had a accident with a row of air fencing when a section blew up and over the track fence and landed where I was taking photographs from moments earlier, that was a lucky escape !
I have been in negotiations with the Royal Air Force Motorsport team and will be in the Thundersport GB Paddock doing all their requirements for publications and advertising this year, I will also be attending some Hottrax meetings to support riders in championships there.
So there it is, no fantastic announcement like I'm the team Photographer for the Factory Yamaha team ! I'm just plodding on loving what I do until someone picks me up and gives me the break I have been working so hard to achieve.
Before I finish my first Blog of the year I would like to pass my condolences onto the family and friends of #92 Darren Hayes who tragically died in a road accident and also Rod Wilcock who Died Friday 28th Feb from cancer. He has left a massive hole in not only the Wilcock family but the Hottrax paddock, I for one loved the times we had in the paddock bars and will miss him immensely. R.I.P Rod. I miss you so much already mate.
Ride hard and stay safe.
