Photos from the Suzuka 8 hour (not my pics)

I am in a number of forums around the place and in one, there is a guy who attends a great number of MotoGp and bike racing events as a spectator but at times also as an official (medical as I understand it), which means that he gets some access that others may not, so he makes sure he carries his cameras with him.

Here are some pics taken thus far........











They are saying that it is a tad warm and humid.





And nightfall.

A new day dawns





Note the dual throttle cables ........... a change from a few years ago






It is also the 40th anniversary of Suzuka, so there is plenty of evidence around that the race is steeped in history and past winners

And more of the evidence laying around .......










Not all of the teams involved are big budget



Although apparently the Yamaha team is popular for some reason

A bit of modern bike porn




And some older bike porn




Some old guy in attendance


And a scaringly ugly bike paint scheme on a road bike (not race). If this pulled up beside me at lights I would struggle not to laugh

These are superb. I loved Suzuka. So much better than Motegi. These capture the event from different angles - both literally and metaphorically...I'd never appreciated the degree of uphill gradient on spoon before. Great stuff, thank you.
