British Superbike Test Day Donington Park

Last Thursday held at Donington Park the 1st offical test Day for the British Superbike Championship. Luckily for the weather was kind and the sun even made an appearance for a short while.
A few from the day.

Re: British Superbike Test Day Donington Park

Great set of pictures Derek. You must be a musle man to pan with the 90-250 f2.8, was it a monopod job?

I thank you also because you have answered my question. Last year I went to the free BSB practice day in April at Brands Hatch and have been watching the BH site for this but nothing showing. Never occured to me to try another circuit.

Hope you had a good day. These BSB practice days are excellent for honing your panning skills.

Thanks for sharing.
John

Thank for the comments, a good day was had, weather kind for once and a chance to see the new rider bike combinations. Well worth the day off work.

It was a combo of monopod and hand held. Mostly hand held. Too heavy to hand hold all day.

These days I don't often go race days as I prefer the freedom to walk around on practice days.

Look at the BSB website for race dates /http://www.britishsuperbike.com/

There is a test day at Brands Hatch tomorrow well depends on the weather.

Re: British Superbike Test Day Donington Park

Great pics, hopefully the first of many this year I take it.

It's too cold up here for them at the moment but hopefully the warmer weather will come and I'll be able to get a few too (probably in the wet tho)
