For the last couple of years I had planned to go to the Glen Helen section, but it has never happened. This year I decided that I would finally get there, and that’s what I did for Wednesday’s racing.

Glen Helen is a technical tree lined section and is home to the first commentary point for Radio TT. On dull days it can be pretty dark due to the trees, so a camera with good performance in low light is important.

For these photos, I shot the Supersport race in the section just before the commentary point. I had planned to stay there for the sidecar race as well, and then move round the corner for the practice laps.

Sadly the Manx weather had other ideas and there was no more action after the Supersport race. The Sidecar race was postponed until Today, so I will need to decide on a new shooting location.

    Tony,

    No one does it better mate. Great job! On a plane home, no senior. Pints when I’m back on the isle with no racing going on.

    For those of you watching Tony’s 2014 and series of images here you see what it takes to be professional, plan and create. It’s not static, stand in one spot and point. Tony has it sorted.

    Cheers,

    K

  2. Cheers Kev, safe journey home. If you make it back for the Classic TT we’ll get out then.
