Alex Lowes, twin brother to Sam Lowes, was perhaps the quickest learner of The Corkscrew today…some other riders are going to have a think on it.

Chaz Davies was looking fast out there on the Ducati Panigale R. The red bike and red leathers really pop on the track too.

Rizmayer saved this off-road excursion. I believe the on-track announcers called it an “agricultural endevour” — I just liked the way he made the pebbles go fly. The Corkscrew crowd applauded his efforts, as well.

Very impressed with the pace of Torres this year.

Tom Sykes was a doll, and helped me play with my long panning shots from pit lane.

Sylvain Guintoli coming into the garage during FP2. He would like you to note the #1 plate.

That rear tire is not flat. Physics.

It’s cute when the Brits hangout together…

Canepa blew T2 and had to watch one of the Pedercini riders pass by.

Baiocco-Pit-blur-Laguna-Seca-Jensen-Beeler

I call this one “Where’s Waldo” since Baiocco is sort of lost in the huddle.

Remember that time I told everyone Chaz Davies waved to me because I was all alone at T2 taking photos? Photos taken at the right moment can convey something very different that what actually happened. Always good to remember that.
