2015 Australian MotoGP, Phillip Island
Home  /  Sport Photography  /  2015 Australian MotoGP

Wow! What an event! What a location! What a race! It was amazing to just be there, let alone watching the best race of the modern era. The lead changed so many times. It was a thrill ride right to the end.

More photos to come.

 

Valentino Rossi Says 'Hi'

Almost everyone's favourite rider & the greatest rider of all time, Mr Valentino Rossi, turns my way as I try to eat the biggest chocolate wagon wheel biscuit you've ever seen. It was massive!!! Cheers to the bakery in San Remo.

1st place - #93 Marc Marquez

It was an incredible battle from the start of the race right to the finish line. Even on the last lap no one had any idea who was going to win. Marc was just too fast in the end.

2nd place - #99 Jorge Lorenzo

This guy has the best name - pronounced 'Hor Hey'. Jorge has just been racing down Gardner Straight at over 300km/h. He slows down to a meager 200-250km/h through Doohan Corner, shaving his elbow and knee pads in the process. I can't believe anyone can go that fast and be so close to the ground - every single lap! I thought he was going to win.

3rd place - #29 Andrea Iannone

In this photo Andrea Iannone races down the main straight. I have no idea how fast he's going but the fastest rider over the weekend almost hit 350km/h down the main straight, so you can safely assume he's pretty zippy here.

4th place - #46 Valentino Rossi

Highly Commended: Colour Prints
2016 Royal Queensland Show

Speeding around Doohan Corner at somewhere between 200-250km/h (he was traveling at over 300km/h just moments before), Valentino Rossi proves once again why he's a living legend. Almost everyone was going for him - the greatest rider of all time. He may not have won the race but it was fun watching him try, fly and ride into our hearts for the millionth time.

Do you ever get nervous when taking photos? I do VERY rarely. This was one of those times. Very exciting and very nerve-racking!
