ISLE OF MAN TT 2008, SUPERSTOCK RACE
Here are a bunch of images from Monday 02 June 2008 Superstock race. Again in no particular order. Put it this way, I've 175 to sort out so it's going to be a long "day for night." Only two deleted but those 175 left are all on the money. That's only one race too. Haven't even contemplated looking at the afternoon race!
The Winner was No. 6, Cameron Donald. Second place went to No. 3, John McGuinness. Third position was No. 1, Guy Martin. Those three lads are amongst the pics. I was one of the few fortunate ones who actually got McGuinness waving, which was a real crowd pleaser. We didn't get any wheelies today, but maybe later in the week.
A big thanks to the guys down the back alley of Taubman Street( where they were taken) for making a little space for a slight female and her camera. Hustling for position is never pretty, we all want a bite at the photo cherry, and they allowed me space to have mine. I hope you all got the goods too lads.
The T. Shirt now seems to have it's own fanclub and is a life force beyond my control. Being asked if you can have your T.Shirt photographed is well, surreal. Being called Babooshka in the middle of my local high street even more so,especially as the name does not appear on the shirt.
Well, eats shoots and leaves post again. I am going to be a bad blogger this week, but I will be "calling at a blog near you" soon as I can. I will leave you with some stats of todays race.
