Road to Sepang Town
I came to know that the 2012 MotoGP pre-season test at Sepang International Circuit on the 31 January to 2 February 2012 is open for fans to watch it for free at the main grandstand. Without much hesitation I pack up my gear and drive 240 kilometres up to Sepang on the last day of the first test session at Sepang. The second test is scheduled at the end of February 2012.
Sepang is a small town
The grandstand is very close to the track so I need to get up to speed with the riders. It takes me awhile till I got the shots that are worthwhile to keep.
Trust me it was Valentino Rossi.....I think
Defending Champion. The phrase Satu HATI at the bottom of the fairing in Malay means One Heart meaning UNITED (in everything)
I am lucky to meet a guy who is a very passionate fan of motor sports. He tells me that the other end of the grandstand (hard braking and cornering) is a good place for shooting photographs. Thanks to him I got a few good close shots of the riders taking on the corner.
These pictures are big enough as a wallpaper for a full HD resolution monitor (need to crop the height though).
Finally, a wheelie by Valentino Rossi just before the session ends.
Thanks for the wheelie
