Mark and I decided to visit the Riders for Health - Day of Champions as we'd always wanted to go and as it was only a few pounds more to attend the Friday practice we thought we'd make a few days of it. Well I wasn't sure what to expect but what an excellent couple of days despite the weather - it was an incredible experience. The Day of Champions morning paddock tour was slow at first with very few riders about but we spotted a some in the end (note to self, book the afternoon one next time), the entertainment in the afternoon was great too, the highlight though was the auction in the evening, so so so many things I could have bidded on if only I'd had the budget, however I was stupid not to pluck up the courage to bid on the day with a motoGP photographer, never mind.
The friday practice was good too, the Moto3 bikes sound like bombers, Moto3 are just sound like other race bikes, but the MotoGP are unbelievable, the noise is just awesome, I was grinning like a school kid. It was a challenge to take photos while sat down in a grandstand but I hope you like them.
Anyway enough waffle, here's the photos - http://www.kerryrawson.com/silverstonemotogp2012
