Yoshinari Matsushita
20th March 2015
There's no getting away from it, motorcycle road racing is an extremely dangerous sport. The riders know and fully accept the risks. In fact it is the element of risk that provides the thrill and adrenaline rush!

The elation of completing a fast lap of the most demanding road circuit in the world is known to relatively few and is hard to beat. Riders come from far and wide to compete and test themselves and their machinery in the ultimate challenge which is the Isle of Man TT races.

The downside, of course, means when things go wrong riders can pay a high price for their thrill seeking risking serious injury or worse.

As a photographer I find such tragic events distressing and often wrestle with my conscience over posting images of deceased riders. In the end my respect for their courage and motivation wins the day.

Ever cheerful and extremely popular Japanese rider Yoshinari Matsushita pictured here in practice for the 2013 TT lost his life about 10 minutes after this image was taken. Respect & RIP
TT 2015
13th March 2015
Its only mid-March and I'm already starting to look forward to TT 2015. I'm salivating at the prospect of hotly contested practice sessions and speculating about the likely front runners.

Last year John McGuinness was riding with a significant wrist injury. It will be really interesting to see if a fully fit J McG still has what it takes to show the host of young guns how to lap the mountain course at race winning pace ...
Race Marshals
19th February 2015
As we start to look forward to the 2015 racing season I'd like to pay tribute to all those who volunteer to marshal the road racing events we all enjoy.

In my experience a more cheerful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable set of race fans you'd be hard pushed to find. And of course without the Orange Army and the dedicated band of well trained travelling marshals there would be no racing - FACT

Each race or practice session needs a minimum of 500 marshals, so if you'd like to get closer to the action and participate in the greatest road racing the world has to offer why not enquire about signing up at the TTMA Website
Dan Keen
08th February 2015
I've just heard the news that one of the most talented, fastest and determined road racers the Isle of Man has ever produced is (through no fault of his own) potentially without a ride for the 2015 road racing season.

Dan finished a terrific road racing season in 2014 as the Irish Superbike champion and really showed what he is capable of with the right package of machinery and team support.

The night this photo was taken he achieved his fastest ever circuit of the Mountain course at an amazing 129.36mph (17th fastest - ever).

There is plenty more to come from this personable young man and I for one sincerely hope that a ride worthy of his talent can be arranged in good time for start of the forthcoming season.
Image Collections
27th October 2014
I often get asked about images from a variety of events that are not on the website. This is because I am restricted in the number of images I can display on the site.

In order to help I have now created several collections of 2014 racing images on Flickr as follows :-

Road Racing 2014

Andreas Racing Association 2014

Motocross 2014

If you see an image on Flickr that you're interested in just drop me an email (robin.hynes@gmail.com). I'll need the title & date of the event/album and the image reference number.

Also let me know whether you'd like a digital copy (prices start from as little £5 each) or a print. If you need a print then let me know the size(s) and quantity required. The list below will give you an idea of print costs.

Examples of print sizes and costs :-
    7" x 5" £6
      9" x 6" £8
        12" x 8" £12
          A3 £20

          Other sizes can be arranged, and bear in mind there is a significant discount for several prints going to the same address as this saves on P&P costs.
