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.
          End of Season Round-up
          22nd October 2014
          Last weekend's ARA endurance race has brought the local racing season to an end. Its always a good fun, but hotly contested event and this year enjoyed bright, but very windy conditions.



          Its mid-October and the weather is definitely turning autumnal, but what a great summer we've had. We had good conditions for most race & practice sessions for the TT, Southern 100 and the Festival of Motorcycling that includes the MGP. The conditions made for some fantastic racing.

          A few highlights include Bruce Anstey setting a new Mountain Course outright lap record ...



          Michael Dunlop winning the Senior TT ...



          and Peter Hickman breaking records to become the fastest TT newcomer.



          It was great to see Dean Harrison making such progress in his road racing career. He dominated the Southern 100 meeting and put in some blistering performances on the TT course including his first win.



          And what a season Dan Kneen has had. He won everything in sight on the Irish road racing scene and set a fantastic PB 129mph lap at the TT. He's really shown what he can do on competetive machinery with a great team behind him.



          So that's about it for 2014 and we have a long dark winter to endure before we can look forward to more racing next spring.
          MGP 2014
          10th August 2014
          Just a few days to go to the start of what used to be the Manx Grand Prix and is now known as the festival of motorcycling that incorporates the MGP & Classic TT.



          Well whatever you wish to call it it's always a great fortnight of road racing. The variety of old and new machinery always provides a riot of colour and a cacophony of glorious sounds. Usually good racing too ... from the excitement of the newcomers classes to the speed of some of the old hands. Always great local interest to follow too ... can't wait.
          Southern 100 2014
          12th July 2014
          My Southern 100 didn't quite go to plan as I only managed to make it to the Billown Circuit on two out of three evenings and missed the main race day altogether.



          However, the weather and racing were terrific as always. Dean Harrison was virtually unstoppable this year but it was great to see Guy Martin retain his title as S100 Solo Champion.



          Although Michael Dunlop was short of luck the week also saw some spectacular performances from the likes of Ivan Lintin and local boys Dan & Ryan Kneen.
          Southern 100
          05th July 2014
          We have the Southern 100 road races next week on the Isle of Man. I missed the S100 last year so I'm really looking forward to this as its probably my favourite event of the year.



          Its a well organised meeting which always provides fast & close racing. All we need now is a decent weather forecast ...

          Commitment
          11th June 2014
          As usual I took photos at some of my favourite haunts but I also tried my hand at a couple of new locations this TT. The crossing at St Ninian's was one.

          I've admired plenty of TT action shots from there in the past and often wondered whether I would be able to obtain similar results. What I hadn't reckoned for was the jaw dropping speed that the top runners flash through at. Even on an out-lap between the Grandstand and St Ninian's they reach a phenomenal speed.



          The riders are totally committed to hurtling down Bray Hill as fast as possible and there is absolutely no margin for error. Road racing is not a sport for the faint of heart !
