The circuit in the middle of nowhere. And all the more beautiful for it

Could this be the new King of the Island? Jorge Lorenzo is off to a good start so far

Love the pictures, my favorite being of the equipment. Please please please take more of those, shocks, forks, brakes, beneath the fairing spy shots, not enough of those out there...
Great work Scott!

The reason that there aren't many of those photos out there, is because the teams don't allow it. :-) Always a battle to try to get those photos.
