TT 2018 is Go !!
29th May 2018
TT 2018 is getting of to a flying start and enjoying almost perfect practice conditions. This time last year we had hardly turned a wheel until about Thursday. This year Dean Harrison has just set a new unofficial lap record by putting in a Superbike practice lap in excess of 133mph. And its only Tuesday. Roll on the rest of the week !

2018 TT Accreditation
15th January 2018
For the last 4 years my photo accreditation at the island's premier road racing events has been endorsed by the TT Supporters Club. I have very much enjoyed providing images for the TTSC but unfortunately, due to a change in circumstances, their magazine will no longer be produced and I can no longer rely on their support.

I am therefore on the lookout for any motorsport publications/websites etc. that maybe need a photographer for the 2018 TT and the Festival of Motorcycling (Classic TT and Manx Grand Prix).

I seem to specialise in action shots from some of my favourite vantage points on the course rather than reportage from the grandstand, prize presentations etc.

There are plenty of examples of my work from past events on this website and I really would like to continue to convey some of the colour and excitement provided by the best road racing events on the planet.

So if anyone can use a sports tog or feels they may be able to help in any other way please don't hesitate to get in touch.


Meanwhile, thanks for your interest and here's one of my favourites ...

Dan Kneen - ZXR750 - Classic TT 2016 - Top of Barregarrow
25th June 2017
I don't know how much Honda have invested in the development and production of their new flagship road bike. But I'm guessing it's a very great deal.

The new CBR1000RR Fireblade SP2 is, according to the mighty HRC 'a unique assembly of the finest components you'll ever find on a sports bike'. Further, 'it has less weight, more power and advanced electronics that deliver outstanding performance wherever you ride'.

To establish the new model's road racing credentials they recruited the dream team of John McGuinness & Guy Martin.

Unfortunately for Honda their homologation race bike also has something extra. Something they really hadn't planned for - a bad reputation. After a series of incidents in testing and two notable crashes involving both riders at recent road racing events they have a serious PR problem on their hands.

John McGuinness has pretty much kept his own council but Guy Martin, never one to be relied upon to easily follow the corporate line, has summed it all up very simply and dubbed the bike a 'Jonah'

All that research, development & technology damned by a sense of superstition !

I hope Honda can recover from this serious setback as on paper the bike's a winner and in real life the bike looks and sounds bloody gorgeous !
