Ringwood Motocross Club – Rogers Hill Raceway Bere Regis

What a great day!

I spent many sundays in my younger days at motocross and grasstrack meetings and have been longing to return with digital equipment and the awesome Nikon 70 – 200 F2.8 AF-S.

This was the club’s first race meeting of the year – and the weather held!

The Nikon D700 with the 70-200 proved more than capable to capture some of the fast moving action. Shutter priority and continuous focus combined with 3D focus tracking ensured very few images were not sharp. I used a panning technique with slower shutter speeds on some shots to give a sense of movement.

Shot of the day for me is bike number 18 with a grasstrack style slide coming out of a bend!

Looking forward to the next meeting and a different track, a few shots from the day shown below.
