Along with him and his tutorials, we will discover the secrets of the sports image and the ‘behind the scenes’ of the most exciting two wheels Championship of the world.
Location: Silverstone Circuit, British GP

Photographer’s insight: At the beginning of the qualifying session riders always enter the track for some laps. The stands are crowded despite a very cloudy sky. At Silverstone there is also this particular structure reminiscent of homes or buildings, matching them with our sport. Guests are on balconies to overlook the Q sessions from this privileged position and so, with the riders on the track, you can take this alternative and non-replicable picture. This shows also how to live the racetracks in England.
Camera: Nikon D4
1/1200 of a second
