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.

Technical Data:
Camera: Nikon D4
Lens: 85mm
1/1200 of a second
Diaphragm 4

Weather Conditions: very cloudy
