Just as Moto2 and Moto3 wrap up their second day of testing in Jerez, we are happy to give you episode number 22 of our photo column “Mirco Lazzari’s Road to MotoGP 2014“, the photographic tour on the pages of RTR Sports that-through the images of the great photographer- wants to take us up to opening round of the 2014 MotoGP World Championship in Qatar on March 23rd.
Shot during the Bridgestone MotoGP test in Phillip Island, Australia, this picture portrays Valentino Rossi of Yamaha Factory Racing. The track has now disappeared, leaving room to the green of the grass and to the blue of the sky and sea.
Who is Mirco Lazzari?
Mirco Lazzari was born in Castel San Pietro (BO) in 1961. His MotoGP and Formula1 pictures were first published by Grazia Neri and then by Getty. Mirco, one of the Nikon official photographers who won several international awards, has been working with RTR Sports Marketing for what MotoGP pictures are concerned.
