If you get bored, Bro, there's about 250 pictures on my facebook page from today. I took over 400 photos in total, but many were quite blurry due to the speeds involved (and I need to work out how to set the shutter speeds and aperture sizes on my Nikon D40).Brogan said:I think the correct term is ballast
I'm sorry, you say your 6'5", lanky and afraid of nothing? A scary job to be sure. I've never been that close to SC racing myself, but one of my old boss's (also 6"5' and lanky) was a passenger back in the day and used to hang from Vincent Black Shadows and the like. I also lost two friends to sidecar racing when i was 15/16 and was probably enough to put me off having a go, they were brothers and chasing the British Championship at the time, i can well believe it is one enormous adrenalin buzz, but sadly just a little too kamikaze for my blood. They are however, wonderful machines!sportsman said:indeed I started racing as a passenger
