Phillip Island Moto GP - Day 1

Part 1.

For the last couple of years one of our suppliers has "entertained" us at Phillip Island in a VIP marquee on the pit lane roof. This year was no exception other than the weather being typical PI. Wet, cold and miserable.
Enough background here are the pictures.

It was obvious from the start nothing much was going to happen.


I resorted to taking photos of the monitors




and the hostess


and the food


no action in the back of the pits


a rather ordinary Hardy's Cab Sav


He's the driver but it was only lunch time and he stopped drinking at this point


Decided to walk over to the trade display pavilion


The two up Ducati (look closely there is a bike in that shot!)


The trade display










Got bored with the trade display and headed back for dessert


via the pits for the support riders

Part 2.

Eventually about 3pm they sent the 125's out to see if the track was safe.


These guys were not being paid enough imo


Security trying to keep his hands warm using the pump exhaust heat


Lukey Heights was, ah, empty


Some other people who were not getting paid enough




and finally the big boys went out to play




Lorenzo did 7 laps before saying enough.


Stoner found something resembling traction


Rossi's office


Practice finished and I went back inside where everybody was having a great time


Gratuitous photo of a Nikon camera


So about 5pm it's time to leave and what do we see in the pits? The Honda bunny!


and I do not want to be one of the plebs trying to get out of that car park on Sunday afternoon.

My bro and a couple of mates game over from Wgtn for that, drove down to the Island from my place in the rental racer wearing shorts and tee shirts with no wet weather gear.
