My Laguna Seca 2010 Pics & Vids

A little late posting these but thought I'd put 'em up anyway. My buddies and I ponied up and got hospitality packs for the whole weekend which included grandstand seats with the big TV (so we could see what was happening on the 70% of the track we couldn't see), paddock passes, parking and most importantly food + unlimited beer in the Flag Room tent. I took my cameras and snapped about 1200 shots + some video.








































Earl Hayden on the right, me on the left in a horrible straw hat (dunno what I was thinking). Totally cool guy and Nicky's mom was in the back behind the counter. This was at his "Earl's Racing Team" stand, selling t-shirts and other stuff for his sons.



Here are some vids I took with my little point and shoot camera:

Free practice 1 - took this mostly for the sound (my crappy little mic doesn't do the loudness justice)

Morning warm up - again, mostly for the sound but look how fast they get off that corner
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wul7mCN0b1E

For comparison, this is some video of qualifying from 2006 when they were still 990cc. The 990s were definitely louder and had a much deeper sound. Sorry for the shakycam action but the sound is what I was after.

Re: My Laguna Seca 2010 Pics & Vids

great pics! i watched that race on tv and i've always wanted to go there. i've always wanted to know what it feels like to go thru the corkscrew because it looks twice as insane with the bikes than it does with cars
