Sand Racing pics from Vazon Beach...

04th February 2011

One of the Motor Sport highlights each year in Guernsey is the Condor Ferries Sand Ace Championship held on Vazon Beach. There is always good support from some of the top UK, maybe even European riders who enjoy racing on the beach for a change.
To have the chance to 'get up close' to a full heat of 'sliders' is really exciting when you remember that these guys have no brakes!
As an MSA Accredited photographer I take advantage of the special access and try to capture the action from close quarters.
My absolute favourite of the visitors is Mitch Godden who is a multiple winner of the Championship. Mitch is also a good customer - he seems to like the pics I take... must be all that sun and sand!
Taking good action pics is made a lot easier when I have such a stylish rider lined up.
Mitch rides bike number 29. You wont miss him in the Galleries!
