Nice set Nikon. Is that guy in the "Animal" pipe rack really wearing a baseball cap or is that just an illusion? I thought Full Face Helmets were mandatory? Surely it can run in the sub 10's?

Yes, only a hat, although it was just a burn out for a slow parade down the track, he really should have had his helmet on

Nice to see shots taken by a pro. Certainly brings the event to life.
