In 2005 I was the Chief photographer for Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and was to make some memorable photos of a friend. Later that year he won his 1st World Championship. He was a friend a champion as well a neat Human Being. Nicky seen here is Honda MotoGp bike heading up the front straightaway. I used a Canon 1D III , Canon ef300mm 2.8l is lens.
