The second anniversary race of the Bel-Ray Six Hour was held at the Phillip Island Grand Prix circuit in December 2010, hopefully the race will become a permanent fixture on the Australian motor racing calendar. The race was a cracker, the teams very professional and the motorcycles generally proved very reliable. The weather was very kind, unfortunately Victorian motorcycle fans stayed away, it was their loss as they missed a great event.

I have recorded imagery of the Six Hour Race, Pit Lane action, Team pictures and a few candid images of Wayne Gardner with his son Remy!

Please click on the heading or associated image to be taken to the dedicated page covering the event.....

THE SIX HOUR RACE - December 2010:

Most of Australia's best riders lined up for the Le Mans start including international rider and TT winner Cam Donald. Wayne Maxwell on the 'Demolition Plus' Honda CBR1000RR won the top ten shoot out on Saturday.

The 'clickable' image depicts Wayne Maxwell's co-rider Josh Brookes on the 'Demolition Plus' Honda CBR1000RR leading the field away on Gardner Straight after the Le Mans start...

THE SIX HOUR 'PIT LANE' - Dec. 2010:

Pit lane was the place to be on race day, most action centred around refuelling and the obligatory tyre changing, there was a fire of sorts and amazingly a plague of rearset and gear linkage failures!

The 'clickable' image depicts an 'undamaged' brake side rearset which required complete removal and reassembly just to fit a replacement pivot bolt which had 'fallen out' on a Suzuki GSXR1000...

THE SIX HOUR 'ATMOSPHERE' - Dec. 2010:

There was plenty happening besides the actual race, daredevil riding, group shots of teams, Wayne Gardner and his son Remy, Kevin Magee, some lovely ladies and miscellaneous images captured during my walks around the pits etc....

The 'clickable' image depicts a young lady involved with the 'Put It On My Tab Officer' Team, don't ask...

I LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, DIGITAL CAMERAS, MOBILE PHONES/WIRELESS BROADBAND, GPS, ETC.  ALL SO COOL AND 'PORTABLE'......
