A day well spent guys. Loved every moment of it but the highlights for me were the action outside the track, Mr. Craig Jones and of course the music at Music Room.
Where are the pics you bazooka wielding men? Still reeling from the hangover or what? These drunkards I tell you!

I can see the pics - you may have to wait a while for them to load, though.

Some trackside action. Not very interesting if you dont know who's racing whom, but what the heck the pics are here. The highlight of the race was that a certain Bin Laden (Abdul Rahman) started at the end of the grid and finished 2nd after fighting his way through the grid.

Please note all track and stunt pics were taken from the top of the grandstands, which is not very close to the track in terms of distance:

Craig Jones and his stunts. Around this time a dust storm started brewing and visibility was cut down drastically - towards the end of the hastily terminated show we could hardly see the man on the track. Most of the pictures are cropped images from larger pictures which is all I could manage even at 300mm.

The dust storm signalled the start of winter and was followed by a brief drizzle, followed by thunderstorms later in the night.

More pics. Visibility from the stands was pretty dismal from this point - I found it easier to watch through the lens.

Last set of pics and you can see how bad things were in some of the pictures. This guy however kept doing his stunts even though he would've been blinded by the wind-driven sand in his open-face helmet:

You guys certainly had some fun. The pics are great given the distance from where you have shot them.

Some details of the pics above.


Set 1:
Pic 3: Guys returning from the training by Craig Jones which we missed.
Pic 4: That's Petra on the Buell. She has promised to invite me for the next riding event by Buell.
Pic 6: One of the 620 hp beasts used for the Speedcar series. The one where the likes of Johnny Herbert, Jean Alesi and Jacques Villeneuve are racing. The exhaust note of these cars is nothing short of orgasmic. I had a peak at the engine bay, it looked awesome but i didn't understand a jack of what i saw.

Set 2:
Pic 2/3: Thats the Trimontana Supercar from Spain. V12 mercedes engine which is capable of doing 0 - 100 in 3.5 secs and which can be further tweaked to do 2.5 secs. Two seater. 2 million AED / seat!

Steer, thanks for bringing the riding gear along. I was hoping atleast you could sit in instead of me. Next time!
