MotoGP 2013 @ Laguna Seca

Although I had just been home for a little less than 3 days from covering the Sommet des Légendes event in Mont-Tremblant, Canada, my brother-in-law, Alex, invite Maria and I up to Monterey for the weekend. This trip included a day in San Francisco and race day at the MotoGP at Laguna Seca. Needless to say, we accepted his invitation.

Despite the one day at the track, I was able to capture a decent amount of images from both the outside of turn 5 and from the straight section between turns 1 & 2. With no credentials to get track side, I was still able to capture some rather tasty images of these cool motor racing bikes.

Below is a series of images I captured as Alvaro Bautista drops his #19 Go&Fun Honda as he entered turn 5 during the Sunday morning warm up.

The gallery includes a selection of images I captured on Sunday during the warm up and the race later that day.  Enjoy!
