    From AutoMotoPhoto 5037 "likes" as of March 10, 2012It's been a few weeks since we passed this little milestone of 5000 "Likers".

  3. Andrew Wheeler, AutoMotoPhoto and MotoGP. Part3 Catching Up.
    From AutoMotoPhoto Some of you who are "Likers" on the Andrew Wheeler - AutoMotoPhoto page here on Facebook would have seen or viewed the individual rider galleries I put together to keep us warm and interested over those cold winter nights...(doesn't that sound all squishy warm and fuzzy?) Well, I figured that not everyone is on Facebook, and so they're worth sharing here.  I'll most likely be adding a few more to the Facebook page between now and Qatar just to get people in the mood for the new season, but in
  4. Andrew Wheeler, AutoMotoPhoto and MotoGP. Part2 Catching Up.
    From AutoMotoPhoto Casey Stoner MotoGP Wold Champion Valencia 2011Over 105 motorcycling events (and some retro car images from CART and F1) are now contained within the cyber-walls of my now up-to-date website, AutoMotoPhoto.  Possibly one of the largest publicly accessible collection of motorcycle racing images on the web.  Covering more than a handful of races from all three major racing series that I have been fortunate enough to cover including, AMA, World Superbike (WSBK) and of course MotoGP.  I typically like to up date the last few races of the year in
  5. Andrew Wheeler, AutoMotoPhoto and MotoGP. Part1 Catching Up.
    From AutoMotoPhoto My beautiful friend - EmilyI wouldn't normally share this sort of stuff on here, however, it's important to me, and without Emily I wouldn't be doing this in the first place so I feel a short post, and update might be in order.  It's been a few hectic and busy weeks...albeit at home.  As some of you may or may not know my wife Emily was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer during the week between Christmas and New Years. We have shared the experiences on my personal Facebook page and
  6. 58 of #58 - The Book
    From AutoMotoPhoto 58 of #58 - Marco SimoncelliThere has been so much going on in my life recently, especially with my wife Emily's health that I have neglected to update "BlogWorld" with this little book I put together of pictures I have taken of Marco Simoncelli from 2008 through to Malaysia, 2011. It's my little tribute if you like, to someone who didn't follow the corporate model, but was a true racer, with that Barry Sheene flamboyance that seems to have been lost due to everyone worrying about their sponsors.  Possibly the

  8. Josh Hayes MotoGP - Cycleworld - Racewatch
    From AutoMotoPhoto A lightning update here....My good friend Josh Hayes (accompanied by his wife Melissa) were initially invited by Tech3 Yamaha to ride their bikes following the race weekend at the final MotoGP round at Valencia in Spain last November. After Colin Edwards was injured in the collision that involved Marco Simoncelli and Valentino Rossi, the test ride became a race ride....I photographed and interviewed Josh Hayes for Cycleworld Magazine over the race weekend on his thoughts about Simoncelli, Edwards etc, and his emotions about the opportunity and how he approached the entire adventure...

  14. From happy to sad in less than 120 minutes. Goodbye Marco.
    From AutoMotoPhoto I never knew him that well.....Marco Simoncelli locking down the 250cc Championship in Phillip Island 2008..but when you travel constantly with the "MotoGP" circus you become a familiar face. Over time you'll receive a "ciao" or a "bongiorno" when passing in the paddock in the morning, during the evening or even as these people walk through the media centre. However, it was in Phillip Island in parc ferme where Marco recognised me when I asked him to look down into my camera for a goofy shot of him waving.  He

  19. Jorge Lorenzo, Casey Stoner...from Misano to Aragon. The Renaissance, castles and the countryside...
    From AutoMotoPhoto Valentino Rossi at his "home" race wearing his special liveried Misano special helmetI love castles.GradaraSo it's rather interesting that we go from the Adriatic and the home of Lucrezia Borgia (and all that lovely warmth and kindness as the perfect dinner host she was) to Aragon, where the two regions are actually loosely connected by families marrying one off to the other.  I love this region of Italy, the coastline that becomes extremely dramatic not too far inland with huge outcrops of rocks topped with castles.
