Whenever I watch these kids go around their special short circuit on their tiny motorbikes, sounding like a swarm of angry bees, I can't help but smile and applaud.

Photographed at the Hastings Valley Motor Cycle Club track at Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia.

Canon EOS 40D with Canon 100-300mm USM lens: RAW, f/5 @ 1/100sec, 115mm, ISO 200, Continuous focus, High speed motor drive.

    PS:
These kids are all as keen as mustard and rarin' to go. Officially they don't have "races", they have "demonstrations" but as you see in this shot they certainly have a competitive streak out on the track.

Love this, Dennis.
You have captured them as they test their racing and riding skills. They are competitive and to them the race is on. :)
Their bikes certainly sound like buzzing bees. :)
