2 Stroke picture of the day. Staying with Mallory 2010, all the motorcycles you have seen in the previous photographs have now been moved into the Holding Area to await their turn to be taken out on track. Not all of the machines are in this shot, but it gives you a good idea of what the Holding area is like positioned right alongside the track, with many more machines of different marque's and models out of view to the left of picture.
When this photo was taken you will notice riders were off their bikes and some had removed helmets and even jackets, it was a hot day and there had been an incident on track and the session in progress stopped, this could have been the result of an accident or sometimes oil dropped on the track that needed to be cleaned up, usually riders would be sitting on their machines waiting for the two signs at the front to be turned around for the riders to see, that would tell them to Start Engines....Gets a bit noisy at this stage, too noisy for anyone to tell you to start your engine, hence the signs...
