Scott Jones Down Under: Shooting Race Day At Phillip Island


An Australian champion on a Repsol Honda: Mick Doohan turned some laps at Phillip Island for the fans


Cal Crutchlow was not going to let anything as petty as a bout of bronchitis slow him down on Sunday


Never give up


Coming through: Pol Espargaro shot for 2nd into MG, and then disappeared. An epic display


It would be a good day for the Australian fans: Arthur Sissis kicked it off with his maiden podium in Moto3


Then Ant West scored his second podium in a row, with a brilliant ride to beat Marc Marquez


And finally, Stoner ruled the Island MotoGP, as he has done for the past 6 years


Battle of the Moto2 race: Scott Redding, Ant West, and Marc Marquez scrap over 2nd


Battle of the MotoGP race: Alvaro Bautista, Andrea Dovizioso and Stefan Bradl scrapped it out over 4th spot


Dani Pedrosa made a single mistake in 2012, pushing for a gap at the start of the race. He had no option but to try


6*1 + 10*2 + 1*DNF = 2012 MotoGP World Champion


Goodbye and thank you

Great photos as always.

I didn't bother taking a crap phone camera photo of Mick from the grandstand hoping that this would be here after seeing Scott's photos earlier in the week. Thanks Scott.

Battle shots

are fantastic - they must like you a lot to do laps for you...

Interesting difference in style between the new and old guard too in both shots - Dovi looks positively lazy! Hasn't he heard of mass de-centralisation?
