No sooner had MotoGP departed from the Phillip Island GP Circuit than the WSBK crew took over for their final test of the pre-season. Round one of the 2016 WSBK championship begins on Friday!

At great expense, PhotoGP arranged for Steve English to remain in Australia until he begins his new career as one of the official WSBK commentators alongside Greg Haines. How he will continue to produce his high level of photos from the commentary booth is a mystery we will watch unfold with great interest. Thanks again for these shots, Steve!
