This is a picture of Scott Redding walking down the pit lane access road at Losail International Circuit in Qatar prior to the opening round of the MotoGP, Moto2 and Moto3 2013 season.
The place is absolutely buzzing at the moment with the races scheduled for this evening 7 April 2013. Get yourself up to Losail International Circuit to watch the races if you have time!
As you can see there are TV interviews, MotoGP riders running around, generally just people and pandemonium everywhere, and then I saw Scott Redding just strolling through the crowds as cool as ice.
In the time it took to get my camera sorted, he had stopped to casually chat with various riders, an Ohlin’s technician and Chris Bell, a QMMF QIRRCH rider.
Scott is currently competing in Moto2 riding for Marc VDS Racing Team with Mika Kallio.

Anyway, I just thought this shot was kinda awesome and a bit different to the usual images you might see.
I find it quite intriguing that he can be so cool and calm one minute nonchalantly wandering down the access road, and then out on track about an hour later I got a shot of Scott doing this…incredible!
I’ll have to check but I think he qualified in fourth and he looks to be bang on race pace. In my opinion he’s always been ‘one to watch’, or at least I’ve always enjoyed following his career, but I think this season might hopefully prove a good one for him. Good luck Scott Redding!
