Things are heating up at the Island

October 24, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

We arrived today at Phillip Island to an atmosphere heavy in anticipation. The bridge across from San Remo is adorned with 2012 MotoGP flags. Cowes seems poised ready to explode. With record crowds expected for what looks like being a dry race day, locals and visitors alike are hoping, almost demanding another win from Stoner. His name is everywhere from shop windows to the T-Shirt and memorabilia vendors displaying "Farewell Casey".

Due to the forecast weather conditions, which frankly look dreadful for the next two days (Thursday and Friday), the presentation to Casey Stoner scheduled for tomorrow will now be conducted in the Pit Roof VIP Village. Following the presentation photographers are invited to turn three for a "photograph opportunity". 

A short while later the Aussie boys including Stoner, Ant West, Arthur Sissis and Jack Miller will try their hand a trout fishing at Rhyll. Hoping that the forecast rain doesn't cause organisers to cancel.

The rest of Thursday will be spent lurking around the MotoGP and support class pits trying to catch a word with, and get a pic of the riders, teams and other personalities. Speaking of personalities Aussies own Lauren Vickers, ASBK media star, fiancee of CRT rider Randy De Puniet, and international model will be working hard at what she does best. Including hopefully gracing this blog!
