A57 motorcycle racing shots

I recently upgraded from an a100 to the a57. I have a passion for autosports, motorcycle racing in particularly. I was concerned that the 57 would be difficult to use due to the "slide show" effect using sports mode. I have a cheap Sigma telephoto that I purchased about the time I acquired the a100. Most motorsports events are obstructed due to chain link fences. Here are some of my photos. I am quite happy with these. (I know they aren't even close to pro quality or to the photos I see here.)

Daytona, March 2014 (through the fence):

Brad Baker, National Champ:

Austin, TX, April 2014:

Vali Rossi, multi world champ:

The Doctor (same photo)

Dani Pedrosa (Dani Jet)

(I didn't know I had dust on the sensor, I just cleaned it when I saw it)

Marquez, current world champ:
