'Welcome' to redlinesports.photography
A new website and a new name but certainly not "a new kid on the block". We will bring the latest news from the "racing world", Photo' Galleries full of images, while offering Professional Photographic Services to press, teams, sponsors, event organisers and public.
Owner, Charlie Hulse, in the past, owned and ran his own commercial photographic studio but has, for the last five years, worked solely within motorcycle racing, operating under another name which wasn't really appropriate to his passion for road racing. Hence the change to redlinesports, better reflecting the adrenaline fuelled sport to which, the majority of the images within these pages are dedicated. As the site develops we will also keep you informed of all the latest news about your favourite riders, teams and championships via 'RSS live feeds', while also offering top quality photographs from race meetings across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom, Ireland, the Isle of Man, and hopefully from further afield, event schedules permitting
There will be many galleries for you to 'browse' and the opportunity to obtain digital images Enjoy redlinesports.photography and please leave your comments on the Contact Page and help us to develop this site as 'you' would like. We will be offering presentation printing, canvas bonding, mounting and framing at exceptionally competitive prices through business partners providing a comprehensive service for all corporate and private.

www.motomatters.com (KROPOTNIK THINKS)
English but based in Netherlands. MotoGP & WSBK only but has Matt Oxley a 'Guest Blogger' regularly and superb photos. David Emmett's site is the most informative and insightful on the 'web', a great read
USA based with an obvious bias toward American readers but a superb website
USA again, covering 'Road Racing' more than other US based sites....
Excellent site with great all round appeal from MotoGP to club racing and everything in between from David Miller and the team
Great 'site covering road racing everywhere
The only motor cycle racing publication promoted by the ACU covering ALL road racing club to MotoGP
Covers all motor sport but has lots of dedicated bike sections to choose from. Our RSS feed, on the left is 'piggybacked' from Crash.net and BSN
