"VR46 Elbow Down"
This unique image of The Doctor Valentino Rossi was captured during the qualifying session at Catalunya in 2009; it is the only time that Rossi has been snapped with his Dainese leather-clad elbow dragging along the asphalt.
The nine-time world champion liked the image so much that it became his mobile phone wallpaper! ‘Elbow Down’ quickly established itself as one of the most iconic and talked about images of Rossi’s illustrious Yamaha era.
Possibly the MotoGP racing moment of the 2010 season in what MCN has dubbed the Race of the Year. Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo clash during the closing stages of round 14 at Motegi, and Martin was once again "In the right place at the right time," to capture this memorable scene.
The win had gone away from the two Yamaha riders, but pride was at stake for the final step on the podium. Determined to stamp his authority over the champion elect Lorenzo, Rossi forced his way through in an epic last lap battle to claim third.
Martin Heath says: "I get lots of inquiries from people wanting to purchase my work, so I wanted to give something back to the fans this year at Christmas and make it affordable but at the same time very collectible and unique. Hence, this one-off offer to celebrate Valentino’s Yamaha Years that have brought me great pleasure and many photographic memories."
"VR46 Elbow Down" and "The Pass" are available now to order direct from Martin Heath Photography.
