Alex Rain­nie wins Ca­role Nash MCN pho­to­graphic com­pe­ti­tion

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Alex Rain­nie who has been crowned Bri­tain’s best am­a­teur bike pho­tog­ra­pher after tak­ing top spot in Motofoto – the com­pe­ti­tion run by MCN and bike in­sur­ance spe­cial­ist Ca­role Nash.

Cho­sen ahead of hun­dreds of ri­val en­trants, Alex’s evoca­tive shot de­picts a vin­tage Nor­ton ren­dered in moody mono­chrome.

The re­sult was an­nounced on the Ca­role Nash In­sur­ance Con­sul­tants stand at Mo­tor­cy­cle Live last week with WSB and BSB stars Jonathan Rea and Leon Haslam on hand to of­fer con­grat­u­la­tions.

Alex said: “I felt quite ner­vous as I was wait­ing to hear the re­sults and I was ab­so­lutely stunned when I found out I had won! It was amaz­ing to meet Leon and Jonathan and felt very sur­real to hear them dis­cussing my photo. I’d like to thank ev­ery­one at Ca­role Nash for mak­ing my day at Mo­tor­cy­cle Live so great. I’m ab­so­lutely over the moon with my win and it’s a day I’ll never for­get.”

As well as the ku­dos of win­ning, Alex re­ceived a Tomtom Rider 410 Pre­mium plus Ban­dit (worth £800) plus a cheque for £1000.

Rob­bie Thomp­son, from Falkirk, was run­ner up with his star­tling shot of his bike parked up at the Kelpies in Scot­land. He re­ceived a Tomtom Rider 410 EU worth £319.99 and a cheque for £600.

In third place was Matt Gar­diner who cap­tured Mo­togp hero Scott Red­ding in full flight at Sil­ver­stone. Matt, from Jersey, re­ceived a Tomtom Rider 40 WE worth £279.99 and a cheque for £400.

Dou­ble World Su­per­bike cham­pion Jonathan Rea, who is a Ca­role Nash Am­bas­sador, said: “There were so many amaz­ing pho­tos and I loved Matt’s Moto GP shot!”
