Scott Jones Photography and PHOTO.GP are proud to announce a very special limited edition print: Casey Stoner, Elbow Down at Catalunya
PHOTO.GP’s definitive image from the 2011 season features reigning World Champion and soon-to-retire Casey Stoner as he drags his elbow around Turn 5 at Catalunya. This is an edition limited to 27 copies, signed by Casey at Laguna Seca in July, 2012, as shown below.
Format and Size: Prints in this limited edition are 24×16 inches on lustre paper, mounted on 3mm Styrene and ready to mat and frame to the customer’s taste. Each print is hand-numbered in the lower right hand corner, 1 through 27, and signed by Casey.
When this image was first published on MotoMatters.com, it spread like wildfire and within days we at PHOTO.GP were receiving requests for copies from other journalists, colleagues at HRC, and eventually from Casey himself. The black and white version is still in use as the desktop wallpaper by several of Casey’s HRC crew. At Silverstone, 2011, Adrianna told Scott that they were still getting copies of the image emailed to them “about every five minutes.”
Just as many MotoGP photographers made sure to get their own versions of Scott’s 2009 glowing brake discs shot from Qatar when the series returned the next year, many lined up in Barcelona this season to catch Casey with his elbow down. Riders, too, emulated Casey’s extreme lean angle, once he’d shown them that this track has just the right combinations of turn radius, camber, and grip to get one’s elbow on the ground.
But this is the image from 2011, Casey’s final World Championship, wearing his trademark 27, and showing just what has made Casey Stoner a unique rider among the very best in the world, pushing his equipment and himself to the limits of each, and returning to pit lane as the only rider wearing a hole in the sleeve of his leathers. For fans of Casey Stoner and the one-of-a-kind talent he brought to Grand Prix motorcycle racing, this print, bearing Casey’s personal touch and signature, is the collectible item with which to remember this unique rider. 27 people in the world will own this piece of history. Will you be one of them?
