So I moved to SoCal recently and I’ve so far only gone to Glen Helen and Pala. But I heard Wednesday at Milestone is a good day to go see the pros practicing, and I wanted to go shoot some photos but I think I remember seeing something about milestone banning photographers from the track. Do I have this right, or would I be able to go shoot out there?

I see people with green vests out on the track other then the flaggers. Sometimes looks like they might be parents. Id just call and ask what the policy is.

All the photogs I saw on Saturday were on the side of the track behind the fence and didn't see any spectators out on the infield either.

This is correct and they have a big sign you ride by going onto the track. This is the sign.

We're able to shoot on the track still but Milestone has to be listed under your business insurance to be allowed to have a vest. I will say, since they went to this system, I haven't had a near death experience with a "trainer" running out in front of me or standing in a corner...

Last time I rode there I about used a mini-kids dad as a berm as we was standing in the middle of the track looking the wrong way upon exiting a corner. Luckily, after the next turn I had a feeling the kid was gonna dart off the track and go back to pops. Which he did, cutting completely across from right to left in front of me as I checked up and waited for it to happen. Definitely glad I was paying attention....

^^Yea it was pretty nuts out there with all the people on the track before they put those signs up. I do miss some of the hot girls standing out there tho.

Thanks for the response, ML. I was hoping you would post in here. I called the track up this morning to check, and you do indeed have to have a photography license to shoot, which I don't haha. Are there any other tracks you recommend to shoot at and when the pro practice days are?

You can shoot photos from behind the fence. But to be on the track shooting, you need liability insurance, check in at the front office and wear a vest while on the track.

Are there worthwhile angles from the fence? I have a 70-200mm, so distance isn't a huge concern for me

There’s plenty of jumps right along the fence line that you’d need a wide angle for.
