I can't speak for where the tv cameras are positioned, but lots of photographs are taken in that last righthander--in the morning. In the afternoon, when most races go off, the light is wrong. Also, it's not a corner where you can get more than one bike in the frame, which is what you are looking for in "race" shots.

Actually, I tried to get a Supersport race shot from that section, but by the time I got my grid and start shots and walked that distance, young Mr. Roberts had gapped the field and there was no group shot to be had.
