    Here's a group of random pics from some events I visited in mid - late 2008. I know the colour is completely rubbish in some of them, (usually due to erroneous exposure and my PP attempts to rectify that) but any comments on subject, composition etc always welcome ...

    Awesome-what a bunch of junkers!! Little European cars always crack me up, not that theere's anything wrong with them, but they're just so ugly most of the time.. We're just now figuring out in America that we need to downsize our cars. That's funny as hell! The rims on the car in 13 are hoot, as is the car in 23.. I wouldn't have that nice VW in with all those junkers.. I like your snaps-you got some real good action shots. Good shutter speed, etc..

    Thanks, actually these are older pics and I didn't use the flash with any of them ... but I may have PP'ed some of them to lighten up "the dark side" ;-)

    But I am determined to use the flash more this year (one of my many resolutions for 2009)

    Thanks :) Banger racing is the bottom (and cheapest) rung of motor racing so people often have little more than a moving chassis with an engine, always cool to see them try to straighten out major bodywork damage with big crowbars etc between rounds ;-)

    The VW was not from the same competition as the junkers, that was from a town based rally event called Racing Special which is basically a timed stage held on a course mapped out on an industria estate with a couple of jumps added.

    I love the action in 20 and 21 can really see the body roll and counter steer~!

    Thanks, I just wish I had got the backs of the cars a bit more in focus as well ...

    Thanks, I mostly used my Sigma 70-300 for these but the really close ones of the cars going past the barrier might have been with the Sigma 17-70, I'll have to dive into the archive to find that out ...
