Got back from yesterday's Rallye Sunseeker smothered in mud (trainers, jeans, coat, camera and car!!) but still, that's the fun of rallying I guess :) Anyway it was my first Sunseeker and I must admit I really enjoyed it. We managed to make it to 3 stages, SS5 Silverstone Rally School, SS10 Wareham and SS14 Shannon.

As for the photos, for once I'm actually quite happy with them. I find rallying much harder than circuit racing because the light fluctuates through the trees and also you only have 1 chance to nail the car. Before I've always been slightly disappointed with my rally photos but this time I'm pretty happy. Still, could do with a proper flashgun as the onboard flash isn't much help in the dark!!

Here's a few compressed "forum friendly sized" photos...

#1 The crazy Peugeot 306 Cosworth!!! I want one!

#2 This EVO6 got a bit close to the crowd for comfort!

Nice shots! I bet it is hard to get a good side or rear view...

Cheers. A side-on pan isn't too much of a problem but I didn't have a short enough lens on to do one, a rear shot always runs the risk of being sprayed with gravel / mud which I didn't fancy much. I'll probably give it a go next time I do a rally though - good to get a bit of variety.

Cheers
