A spot of motorsport.

Post by Richard C » Sat May 15, 2010 8:19 pm

Had a trip out this morning to watch the plains Rally in Mid Wales Nr Machynlleth.

Hadn't been to a Rally since the RAC in Kielder in around 1994, anyway I took Liam (my eldest) and we had a great time. We did get a little lost and we did end up walking quite a lot but the atmosphere was great.

I took some photo's, I have not done anything lik this before so they are a little hit and miss.


Modern 4x4 supercars.

Some stunning photo's there Richard, well done.

The last photo is a Opel Kadett Coupe, basically Germanys equivalent of our Vauxhall Chevette, although the "shove-it" never came in a coupe body. Rare to see one of those standard, let alone rally prepped.

Stunning pix. The Chevette looks awesome, used to have a full replica :D .

The Opel Kadette is super rare.

I haven't been to a rally before, and really must go. This mix of WRC, old group B, and Old Skool cars looks awesome. Rally drivers are _the_ best drivers in the world IMO
