Morning vs Afternoon:
Proper rallying weather! A good mix of everything. I kept an eye on the event from a distance (that and Galway - weather was dreadful there too). The sound of engines barking as cars come through a forest stage is hard to beat.

Didn't manage to get to this event, but have been plenty of times before; I've always enjoyed spectating in Wass.

A little late, here are my pictures from Brands Hatch: https://bit.ly/3GuSzJu

I shot the first two stages at the rally stage, but discarded all those from the first stage because of the mist. About half this album is pictures from stage 2, with cones painstakingly edited out (I hate traffic cones, why is it necessary to use them to mark the egde of a perfectly obvious rally course?)!

The rest are from the sneaky angle of the cars emerging through the trees as they returned from the rally stage and of the chicane at the top of Paddock Hill Bend. I did take more pictures of cars on the regular circuit, but these just felt like ordinary Brand Hatch pictures, not very rallyish, so I discarded them too.

Overall I like the mud, trees and grime of the rally stage better. I think rallying is infecting me .

Thanks - was waiting for stage maps to be available. Any idea if we can get round to outside of Coram in the morning given that they are using the service road for SS1-4 ?

I was hoping you’d know! This will be my first time at this event. I’m keen to get pictures of the cars on those access roads and the other gravelly bits.

For Brands MSV publish their 'spectator information' close to the event and that has a map showing the spectator areas - maybe they'll issue one for Snetterton too? Hopefully the weather doesn't intervene - I'd have thought they'd be doing setup on Friday but the weather looks awful (and cones certainly won't stay where you put them in those winds!).

A sample set from Snetterton yesterday - lots more to work through. Sunny (but very chilly) start to the day gave way to rain by lunchtime. Didn't go through to Coram until SS5 in the afternoon and I think I was the only one shooting from there. Worth it for different shots.

Nice sets dwh43scale, saw some of the livestream and it looked like you had a very wet day: gave you some good watersplash shots though!

Well, they say there is no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing. Grateful for the rain cover on the camera ! Hate standing out in it but love the output !

Better get on with the morning shots now ...

Every trip to a circuit rally gives me nightmares involving cones for a week .

A necessary evil, I fear.

Better than the pallets that Goodwood used for the South Down Stages a couple of years back; fell over at the slightest hesitation.

Here's some pictures from Riponian Stages a few weeks ago: https://bit.ly/3JXir2M

All taken during the two stages in Wass Moor. The morning run in bright gorgeous sunlight, the afternoon run after a hailstorm and with snow falling on the last few cars .

This was a round of the British Historic Rally Championship so there's a lot of Escorts! Also a Datson, some old BMWs and one or two other rarities, alongsde the modern Imprezas and R5s.

A really enjoyable day, I hope you enjoy the pictures!
