Pictures from Cadwell Park: https://bit.ly/3oFDxuK

Most of these are from the area around Hall Bands, where the elevation changes, trees, red leaves on the ground and light made for glorious photo opportunities. I did take more pictures aroind the circuit but they were less 'rallyish' so got left on the cutting room floor . My first time at Cadwell and very glad I went - it is beautiful!

Next up, RAC, but probably not till after Christmas as there's a lot to get through!

Much quicker than expected, here's a big album of pictures from the Roger Albert Clark historic rally at the end of November: https://bit.ly/31MDeG0

These were taken at one Sunday afternoon stage in Dyfnant and two stages on Monday in Crychan on overcast, grimy days in the Welsh forests. Both afternoon stages ran late, into the gloom, though it wasn't quite as dark as these pictures suggest!

These are proper rally pictures: gnarled-up gravel, filthy cars, lights on, going sideways. The second Crychan stage was the last of the whole event and I was close to the finish, so the cars were cheered home after a pretty epic few days. One broke down and was fixed by the co-driver before being push-started by spectators. I was closer to the track than usual and got regularly showered with gravel, collecting a couple of bruises as souvenirs of a great day.

This album is quite repetitive! Of the 140-odd starters, around 100 were Escorts! And I wasn't able to move around much on the stages so it's mostly one shot coming towards me and one going away, x3 stages.

My drive home in the gloom included a 30-minute drive on a single-track across a military range in fog so thick I couldn't see more than 10m. I feel like I've properly earned my rally spectator badge with this trip and I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Nice! Thanks for sharing - in amongst the Escorts there is some variety too - although the sight of mk3 Astras in an event for 'historics' makes me feel old!

Proper rally = dark forest, spot lights on I always admire the optimism of crews that run with the spot lights fitted all day, we tend to attach them at the last possible moment - just in case we wipe them out before we need them.

I'd say you've earned that badge - gloomy conditions, deep in the forest, long trek to and from the action. I'm assuming you were wearing a bobble hat

Ofc! I’ve stopped short of getting one of the all-in-one romper suits with reflective strips, but I have bought some warm & waterproof gloves which have fold-back tips so only the finger and thumb I need for picture-taking get frozen rather than my whole hand .

Looks like Yves Matton has stepped down from his role as FiA Rally Director; hmm, so introduces the new regs, can't attract new manufacturers, and hears the new FiA President thinks they're a mistake.....

So decides to leave.....marvellous....

My final event and photo album of the year, the Dukeries Rally at Donington: https://bit.ly/3qEhBji

This was a pretty grimy and cold day and although Donington is generally good for pictures, the stages for this event were very cluttered with cones and offered little by way of interesting angles. The exception was the dirt section in the middle of the track, from which the first half of this album is drawn. Looking at the always-terrific photos from dw43scale above, I missed some good shots further round the circuit.

I realise I'm not selling this very well! Anyway, enjoy!

Nice!!

I recall going to the Dukeries when it was a forest event, and spending the day in Sherwood Pines.....it was nearly always sunny and warm, and you'd be covered in dust. And then the Forestry pulled the plug........all for one day of rallying.
