A Subaru Impreza in full flight after hitting a jump on the forest track on the Greystokes Rally 2009 . I spent a very wet Sunday deep in a forest up in The Lakes with three members of Killamarsh Camera Club. Extremely difficult to get a good view, as the tracks were narrow with deep ditches either side, but found a great spot to capture some of the more committed drivers. Pleased with this as it is shown as taken, no crop!

Returned exhausted and unbelievably muddy, but a great day out Smile

Not bad Martin maybe if you keep at it you could even make it as a motor sport photographer. Have you recovered from all the walking and diving out of the way.
