Morning everyone !

Many thanks for all your comments & votes on yesterdays rally up-load !

Got some more Rally shots yesterday, had a great day, but this another from the second run on Thursday, thankfully it did actually stop chucking it down for this shot !

Sorry if I'm boring you with these shots, just got one or two more of my favourites to add, then I'll be back to normal. Could add them for weeks, but I won't ! I would'nt be that cruel, lol !

The rally is just so brilliant to watch, it looks exciting when you see it on TV, but it's nothing like actually being there ! Can't wait already for next year !

Hope you all have a good day !

Chris

An excellent series continues - I could certainly look at more and more! I haven't found anything on the tv; in any case the commentaries these days are more showbiz than rallying. Give me a first-class still like this any time: thank you!

Another cracking image, love the toning. Went on Sunday but how wrong did the weather forecasters get it!!! Horizontal rain pretty much all the way through the second run... Got some shots though, just got to get through 4 12 hour night shifts before I can process them properly.

Date for your diary 12-14 Nov. 2010, provisional date for next years Rally GB, it will be in Wales but venues to be confirmed.

Thanks Gez for your comments & Vote !
The weather was terrible, it's asking a lot to get any type of shot in conditions like that. Did'nt bother going to the top of the mountain on Sunday, had enough on Thursday, but did get some shots of both runs between stages on the top mountain road. Still chucking it down though !

Thanks for the info on next years Rally dates - suppose we can look forward to frost/snow next year then ! (Better than all that rain - at least our equipment will be ok). I think that will be the last Rally in Wales then. So will have to make the most of it.

Look forward to seeing your images - Chris

Thanks again - Chris
