That was pretty close... I like the series of images showing what he actually took, and teh video at the end just in case the viewer is in any doubt as to how close it was!

The image of the spinning rear wheel is the best (though not the sharpest Wink ) You can even see shards of the concrete wall from the impact...

Scary stuff.

There's another video knocking about the internet of a guy on a bridge just as a rally car slides out of control past him. Misses him by inches...

Quote:...but he kept the viewfinder of his camera clamped closely to his eye

That's what it's all about... well done Andy.

Great sequence of shots, not sure at what point I would have bottled, but I doubt I would have got the 'tyre' pic Wink

I agree, i have been stood next to togs at Croft that duck as stuff comes our way, the idea is KNOW YOUR SPORT, and how to react and move.
I was at a drifting competition on Teesside and a driver lost control and headed right for me then stopped when I took the camera from my eye the car was about a foot away, looked farther at 17mm.
Hes a brave guy non the less.
