I am "out" of how to shoot rally in very low light conditions. Next weekend in Rovaniemi start http://www.arcticrally.fi/english/mainpage.html and there ain't daylight time too much...:confused: I might go there if weather forecast is reasonable..
With flash(or two), but how? Could some professionals help? :D
Ps. If someone need helps in Rally Finland, i try to help(i live abt. 4km from nearest stages..)

With flash(or two),Tough to say if I'd use them, but if I did, I'd try using one on the cam to trip the optical slave on one at the side. Try it on some traffic at the same time of "Day" & see what you think. Maybe gel one of them blue.
I'd pick my location carefully. You don't want the flash in the drivers eyes.
First though, try some high ISO & maybe a little motion blur.
Hopefully, someone more familiar with your conditions will chime in.

i love shooting at night... but it does get expensive.. get yourself a couple Canon EX flashes and some triggers like pocket wizards or the new Radio Poppers. and shoot away like it's daytime :)

Is it really a good thing to be shooting with flashes at a low light rally event? You'd want to set up your flashes well or else they'll be driving right into you!

the drivers don't even notice the flashes.
