Default British Rallycross

Went to Lydden Hill yesterday for Rounnd one of the British Rallycross champiomship, day started off really misty, when i first entered for those that know the circuit you could only just see the toilet blocks. This soon cleared and left some glorius sunshine (Yes i am slightly tanned today). Will do 12 pics as it was a rather frantic day with briliant action and dont think i would do the event justice by just posting 6.

#1 Ulrik Linnemen in amongst the mist

great shots, those old mini's were tiny, i drove one in 1967 until Lord Lucas forced me to retire it (all the electrics failed and I got nabbed driving it at night without lights on a freeway)
