Following on the the up close with Valentino - https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=241040

All shots taken with 20D, Sigma 120-300, and Kata702 rain jacket... shot less than 100 shots, which is a record for me! (as in low)

Here's a few action shots.. I only stayed for one stage, SS8, but managed to meet some of the drivers before SS6, including Rossi, a great public figure.
