Everybody is probably sick of shots from the RAC but I thought I would post some anyway. The RAC has to be the best rally in the UK at present much better then that 12 car event down in Wales somewhere I've seen some brilliant action over the last few days and I'm absolutley knackered now so here are the photos

This is the same car that I posted shots of during a test earlier in the week but now sporting it's Eddie Stobart livery and I'm glad to say the driver Jimmy McRae went on to win the event.

Lovely looking Lancia Fulvia

Seen quite a bit of this Boxter lately and it made a nice contrast against all the hitoric Porsches competing this weekend.

I agree Ian, the rwd classics are alot more interesting than the modern fwd and most 4wd stuff, I just wish it ventured a bit further south, but I with defo make the effort next year if its running.

You've captured some great action in this series, and more importantly the Stratos at its best angle. Excellent.

Lovely images full of action, Ian.

I love the last shot with the reflection of the car in the puddle dont know why i just do.

I used to live in Hereford and they used to stop of at the football ground for the first service of the day. Loved wathcing them getting ready for the first stage and driving off.

They are a great set of pics there.

Fantastic work Ian, particularly the 2-wheeled Porsche and Jimmy McRae throwing up the mud. He was a bit lucky to win so i hear but after Stig's win a couple of years ago its the right result methinks :)

I doubt if anyone could get sick of seeing this sort of thing. Much more enjoyable than the Rally Of a bit of Wales could ever dream of being. Roll on 2007 !

Great shots Ian.

I'm afraid I didn't make it to Ae on Sunday morning. Was nightshift and didn't get away from work until 8 o'clock and was too knackered to drive down.
