This is a really nice selection of shots from the RAC. I particularly like the after dark shots from Olivers Mount - the colour in the sky is really what makes them for me.
The RAC rally has a unique atmosphere about it which I very much enjoy. However, unless they can create bigger entries and variety of cars (this year really was a bit death by Escort) then I'd stop short of saying it's the #1 rally. Fix those two things and keep the same format though, and I really do think they would have the best rally in the country by far.
Hi Simon, yes the Ollies mount shots were great with the background colours and i hear what you say about the entries but following the rally over the weekend was just like the 80's, top notch

Very nice photos. I particularly like the evening and night shots as I know how difficult these can be to get right. Well done.
Many thanks Kiwi, really happy how the night ones came out

Darren, I've genuinely been looking forward to seeing your shots from the R.A.C and they certainly don't disappoint.
The sunset shots are superb but if pressed to pick a favourite, it would have to be the shot of Collins' Ascona. Lots of energy in that shot and I love the look on his face shows how everything is under control.
Cheers Rhodri, as i admire your work i appreciate your comments

Nice set of shots Darren. Not done an RAC yet, wish it did a few midlands stages.
Thanks Nick but all i will say is, do an RAC rally and you will be hooked

This is even by your high standards a spectacular set,a fabulous mix of shots ,and top drawer.
There is nothing to critique,they are all wonderful.
If pushed would pick out 7 as my fave but 5 is terrific,sharp,no distractions,great lighting , 8 is a fantastic flash shot,no question.
Brilliant work ,and a very high benchmark series.
Cheers Pons, as i always say your comments and very much appreciated as i think your comments read my mind, maybe one day we'll bump into each other

Sensational set of pics.
Nothing quite like an Escort with a bit of opposite lock.
I also don't mind the tyre smoke peeling off the Porsche - cool.
Cheers Phil, agree on the MkII's, there will never be a greater rally car, EVER. and yes Mr Lepley certainly knows how to lay the rubber down
