Just a swift half a dozen from me (not the first time i've said that today :D )

A mixture of MK 1 & 2s, some not particularly famous and a few Stars in unreasonably priced cars...

#1 Jimmy McRae in Dalby Forest on the 2006 RAC Rally. (20D/Sigma 70-200 f2.8 )

IMAGE: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.hubbert/Pics/Other/Escorts/IMG_2600.jpg

#2 Can't remember the crew's names but this is still one of my favourite rally shots. (20D/Sigma 70-200 f2.8 )
IMAGE: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.hubbert/Pics/Other/Escorts/IMG_2610.jpg

#3 Malcolm Wilson in Langdale on the 2008 RAC..(1DMK2N/Sigma 120-300)
IMAGE: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.hubbert/Pics/Other/Escorts/RAC%20Langdale-0018.jpg

#4 Some say the bloke in white on Top Gear is little more than an imposter, whilst others say the driver of this MK1 is a Rallying Legend. All we know is, he's called Stig...Blomqvist that is. (1DMK2N/Sigma 120-300)
IMAGE: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.hubbert/Pics/Other/Escorts/Robin%20Hood%20-0027.jpg

#5. One from the archive. This one is on the 2005 RAC at Croft, taken with my now departed 20D and 100-400L.
IMAGE: http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.hubbert/Pics/Other/Escorts/_MG_5766.jpg

#6 And a real rarity for a Rally shot from me, yes, it's a Pan ! Same kit as #5 above too..and sun at Croft in November !

Mk 2,Semmonka.
SemmonkA,Excellent shot,no co driver ?
Pons

Thanks for the info.
True, no co driver. Its called rally sprint in here. They drive about 5km long route 2 times and see who is the fastest.
As there is no co driver they just have to memorize the route. First round they normally go pretty carefully but the
second lap is 110%. Normally many of them will end up upside down ;)

Darren, great shots. #2 looks like there is no rear suspensions at all :D
