I was going to put captions on these but there are so many of them, I've only done a few and you can guess the rest, :rolleyes: :D. The difference in the lighting between the centre of the track and the edges certainly made setting the exposure in full 'Manual' mode a bit of a challenge (that's my excuse in now for any that are slightly less than perfect, :lol:) but here you are in all your glory.

The practice session gets underway






Spot the rally driver!

Forming up for the first timed heat














If I didn't know you better, Aimee, I'd say that was a "Where are you Steven, you're claimed pal" look. :lol:


"You can't hide - I know you're out there!"


"Calm down, calm down" Looking at this, you'd think you were racing each other or something.






First lap and 'Mr Drifter' is in action again already

Don't know if that was "Sorry" or "Get out of my way", :lol:










Let's go for a demon overtake down the inside........


.....which seemed to pay off






Then it was time for the first corner mad scramble all over again at the start of the second timed heat


"See, I can do opposite-lock on this corner too!"

A few different driving styles in evidence, from the 'lean forward I'm coming to get you' stance.....


......through the slightly more relaxed 'go with the flow'......


.....to the totally 'laid back and watch it all unfold' version


So, which one are you?

It was nip and tuck all the way to the wire......










....... with Chick snatching back the lead on the last lap to cross the line 0.5 seconds ahead of Philip


To the victors, the spoils. Philip, Chick and Graham collect their 'pots'


All the combatants get a taste of the podium

Thanks for posting David, some cracking pics in there.
It was a terrific event, with the racing a lot closer than previous years. I got a great start in the final only to be "taken out" by Gergely and Steve, took me far to long to shake them, but once I had I managed to almost get up to Philip and Chick. I reckon 3 or 4 more laps and the result may have been slightly different.
A great race though, just a shame we had such a poor turn out for it (compared to previous years)

Great pics David. Was such at great day, sorry I wasnt my usual talkative self didnt get much sleep the night before and was worried about my dog.

That look on my face wasnt cause I was after Steven, it was more "how many more laps is there so I can get out of this seat!" I was actually squeezed in, paying for it now my legs, arms ands sides are killing me still haha.
