Alan Healey Memorial Rally Cadwell Park 9th April 2017

Clear blue skies and sun all day long - with the possible exception of Angelsey I don't think theres a more scenic track in the UK. It was a well attended setting for the Alan Healey Memorial Cadwell Park Stages Rally, the final round of the Motorsport News Circuit Rally Championship. I'm not a regular rally goer so it made a pleasant change to try something a little different.

First stop was the chicane between the Mountain and Mansfield. Decent shots were possible but glare on the windscreen obscured the driver and co-driver a little. Andy Graham / Ian Owen, Ford Escort MK2 RS

On to the start I tried to capture wheelspin as the cars set off but couldn't quite get it right. Eventual overall winners Chris West / Keith Hounslow, Peugeot 306 Maxi

Theres always some good photographic opportunities along the Hall Bends. The cars travelling in the reverse direction were light over the crests adding a little interest. Stuart Ranby / Ian Bass, Ford Escort MKII

While at the Hall Bends I tried to get some shots of thro the cutouts and open windows as the cars passed. I liked this one the most although unfortunately theres no impression of speed. Chris Bellamy / Ashlie Thorpe Honda Civic VTI

This sharp turn caused problems for a number of cars

Catching up with a slower car this looked like it could end badly
