2016 WRC Wales Rally GB
The 2016 WRC Wales Rally GB is the UK’s round of the FIA World Rally Championship.
It is held every year through the fast flowing forests tracks of South & North Wales. Held 3 days featuring 22 special stages covering over 200 competitive miles through these legendary Welsh forests. The weather can play a massive part in the this rally. These forest tracks can be slippery at the best of times, but heavy rain, frost & ice can make the surface treacherous.
Sports Photography is all about capturing the mixture of action & emotions for me.
I read somewhere that there are 3 main images to get when shooting Golf, The Backswing, The Follow Through & The Player’s Reaction…. Action & Emotion!
Coming from a Rallying background, I have an insight in what is going through the Driver’s head. The concentration in his eyes searching out the line through the bend. The Service crew desperately trying to rebuild the car when the driver didn’t quite pick the right one!! ….and the ‘Trying Hard’ marks where he couldn’t go any faster! …. Action & Emotion!
