Instead of just standing at a couple of corners and shooting the same scene every time I decided to get in and around the pits and mix it up with the competitors and spectators at a rally event I attended yesterday

All shots with Pentax K-5 and 55 200 and the Pentax Q and 03 fish eye lens

Great set, #3 is my fav, lovely sense of movement, and a great mix of different types of shots and views.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Great shots - shame about the guy under the Sunbeam showing everyone how not to be safe whilst under a car - I accept that there could be axle stands out of shot though.

I love the tyre wall shots as well - nice set


Sorry for the health and safety rant but I know of too many people killed or injured through failing to observe the basics
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Could that be why you are not one with his neck under a car tyre

I love the different nature of some of these shots such as the couple peering under the bonnet of the escort - the more I look at them the better they are

Great shots. The fisheye has been a useful lens to have with you too - like the variety of shots you have been able to take because of it.

I'm not the least into motor sport but nevertheless, I enjoyed these.
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Some very nice stuff there, Alistair - and converting the Chevette to mono seems somehow appropriate. I attempted to cover a Brands Hatch meeting in this manner yesterday, concentrating on the paddock for a fair while before heading trackside, but the weather was crap and almost everybody was hidden away behind closed awnings.

I always enjoy your street portraits and look forward to seeing more of your motorsport shots during the year.

I'm guessing it'll be indoors and feature a certain small person!
