    I like the look of #2 .
    When they had the world champs around Raglan a friend let me park my van on his farm - got some nice shots from there

    Many stages still held in Raglan. This is were one of the best stages is, Whaanga Coast is an epic place which is nice and fast!

    I wasn't anywhere near crowds when I took pictures last time and the locals I think were just put off by having their road closed up
    I set up my van on the side of the road including a platform on the roof for my chair



    In some places I was on the shade side so I set up the D50 with flash



    A walk up the hill and there's a jump shot



    There were a handful of people standing around in some spots but otherwise it was one of those places where you are 'locked in' for the day .

    Great images. I have one I would like to post but am having difficulty finding the instructions on how to do this.
    Is there a very kind person out there that can set me on the right track.
    Being Senior and blonde creates major difficulties

    Cool motion blur, Brett, #5 is my favourite.

    You must have been nervous about the car making a safe landing (and avoiding a collision with you) in the second one, Desmond!

    Thanks , I got a few more from that spot ...





    Of course I had to be a little 'daring' when getting shots with my compact ....


    But missed a few due to chimping

    Awesome set of images Brett. 2 and 4 are money shots for sure, but I love them all. Great colour and panning. Really shows the speed. I just got back from this myself, drove up from Wellington - will start a thread shortly too.

    Desmond - looks like a great set-up. Whats with the guy on the track, I wouldn't take my chances... Reminds me a bit of the shots that used to come out of Europe of the sea of photogs parting before the cars.

    That's me clowning around . I set the camera up on a tripod and got some shots of myself an hour before the race started - then got some shots of the cars coming around the corner and did some photoshop
