Well, wasn't today fun :D After last year, the organisers of RallySA decided they couldn't be bothered setting up the major spectator park at Mt Crawford or whereever the hell it is, so for anyone still interested in the event it was pretty much free reign as there weren't many officials around. I went to 3 different areas, and by far the best was where the spectator park WOULD be had this been last year. With all the plastic barriers and most of the tape gone, it made for much better photography! There were only 2 officials on the entire site, basically - one told myself and someone else to move "behind the yellow safety tape" and we ignored them because we were out of the danger zone of the corner and protected by trees.

Uh, background stuff, all photos taken with a Pentax K10D and Sigma 70-200 f2.8 EX DG, aperture/shutter priority, a few are cropped, otherwise unedited, just resized.

Morning - just out of Birdwood, leading into a stage start -

<3 Molly!!! Her driving's great and the car sounds brilliant - you can hear it coming well before ANY other car on the field. She's only 2 years older than me... that's attainable isn't it??

Most of the Galants running look worse and worse every year, the numerous Datto 1600s are better looked after it seems -

... too late.

Swift was getting an absolute caning - one of the more entertaining cars! Most of the cars got this corner completely wrong, went in far too quickly and went straight ahead -

IMGP45361023.jpg


This Golf was the worst, went straight ahead then held it flat through the following 2 corners strung together so it was just bouncing off the limiter for a good 5 seconds or so -

This one held the slide -

And the most awesome car of the rally...

^ was faster than a few of the rather timidly driven WRXs.

Thanks for looking goodnight!

Great set of pics, well done.

You get to see Simon/Sue Evans and the Bates/Taylor TRD Corolla? I was at the QUIT Forest Rally here in WA earlier this year and those cars were nuts. Looks like you had a fair bit of fun.

How do you rate the Sigma 70-200? I've heard good things about it.

Better than being in Adelaide itself for the most part!

Saw the Corollas in the morning but missed them twice later in the day. I don't like the S2000 cars much, they don't sound great (loud, yes) but there's better sounding 4pots out there - they could probably do with a quieter exhaust TBH.

The 70-200 is a pretty good lens, I only paid $830 for mine second hand, but as new. A little CA wide open, but very sharp. Focusing speed pretty good thanks to the focusing ring decoupling setup. Moot point though, I've got the older non-macro 70-200 which is sharper but only focuses to 1.8m, not 1m. Production of the Pentax model stopped back in 2006 sometime I think. Best bet now would be one of these - http://www.tamron.com/lenses/prod/70200_di.asp
Supposedly due August, for just US$699.
