WRC Spain 2010

Postby Meurz » Wed Oct 27, 2010 12:16 am

For those who want to see some pics, I went to Spain last week for the RallyRACC. Great event with gravel and tarmac in one rally. Combined with the climate, impressive nature and good food it's one of the best rallies I've been to. :)

So very cool man! Envy Envy Envy!!

How close can you get to the rally cars, when they are parked and the racers are signing autographs?
can you walk up and touch them and peak your head into them like in America? or is it more strict?

Again man those are some GREAT shots you took! Must of been a blast!

Thanks guys :)

Dan, depends on the rally. In Spain I could 'touch' the cars when they parked up after the podium ceremony and some drivers did walk to the barriers to sign fan stuff. In Germany it's a lot harder, as was Italy. In the service park there are 2 rows of barriers around all service areas, the closest being for VIP, teammembers, press. Then another row for fans.

I've unintentionally touched a car or two as they flew past btw, shit the bed, not comfy at all! But managed to get some good pics out of it before lol :oops:
