MX-5 OC National Rally 2009 12-09-09: Part #1

To be honest, I didn’t know there had been a national rally in 2008.  So to find out it was all happening this year at the Mallory Park Circuit, just 1/2 an hour from my house was ace.  The surprise didn’t end there, as this morning ,when I opened my curtains, it was a red hot, sunny day!

The OC had thrown on an extra special bash this year to celebrate 20 years of the Roadster and 15 years of the club. If the sunshine wasn’t enough to get you out, the  20 min sessions running all day on the track should have!

Here’s a few of my pics:

Yep, left the hard top on.Yep, it was hot.

Nicest MK3 all day.

Mallory is a cool little circuit and great for shooting. You can get really close to the track.

Yay. Longchamps.

Apart from the weather, you couldn’t pass off these pics as So Cal or Japan… The Uk Roadster scene has a lot to learn about stance and fitment. I’m just going to put it down to all the best cars being at JAE but seriously, so much 4×4 happening.  It’s a sports car, make it look like one!

The only other low MX. Props to you Sir.

Mallory had an Moto Xtrack off to one side. It took me about 10 mins to even notice it, but when I did it was certainly worth a watch!

Stay tuned for part 2!
