Sunday saw the return of stage rallying to Cadwell Park with new improved layouts that took the 70 car strong entry list around the picturesque Lincolnshire circuit. The rally consisted of 10 special stages running a variety of different layouts, including heading down the infamous Mountain section.
For me this event was a subtle reminder of what got my into motorsport in the first place – rallying. Whilst the sport has seen it’s ups and downs over the years it has always been something that has fascinated me. There’s something about the action, amazing scenery and cars that we can (generally anyway) relate to that I’ve always liked. It was great to see some of the drivers on the weekend really pushing and providing a great show to spectators, marshals and the media. I hope the rally continues in the future and grows even stronger.
I particularly enjoyed seeing the small element of ‘off-road’ in the stages as it just added another element and allowed the spectator to see even more of what rallying is about. Hopefully they can add to this in future and utilise more of the access roads around the edge of the circuit.
Here’s a selection of my favourite photographs from the weekend. My next event at Cadwell Park will be the HSCC Wolds Trophy on the 20th and 21st of April. My next event is the Blancpain Endurance Series at Monza this coming weekend.
