  1. Hi, Keith . I think the current WRC cars look a bit extreme with the aero bits , but they are so quick and you can see the aero working when you look at ride heights off stage and then at full speed on stage . The are certainly being pedalled hard ! The base this year was Llandudno, teams service area spread around car parks on the front . This was ok , but not as good as other countries where the service park is one big collective venue . These days I enjoy watching at service parks and regroups which is where my photos come from . Chasing around forests and being told where to stand doesn’t appeal to me now . Got lots of great memories of doing that in the 90’s though , speeding around the country in cars then vans , sleeping on the move . Great times ! I remember coming down the A1 to Yorkshire , 2 am , and Gwyndaf Evans coming past in the pink Sierra Cosworth doing about 100 mph chased by his service van ! Gary .
  2. Proper rally cars ! The teams spend a fortune on aero bits , that then get trashed in the forests !
  3. Some more Rally cars from Rally GB .... Thanks for looking, Gary .
  4. Last weekend I was in North and Mid Wales spectating on Britain’s round of the World Rally Championship . I thought I would share a few photos. Some are clean cars , some very dirty , straight off a stage . Model car “weathered look “builders take note ! Thanks for looking , Gary . And now some stage fresh cars !
  5. Sadly the WRC doesn’t get the publicity of F1 . But the amount of people out in Wales this weekend shows it is a very popular sport . And you can get up close to the action . Gary .
  6. Out in Mid Wales spectating on Rally GB at the weekend and spotted this modern classic . Audi Coupe , a Quattro as well . Gary .

  8. Excellent build . Mk 1 Escorts seem to look better with age . A nice change to rally spec Mk 1 's . Gary .
  9. I agree with Astra GTE 's not liking bumps and bends . They were quick in a straight line though ! Gary .
  10. The “ issues “ with this kit pale into insignificance when you see a Rothmans liveried Mk 2 , built and finished really well like yours here . Most people would never spot the mistakes . Most are just happy to see an iconic car in model form . Gary .
  11. On our way to York today there were two Vauxhall Nova SR’s , both unmodified , one in yellow , the other a metallic blue , in convoy . I had a red SR back in the day and these two brought back all sorts of memories. Then a bit further up the A19 a red Mk 2 Vauxhall Astra GTE , the one with the digital dashboard ! Maybe there was a Vauxhall classic meet on nearby . By then I was in 80 ‘ s hot hatch heaven !! Love cars from this , my era . Gary .
  12. Painting window rubbers always put the fear of god into me !!!! . Your end result looks great though . Gary .
  13. Just bought this to add to my collection of Safari Rally Toyota Rally Cars .
  14. I feel sorry for drivers of a larger build . These must have been uncomfortable to drive , as not a lot of seat adjustment I would imagine . Look like the basis for a racing truck . Great model , nicely done . Gary.
  15. Looks really good , Pat . Best shape 911 , I reckon , with a cool and simple colour scheme . Gary .
