WRC Great Britain 2010 - Epynt

After the cold and wet friday we had at Sweet Lamb it was very welcome when we got to Epynt to have the sun shining (we even caught the sun slightly). If you follow my blog you will have seen the event at Epynt earlier this year in March. It is very fast and for the WRC two stages were being used. The first stage was a mega quick tarmac course and the second stage was on gravel. Here are the pics.

Epynt is a military testing ground and there is basically nothing for miles and miles around. I kept finding empty bullet shells on the ground too.
It got busy, very quickly.
I spotted this parked up. It would have been the perfect car for the drive into the stage.
My brother took a photo of me wearing about 5 layers in order to try and keep warm. Luckily my jeans and trainers had dried out after Sweet Lamb.
Onto the cars then. The first car is the Volvo stage car.
Now the start of the rally cars.
The VIP's landed near us in a chopper.
Here is a quick vid of the corner I was watching at.

Next corner. Myself and my brother tried to find the best place to take photos.

Next corner. We watched here for the next set of cars which comprised of Escorts and various FWD competitors.
And to finish it off we had more choppers fly over and around us.
