A second in my new series of rally photographs taken last Saturday morning the above photograph shows my favourite small car. The Ford Fiesta ST is in my opinion a lovely car, and I believe that Malcolm Wilson (the man behind this rally and Colin McRae) agrees with this because he has set up a specific trophy just for the Fiestas. I must have photographed at least a dozen of these tiny but powerful cars.
This was probably my best picture of this type of car, not just because of the sharpness and colourful car graphics, but also for the water spray behind (caused by the puddle he just drove through) and the way the wheels are turning towards the camera as he starts to power slide around the corner. This particular ST was driven by Meilyr Evans with Andrew Edwards as the co-driver.
