Kewl, very good

I've never been to a rally, but I'm not near anywhere where they hold them.

You must have a pretty good shutter speed on that cam of yours.

I've always wanted to be a rally driver. I'd love to be able to try it sometime.

I don't think there's anywhere near me where you can try it though.

I am buying my dad a days rallying for his 50th birthday this year, well its either that or the golfing weekend.

I would like to give it a bash myself, so I might go with him, the rallying that is, not the golfing.

But seriously those pics are nice and clear, what camera do you use?

Damn, those look really awesome!

Just wondering, what kind of camera do you have..? Because when there running at like 50mph, you need to have a nice camera, to get the pics to look that good, when there moving.

Yeah, I got hit in the face with some gravel stones a few times, I was actually worried that a stone would hit the camera and crack the lense so I had to take a shot and look away really fast!

The camera is a fuji, s5000 I think
