Red kite Rally Stages 2017

A trip to Epynt near Brecon/Llandovery was on the cards this weekend for the Red Kite Stages 2017.  The weather was not great but for this time of year.  But i guess it was ok for most who are used to the rough conditions of Brecon Beacons National Park.  Throughout most of the morning there was fog and drizzle but it did not put off spectators turning up to see this.  It took a little while get the formalities under way.  I think trying to get the marshals organised, but once the cars were running it was in full swing.

I was only in attendance for the first stage as the weather was getting too rough for the camera but i captured pretty much everyone.  Would be nice to catch the cars from a different angle sometime.  Unfortunately rules are rules, so behind the spectator lines i stay until i get permission otherwise.  Results for the Red Kite Stages 2017 can be found here.  In general the day was good and organised well.

As usual, i have images of almost every car that competed in the Red Kite Rally Stages 2017 but i cannot post them all here.  If you would like to see any images of a car that competed then please contact me.  I normally post them to my Facebook Page.
