I took the opportunity to do some scans of my old rally pictures. The first two are from the 1976 Circuit of Ireland Rally. The one of Billy Coleman was the first I had published in a UK national magazine (Motoring News) and the one of Bengt Lundstrom won me a prize in a local competition - an 8 track cassette player - remember those? - I sold it and bought something photographic instead!
All shot with Pentax Spotmatic on Tri-X rated at ISO 800.

And I couldn't resist this one - of a very young Ari Vatanen (later to become World Rally Champion and Finnish MEP) on the Donegal International Rally in 1975.
