2013 NI Rally Series Round 1
It's hard even for me to imagine now, but there was a time when I was at some sort of motorsport event every weekend, cars, bikes, rallying, sprints, hillclimbs, Supermoto, Rallycross, car trials, anything at all that went vroom vroom and ate up a Saturday afternoon and I'd go and watch it (I must add thanks to my uncle Richard who took me to all these events when I was younger).

In more recent years, so much of my time has been eaten up by stockcar racing that I quite often am either too busy with Stock Car racing stuff or I'm at football matches or I'm trying the squeeze in "Normal" people things into my free Saturday afternoons.

As a think ahead of the coming oval racing season, and the "self destruct" approach of splitting classes, possibly so thin that most of the racing in 2013 won't be worth watching, I've decided to make more of an effort to go an see more "Other Motorsport", and so I ended up at Kirkistown for the opening round of the NI Rally Series.

I'm not sure about the results, but I think Derek McGarrity was around 17 seconds ahead going into the last stage, so I'd be fairly sure he won. I do know I'd an enjoyable afternoon watching and photoing very fast cars at my liesure, with my only real concern being that my battery was running out. No stresses, no having to be there hours early, no having to take notes to write reports, no having to run around like a blue arsed fly, just point, shoot and review.
