    This weekend was the last race of the season, so it was going ahead whatever the weather, and the rain came down all day making for some exciting racing.

    These are fantastic shots. Well caught, Barry. #3 looks like he's trying to levitate over the mud. :D

    After reading about that no one comes into this section I have made it here now.
    We had pay tv here about 5 years ago and this was on one of the shows and it went from the humble Ride on Mower as we call them here is Australia, to full hard core racers.
    I have never done this or seen it apart from the tele. But I am sure its one sports I could follow.
    Each shot is an amazing shot with the shot of look Mum Air Time being my favourite shot.
    If pushed I would say I would have been happy to been the one to take all of these shots.
    And I enjoyed looking at them all.

    Bloody hell Barry that looked like it was a lot of very wet and muddy fun, you have captured the event really well, mind i bet you were having to doge flying mud at times . i think they as mad as a bucket of frogs my self but hats off to them carrying on in those conditions. The last image sums it up beautifully . Bath time.:clapping:

    Great shots Barry! Looks like a really fun day out (apart from those who have to do the washing). #6 for me, out of all of them
