Yesterday the Launceston and North Cornwall Motor Club held their annual trial run through Eastcott Woods,this competitor became stuck on one of the many steep hill sections,hence the burning rubber as the rear wheels spun furiously without grip.

He seems to be in a bit of trouble this guy! With the smoke from the burning rubber and head poked out of the window, it makes for a great action shot. Very well presented with excellent colour contrasts.

love this shot! Full of action and so nostalgic for me as my second car was an old escort like this one. Never managed to get it to do this though, but not through want of trying! Ah! the exuberance of youth eh! ;-). Wonderful!
Have a great week - Brian.

Une chance qu'il a deux pneus de rechange, car à la vitesse ou il les usent, ils ne devraient pas durer très longtemps.Cela donne tout de même une belle impression de mouvement.

A different and very eye-catching photo. I have rarely seen tyres produce so much smoke, but maybe it happens often during this kind of races. In any case I enjoy this a lot more than the driver probably did. But he seems to have a llot of rubber to spare so maybe he didn't worry that much.

The question is did he dig in or did he get out Les? Lucky the ground was wet or with that much friction he would have started a bush fire ;) FORD.... found on rubbish dump, fix or repair daily and with this kind of treatment I can see why. A great shot full of drama and action. Warm regards Rosemary

Very impressive cloud of smoke, an obviously that didn't help a bit. There's something wild on tryng to use old Escord as a off-road vehicle. Well framed action shot.

The smoke coming from the tyres us absolutly primordial to understand now hard it is to druve in the forest path!

simpatica e particolare questa scena che hai colto, se ho capito bene, all'interno di una gara in mezzo al bosco!
I colori sono belli luminosi, molto buona anche la nitidezza!

This an na amazing scene in the middle of the forest! The composition is perfect, with the effect of the smoke and the blue shiny car with the two tyres - it really stands out in the vegetation.
