FIA WRC Championship Finland Photos - part 2 - Humans

More than a rally



Rally is so much more than cars and who drives the fastests, it's about spending time in Finnish nature and most of all; it's about the people. Rally is a spectator sport.

I'm always taking pictures of interesting rally fans and situations, usually so that the people don't even notice me before I'm already moved on. Sometimes people ask me to take their picture, or just start posing, but most of the times I just stalk and find pleasure in getting the unposed and unprovoked moment captured.

I have somewhere ONE photo of a man in a mask, but I’m 100% sure he only wore it because he was standing on the outside curve of the road and got dust and gravel thrown at him with every passing car 😂

I love the spectators in the tree stands. Last year at a rally, there were a few in tree stands that had also set up a clothes line with a basket. That allowed them to pass beer and food back and forth over a 20 foot span.

I've been to many, many rallies, but I have never thought to stop and find out if someone won or lost ... it's all about the socializing in nature ...

There's also just something about the smell of pine needles and car exhaust that's very hard to describe.

I have a rally Finland on my I have to go a long time, mainly thanks to the fans, because most of them are really passionate about the sport.
