Ahead of the first round of the MSA British Rally Championship in Wales next weekend, our GT and Endurance photographer Nick Smith headed out into the forests around Sutton Bank for the Riponian Forest Stages Rally. Restricted to public areas, he was challenged to bring back a gallery of impressive photos from behind the fence. Here are 23 of his best photos from the day.
Nick’s next challenge will be the Mid Wales Stages Rally which opens the British Rally Championship.
