Mud on the tyres
Once the first whistle sounds, Stuart Wing has precious few chances to capture the speed and power of the World Rally Championship
Stuart Wing

I have always loved motorsport, and to me rallying is the most exciting spectacle to watch and photograph. I started with a Nikon D40 and a kit lens, which I purchased in 2008. I then began to capture more and more car pictures after visiting the historic Shelsley Walsh course in July 2015. The following year I returned to photograph the Classic Nostalgia event, just before upgrading to a Nikon D5500. I attended various club events thereafter and soon upgraded further to a Nikon D500, before heading to the World Rally Championship’s (WRC) Wales Rally GB event in 2018 and 2019. The WRC is the pinnacle of rallying and the D500 is the perfect companion. I match the body with my Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses. It’s a winning combination for high-speed motorsport photography.
