    Better condition this year with good thick ice on the roads and atleast alittle bit of snow so the souroundings was white. New look on the cars that i really like, and they have more power and sounds more agressive also :)

    4 times world champion Seb Ogier, with E-M1 + 8mm F1.8

    I usually dont like images where the car is on it´s way out of the picture, but i think this one turned out ok anyway.

    Nice shots. Thanks for sharing. There hasn't been TV coverage of WRC in the US for years, so I never see it anymore.

    Great shots as usual @GRID@GRID! I don't know if you've answered this elsewhere but how are you liking the EM1-II compared to your previous body?

    It´s better, but it still have to test it out more, because i didnt want to test different settings the one time of the year i get to see the WRC in Sweden :)

    There's a cable channel called One World Sports (OWS) that carries WRC races. Watching Rally of Portugal right now. Can't believe they're making them run in the city in a mickey mouse course that looks like a go-cart course. :)
