Subaru Rally of Canberra, Day 1
We were lucky enough to spend the night in the hotel with a few of the drivers, so finding the first event was fairly easy - just follow the procession of cars that looked like they new where they were going !
Some amazing driving, lots of action.
The first stages were to the west of Canberra, unfortunately there had been big bushfires through only a few months previously, so what used to be a forest was now flat and featureless dustbowl - but it made for long range viewing of the cars.
THe most spectacular stage of the day was the 'MineShaft' a 45 degree downhill run with a nasty crest at the top. Lots of air, and a few near misses.
We finished the day with a tour of the Tidbinbillia Radio Observatory.
