East Riding Stages Rally 2023

By Josh Harrison |

I've been wanting to photograph a rally race for quite a few years but never gotten the opportunity before. Fortunately this weekend was the East Riding Stages Rally put on by Beverley & District Motor Club and Vist East Yorkshire. Fortunately the sun was shining, so I looked at the routes for the various stages and found somewhere I could get to that would hopefully be quiet and let me get some good photos.

Motorsport Photography

It's been a while since I photographed any motorsports, I started out taking photos at a high shutter speed in order to capture the cars in focus which did work, but it didn't look like they were going very fast in the photos unless you notice all the debris kicked up behind them as they flew past. There were quite a few photographers at the spot I'd chosen and one of them pointed out that a slower shutter speed combined with a panning shot was the best way to capture the speed in a photo, so after a bit of practise I managed to get the hang of it.

After taking photos on one of the stages I went into Beverley to take some photos of the cars in the town centre. Below are a selection of my favourite photos but I do have a lot more if anyone wants to see they can contact me for more details.
