Easily my fave photo to date, I think it'll be a while before I'm in the right place to catch another moment like this!

 

Winner of the 2011 Rallycross World "Over the Fence" photography competition: www.rallycrossworld.com/2012/02/26/over-the-fence-winner/. I was extremely pleased about this, as there were some superb rallycross shots posted on the site throughout the year, so to have mine picked out was brilliant.

 

Receiving a signed copy of the picture from OMSE team boss Andreas Eriksson: www.rallycrossworld.com/2012/04/08/over-the-fence-2012/. Was pretty much lost for words as this was a complete surprise, huge thanks to those at Rallycross World, Best Buy Racing and OMSE who made it happen!
