MX-5 Owners Club National Rally 2015

This years MX-5 Owners Club National Rally was held at Kelmarsh Hall in Northamptonshire.  It was my second National Rally (photos from last years Rally are blogged here) and again this year the weather was perfect for driving around topless.

The National Rally was smaller than last years, but had the draw of the new Mazda MX-5 and some lucky owners brought their along just days after getting them.  It was good to see them amongst all the other MX-5s from the last 26 years.

There was also a small cone rally course for owners to test their skills.  For the first time I tried the video function on my Olympus E-M1 and got a couple of videos, which you can find the Just 10 Photos YouTube channel - red mk1 MX-5 and a silver mk1 MX-5.

This MX-5 sports the Zoom-Zoom logo, along with Nurburgring and Silverstone logos.
The cone course allowed me to practice my panning shots.
The rear wheel drive MX-5 kicks up some grass.
Tuning firm BBR showed off their new mk4 MX-5.
In the UK there's no longer a requirement to display a tax disc, this sticker adds a bit of fun.

Mind your ears!
Poking fun at VTEC owners!
