TOP 20 PHOTOGRAPHS: 2018 Gumtree World Rallycross of South Africa - DAY 1.

The 2018 Gumtree World Rallycross of South Africa has come and gone, but the memories will last forever, and so will photographs taken at the event. 

Over the course of the World RX weekend, I captured an incredible 5215 photographs on a little Nikon D3100 (body) with two lenses - 18-55mm and 55-200mm.

Day One was rather thrilling with Aerobatic display's, National Rally demos, RX2 and the World RX supercars taking to the track. 

Sebastien Loeb topped the day, while Johan Kristoffersson was languishing in 16th overall after Q1, but staged a masterful come back after suffering with turbo issues in the first qualifying heat. Kristoffersson claimed victory in the second qualifying heat climbing from sixteenth overall to sixth on day one.
