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 event, I captured an incredible 5215 photographs on a Nikon D3100 (body) with two lenses - 18-55mm and 55-200mm.
Day Two promised to be exciting after Sebastien Loeb took the overnight top qualifiers spot, and the 2018 Champion Johan Kristoffersson would have to launch a fight back to claim the overall top qualifiers spot.
The Swede fought back and claimed wins in the two qualifying heats, and on count back claimed the overall top qualifiers spot.
Oliver Eriksson was crowned the 2018 RX2 Series World Champion.
Kristoffersson claimed his 11th win from 12 rounds in Cape Town, with Mattias Ekstrom in second, Sebastien Loeb third, Kevin Hansen in fourth, DNF's for Timmy Hansen and Petter Solberg.
