    Some friends of mine run a moped "racing" team and take part at the BMF rallies and also at a charity 6 hour long enduro race at RAF Wittering.

    I tagged along and took a few photos....

    Would also be interested to hear if people think the images are too dark. Looks fine at home but too dark on my work PC.

    EDIT: Photos replaced after re-processing them. Thanks Cloudy for the feedback.

    Not dark, but a little washed out, on the colour front

    Thanks cloudy, I think you may have hit the nail on the head there. I didn't have a lot of time to sort these pics so I used the automate function in Photoshop and just batched them all up then just uploaded them.

    I think I need to revisit Photoshop and do them properly.

    Interesting to see a different kind of racing. I know it can't always be helped but I find the backgrounds a little distracting...however the foregrund subject you have largely managed to hit spot on :)

    It must be the cheapest motorsport known to man and is a fantastic laugh. No one really takes it that seriously and it's a good excuse to have a BBQ and a couple of beers with everyone afterwards.

    The really scarey bit is that you can (and we have!) got race heads and carbon cans for the mopeds!! :D

    @dod, I don't mind the pic at all.

    @cloudy, I like what I see, what did you change exactly? I'm a photoshop newb!
