Shoot Rally Cars in Motion!
Join us for ‘Racing in the Woods’!
Who Should Attend: Beginners & Intermediate Photographers
This class is limited to 15 attendees
What You Will Learn:
• Panning Techniques
• Choosing Shutter Speeds for Success
• Metering Modes and Why they Matter
• Focus Modes and Techniques
Shoot speeding cars as they rally in the woods at this annual event. Approximately 50 cars will be racing (timed to start every minute). We will have fantastic opportunities to get great shots during this fast-paced racing event. Our instructors will keep you “On Track” with your camera and lens settings. We recommend fast memory cards and your wide to short telephoto lenses. The best focal length will be about 35mm to 70mm. Depending on the conditions, you may be sprayed with dirt and debris so dress accordingly.

We meet at 11am (arrive no later than 11:15 or you will miss us):
Huzzah Valley Resort 970 MO Hwy 8
Steelville, MO 65565
Directions available via GPS
Park in parking lot and look for the CCC banner on white Volkswagen
Super Special (SS) Stage 10 – Steelville
A SS is essentially a relatively small area or field (similar to Rallycross) in which the rallycars ‘exhibit’ for the spectators. These are not usually at full rally speeds but provides an opportunity to work on shooting techniques and to see the cars at a more reasonable speed.
Class arrive: 11:15 First car expected: 12:05 Depart SS 12:30
Service area (same location)
The service area is just that, the area in which rallycars are serviced, repaired, and fueled. Unlike many other motorsports, you can walk right up and speak to the teams and take up-close pictures of the rallycars.
Depart by 12:35-12:40 (we will caravan and leave together as a group for Potosi)
Transit to Stage 13 – Potosi (See map attached or below-we)
Follow directions from Potosi listed on appropriate Stage 13 map to the spectator point.
This spectator point is one of the famous turns in all of the 100AW. It’s a fast left turn that’s sure to shower those up front with gravel.
First car expected: 2:30pm
Arrive early to account for a bit of a walk from the parking location to the spectator area and to get a good position.
Be sure to follow the parking directions on the map.
