Review: McKlein calendars

Celebrated photographers McKlein have unveiled their much-loved 2022 calendars in time to choose the perfect Christmas present for you or your loved ones.

The highlight is the McKlein Rally Calendar 2022 – The Wider View. The classic giant-sized calendar captures some of the most iconic images from the FIA World Rally Championship season, carefully selected by top photographers Reinhard Klein and Colin McMaster.

Superb images include Elfyn Evans in the snow at the WRC’s one-off visit to Finland’s Arctic Rally, high-flying local hero Ott Tänak in Estonia and Gus Greensmith setting up his Ford Fiesta in front of a stunning sunset at the same rally.

Other highlights feature Dani Sordo dusting his way through a charming Portuguese wildflower backdrop, along with wonderful impressions from the WRC’s first trip to Croatia and, of course, the return to Kenya’s remarkable Safari Rally.

It features 25 images in a 95cm x 48cm Cinemascope format. There is a choice of two images per month which bring to life stunning landscapes from events like Monte-Carlo and Greece through the lenses of McKlein’s expert photographic artists.

As always, the 2022 version, which is a licensed WRC product, presents a vivid portrayal of the colourful and adrenaline-packed world of the sport we all love.

If you don’t have a wall big enough for the metre-wide calendar, then how about the 2022 Desktop Rally Calendar – History meets the Present?

It’s a perfect fit for your office or home study. Measuring 11.5cm x 14cm, it is spiral-bound and the 56 images offer a choice every two weeks between a classic photograph chosen from more than 50 years of rally history and a shot from current WRC events.

The clever move to enjoy all 56 photos is to rotate between the two each week!

There’s something for everyone to convey the amazing atmosphere of the WRC in the final season of the World Rally Car era, featuring the Toyota Yaris, Hyundai i20 and Ford Fiesta.

Alternatively, you can recall wonderful memories from yesteryear via WRC greats like the Audi Quattro, Peugeot 205 Turbo 16 or Alpine-Renault A310.

The Wider View is priced at €45.00 while the Desktop Calendar retails at €9.95. More details are available from the McKlein Store here.
