Rally Racing is also known as “Rallying”. Rally Racing is a type of auto racing that mainly happens either on public or private roads with the use of specialty built road-legal cars. The tracks used are usually unpaved, closed off to usual traffic, and not around a circuit like many automobile races.
The races are against the clock, with the cars leaving at different times. The drivers rely on the skills of their co-drivers who help direct the driver, who cannot practice the course before the race.
Some competitors believe that the key to win is through pure speed, while others believe that it is through determination and strategy. The races are always unpredictable and breathtaking. A rally racer must know how to control and manage the car to reach the finish line and to prevent road accidents.
