Above myself prepairing for another stage at the Adgespeed Stages 2016 with Alan Pemberton. 33rd overall & 9th in class, Not too many issues, lost 2nd gear a few times, but put it's self right & a small cockpit fire at the beginning of stage 8, which was soon sorted. Not a bad day considering neither of us has been out for while.
Rallying, also known as rally racing, is a form of auto racing that takes place on public or private roads with modified production or specially built road-legal cars. This motorsport is distinguished by running not on a circuit, but instead in a point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points (special stages), leaving at regular intervals from one or more start points. Rallies may be won by pure speed within the stages or alternatively by driving to a predetermined ideal journey time within the stages.
We hope that this site will give you as much information on ralliyng as posible and how to get involved, including how to apply for a licence or train as a marshall.
We will not pretend that rallying is easy, it is not, alot of hard work and dediciction goes in to this sport from those that own & build rally cars and drive them, their co drivers, service crew and marshalls who stand around in freezing conditions. You have to be really dedicated to get in to this sport. So before you commit think hard! Remember Motor Sport can be Dangerous.
There are two main forms: stage rallies and road rallies. Since the 1960s, stage rallies have been the professional branch of the sport. They are based on straightforward speed over stretches of road closed to other traffic. These may vary from asphalt mountain passes to rough forest tracks, from ice and snow to desert sand, each chosen to provide an enjoyable challenge for the crew and a test of the car's performance and reliability.
The entertaining and unpredictable nature of the stages, and the fact that the vehicles are in some cases closely related to road cars, means that the bigger events draw massive spectator interest, especially in Europe, Asia and Oceania. Although WRC being the the biggest event, there are so many events all over the country each year, with different championships, all dependant on area.
