is form of motorsport which literally allows spectators to touch
the cars as it passes. Unlike circuit racing where you have to
buy tickets and confined to the grandstand, rallying can be watch
by the road side or walk into the estates to find the best possible
spots. You maybe bitten by insects, soaked in mud and water and
coloured in dust but that is the thrill of rallying. Then there
is the service park an area where at time rallies are won and
lost. There times where cars come into the service parks battered
and damaged but after 20 minutes it¡¯s ready to be driven flat
out again. The combination of driver and co-driver, car and crew
with the least cumulative time wins a rally. Be sure not to miss
the action on the 21st to the 22nd of October.
