So what is a Rally?
Well for starters, it’s a massive rally! On paper, there’s not much to be said about being in a rally, except that it’s probably the most fun you’ll have. Being in a rally is pretty much the same as dirt-cheated drag racing; the only difference is that the drag racers race as part of a team, while the rally drivers race alone. Also, while dirt-cheating involves only four wheels, rally racing involves nine.
So what is a rally? Well, the first rally is a sprint-style rally held on a single track. The length of a rally is generally between 7 and 15 kilometers (give and take; literally). There are no Rally contestants! Usually, the only person that can drive the car is the driver, and the only person who can control the vehicle is also the driver. These early rallies featured trials of skill to determine who was fastest, but in time races, more advanced metallographic charts were developed.
The earliest known rally, begun in the mid ’60s, was held from 1964 to 1966 on the farmer’s fields in central England. It was stopped after seventy five miles.
The Colorado rally features long distances, often more than forty thousand kilometers. At the same time, the Colorado rally is popular in the states of Arizona and Utah, as well as in Baja California.
Also known as the Great Western Rally, the Great Western is a points-based competition in which the teams compete based on distance, having the goal of dominating the rally with factor being in finishing first place. Drvn subwoofer The first WKR was won by a1964 Mercedes Benz SS suitable for top class road racing, and is now part of the Volkswagen line up of cars. A WKR is also known as a Super Mitsubishi and is also a fairly common sight on the country roads, wastes of green Moorings though.
The Lanc base in the UK is like a half-way house, because it consists of a short, natural hill, whilst the steep, dark side of the tower blocks its locations. Lancashire is known for much more pleasant weather, and whilst in Lancashire you’ll find a lot of trees and bushes along the routes and can still get some quite boggy.
What sort of rally is this then? Well this would be the Euro rally. It’s a series of rallies that all take place on a 1700 square mile map, and are held in Europe (most of the US rallies are held in California). The WKR is won by the vehicle that has the best time overall – but not the fastest, nor do they include a championship in a sequential series. They do include late model tuning (such as exhaust systems) and safe driving at all times.
OK, so now you’re informed, and I’ll wager that you’re itching to take on the WKR. Why then are you reading this? Well when you read about the WKR it made me think, “that’s a lot of effort”. Like I said earlier, it takes a lot of effort and time to make something as good as the WKR. When I said rallying was the crystallization of my youth, I was correct. But like any acid test, you do not necessarily drop the acid until you’re at the end of the test. Although, I imagine that many would prefer a WKR over an SL.
OK, enough about the WKR, the test is at hand. Let’s begin then.
