INTERESTING FACTS

The term “rally” as a branch of motor sport dates from the first Monte Carlo Rally held in Jan 1911.

Rally cars are built to maintain peak performance in conditions where temperatures can plunge to near -30c at one round and soar to almost 30c above freezing on the next.

Stage rallies take place on off-road courses, whereas road rallies are held on highways, usually open to the public.

TIPS

Rally drivers make use of the handbrake turn to get around tight corners. Mastering this skill will improve your control on tight bends

Everyone has a slightly different preference when is comes to seating position, however the principle is the same for all of us. Have your upper back supported against the seat, not floating in mid air, and with both hands on the wheel your arms should be slightly bent, not locked out.

Choosing the right gear as you enter a corner is vital. Select a gear that is too low, and the car will fail to turn, and if you pick a gear that is too high, you will overshoot the corner entirely.
