Rally cars are typically designed with a focus on durability and all-weather performance, as they often have to contend with a wide range of conditions during competition. They are usually based on production cars, but often have modifications that make them more suitable for rallying. Many are actually road legal because rally events often take place on public roads.
Rally cars are typically equipped with a handbrake, which is used to initiate a four-wheel drift around corners. This is one of the most iconic aspects of rally driving, and it takes a great deal of skill to master. Rally drivers also need to be very adept at reading the terrain and making quick decisions on the best line to take through a stage.
Co-drivers play a vital role in rally competitions, as they are responsible for reading stage notes and communicating them to the driver. This allows the driver to focus on the task at hand and maintain a good pace through the stage. Co-drivers also keep track of the car's position during the rally, which is crucial information for both the driver and team strategists.
Most modern rally cars are four-wheel drive, which gives them better traction on loose surfaces such as gravel or dirt. This is useful in rally competitions, where the stages (the individual sections of the race) are often run on such surfaces. Historically, rally cars were mostly two-wheel drive. However, four-wheel drive rally cars began appearing in the 1980s, and by the early 1990s, they became the norm in rallying.
If you're interested in getting started in rally racing, there are a few things you'll need to do. First, you'll need to find a car that meets the requirements for the class you want to compete in. Once you have a car, you'll need to make sure it's prepared for racing. This includes adding safety equipment, such as a roll cage, and making any necessary mechanical modifications. You'll also need to get a racing license from your local motorsport authority.
