Against the clock

NZ Life & Leisure - - Way Of Life -

A car rally is a com­pe­ti­tion of speed against the clock. It is made up of sev­eral high- speed “spe­cial stages” over pub­lic or pri­vate, sealed or un­sealed roads, which are closed to the pub­lic. Driv­ers and co- driv­ers at­tempt to drive the dis­tance in the short­est pos­si­ble time, and they get time penal­ties for be­ing late or tak­ing too long to com­plete main­te­nance dur­ing the race. Rally cars are vastly dif­fer­ent to their high­way­cruis­ing cousins, with pow­er­ful mo­tors de­signed to give fast pick- up through tight turns. mo­tor­sport. org. nz and ral­lynz. org. nz
