How Did It Start and Where Is It Going?

Rallying is a type of motorsport that mostly takes place in dirt roads may it be private or public with modified cars. Rallies don’t happen in circuits but is a race that takes place from point to point which means that it is a race from point A to point B. If we look back, rallying can be traced back to 1894 where the first rally started. The race was called the Paris—Rouen Horseless Carriage Competition which was sponsored at that time by a local newspaper in Paris called Le Petit Journal. Rallying has come a long way since those times and the sport is still continuing to gain attention and steadily has increased viewership throughout the years.
