the worlds first motoring contest
3. On July 23, 1894, the Parisian magazine Le Petit Journal organized what is considered to be the world s first motoring competition fromParis to Rouen. Sporting events were a tried and tested form of publicity stunt and circulation booster. Pierre Giffard, the paper s editor, promoted it as a Competition for Horseless Carriages that were not dangerous, easy to drive, and cheap during the journey. Thus it blurred the distinctions between a reliability trial, a general event, and a race. One hundred and two competitors paid 10 francs entrance fee .....
Early races
4. The Paris Bordeaux Paris race of June 1895 has sometimes been described as the first motor race , despite the 1894 event being decided by speed and finishing order of the eligible racers. The first to arrive was .....
City to city racing
5. Auto construction and racing dominated by France, the French automobile club ACF staged a number of major international races, usually from or to Paris, connecting with another major city, in France or elsewhere in Europe.

The very successful early European rally races ended in 1903 when Marcel Renault was involved in a fatal accident near Angoul .....

Open wheel car
7. The best known variety of single seater racing, Formula One, involves an annual World Championship for drivers and constructors.

In single seater (open wheel) the wheels are not covered, and the cars often have aerofoil wings front and rear to producedownforce and enhance adhesion to the track. In Europe and Asia, open wheeled racing is commonly referred to as Formula , with appropriate hierarchical suffixes. In North America, the Formula terminology is not followed (with the exception of F1). The sport is usually arranged to follow an international format (such as F1), a regional format, or a domestic , or country specific format (such as the German Formula 3 championship, or the British Formula Ford).
In North America, the cars used in the National Championship (currently the IndyCar Series, and previously CART) have traditionally been similar though less sophisticated than F1 cars, with more restrictions on technology aimed at controlling costs. .....
Formula Three car racing
8. The other major international single seater racing series is GP2 (formerly known as Formula 3000 and Formula Two). Regional series include Formula Nippon and Formula V6 Asia (specifically in Asia), Formula Renault 3.5 (also known as the World Series by Renault, succession series of World Series by Nissan), Formula Three, Formula Palmer Audi andFormula Atlantic. In 2009, the FIA Formula Two Championship brought about the revival of the F2 series. Domestic, or country specific series include Formula Three, Formula Renault, Formula Ford with the leading introductory series beingFormula BMW.

Single seater racing is not limited merely to professional teams and drivers. There is a large amateur club racing scene catering for those who want to race single seaters against similar people all over the world. In the UK the major club series are the Monoposto Racing Club, BRSCC F3 (Formerly ClubF3, formerly ARP F3), Formula Vee and Club Formula Ford. Each series caters for a section of the market , with some primarily providing low cost racing whilst others aim for an authentic experience using the same regulations as the professional series (BRSCC F3).

There are other categories of single seater racing, including kart racing, which employs a small, low cost machine on small tracks. Many of the current top drivers began their careers in karts. Formula Ford once represented a popular first open wheel category for up and coming drivers stepping up from karts and now theFormula BMW series is the preferred option as it has introduced an aero package and slicks, allowing the junior drivers to gain experience in a race car with dynamics closer F1. .....
Formula 2 car racing
9. After 25 years away from the sport, former Formula 2 champion, Jonathan Palmer, reopened the F2 category again, most drivers have graduated from the Formula Palmer Audi series. The category is officially registered as the FIAFormula Two championship. Most rounds have two races and are support races to the FIA World Touring Car Championship. .....
Touring car racing
10. Touring car racing is a style of road racing that is run with production derived race cars. It often features full contact racing due to the small speed differentials and large grids.
The major touring car championships conducted worldwide are the V8 Supercars (Australia), British Touring Car Championship, Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, and the World Touring Car Championship. The European Touring Car Cup is a one day event open to Super 2000 specification touring cars from Europe s many national championships.

The Sports Car Club of America s SPEED World Challenge Touring Car and GT championships are dominant in North America. America s historic Trans Am Series is undergoing a period of transition, but is still the longest running road racing series in the U.S. The National Auto Sport Association also provides a venue for amateurs to compete in home built factory derived vehicles on various local circuits. .....
Sports car racing
11. In sports car racing, production derived versions of sports cars also known as grand tourers , and purpose built sports prototype cars compete within their respective classes on closed circuits.The premier championship series of sports car racing is the FIA World Endurance Championship. The main series for GT car racing is the FIA GT1 World Championship. There is also the FIA GT3 European Championship as well as the less powerful GT4 European Cup. Previously, an intermediate FIA GT2 European Championship existed, but the FIA dropped it to cut costs. Other major GT championships include the Japanese Super GT championship and the International GT Open for GT2 and GT3 cars. There are also national GT championships using mainly GT3 and GT4 cars featuring professional and amateur drivers alike. .....
The Audi R18 Mans Prototype car
12. Sports prototypes, unlike GT cars, do not rely on road legal cars as a base. They are closed wheel and often closed cockpit purpose built race cars intended mainly for endurance racing. They have much lower weight and more down force compared to GT cars making them much faster. They are raced in the 24 hours of Le Mans and in the Le Mans series, Asian Le Mans Series and the United SportsCar Championship. These cars are referred to as LMP cars with LMP1 being run mainly by manufacturers and the slightly less powerful LMP2 cars run by privateer teams. All three Le Mans Series run GT cars in addition to Le Mans Prototypes; these cars have different restrictions than the FIA GT cars. .....
Production car racing
13. Production car racing, otherwise known as showroom stock in the US, is an economical and rules restricted version of touring car racing, mainly used to restrict costs. Numerous production racing categories are based on particular makes of cars.

Most series follow the Group N regulation with a few exceptions. There are several different series that are run all over the world, most notably, Japan s Super Taikyu and IMSA s Firehawk Series which ran between the 1980s to 1990s all over the United States. .....
One make racing
14. One make, or single marque, championships often employ production based cars from a single manufacturer or even a single model from a manufacturer s range. There are numerous notable one make formulae from various countries and regions, some of which such as the Porsche Supercup and, previously, IROC have fostered many distinct national championships. Single marque series are often found at club level, to which the production based cars, limited modifications, and close parity in performance are very well suited. Some of the better known single make series are the Mini 7 Championship , the Radical European Masters, John Cooper Mini Challenge, Clio Cup, Ginettas, Caterhams, BMWs, and MX5s. There are also single chassis single seater formulae, such as Formula Renault and Formula BMW, usually as feeder series for senior race formula . .....
Stock car racing
15. In North America, stock car racing is the most popular form of auto racing.Primarily raced on oval tracks, stock cars vaguely resemble production cars, but are in fact purpose built racing machines which are built to tight specifications also called Silhouette racing cars.

The 2012 FedEx 400 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Dover International SpeedwayThe largest stock car racing governing body is NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing). NASCAR s premier series is the Sprint Cup Series, its most famous races being the Daytona 500, the Southern 500, the Coca Cola 600, and the Brickyard 400. NASCAR also runs several feeder series, including the Nationwide Series, and Camping World Truck Series (a pickup truck racing series). The series conduct races across the entire continental United States. The NASCAR Canadian Tire Series conducts races across Canada and the NASCAR Toyota Series conducts races across Mexico.

NASCAR also governs several smaller regional series, such as the Whelen Modified Tour. Modified cars are best described as open wheel cars. Modified cars have no parts related to the stock vehicle for which they are named after. A number of Modified cars display a manufacturers logo and vehicle name , yet use components produced by another automobile manufacturer.

An ASA Late Model Series stock car on an asphalt track.There are also other stock car governing bodies, most notably the Automobile Racing Club of America (ARCA)

In the UK, British Stock car racing is also referred to as Short Circuit Racing . This takes place on shale or tarmac tracks .....
Rallying
16. Rallying at international and most national championship levels involves two classes of homologated road legal production based car; Group N Production cars and more modified Group A cars. Cars compete on closed public roads or off road areas run on a point to point format where participants and their co drivers rally to a set of points, leaving in regular intervals from start points. A rally is typically conducted over a number of special stages on any terrain, which entrants are often allowed to scout beforehand at reduced speeds compiling detailed shorthand descriptions of the track or road as they go. These detailed descriptions are known as pace notes. During the actual rally, the co driver reads the pace notes aloud (using an in helmet intercom system) to the driver, enabling them to complete each stage as quickly as possible. Competition is based on lowest total elapsed time over the course of an event s special stages, including penalties.

The top series is the World Rally Championship (WRC), first contested in 1973, but there also regional championships and many countries have their own national championships. Some famous rallies include the Monte Carlo Rally, Rally Argentina, Rally Finland and Rally GB. Another famous event (actually best described as a rally raid ) is the Paris Dakar Rally, conceived in 1978. There are also many smaller, club level, categories of rallies which are popular with amateurs, making up the grass roots of motor sports. Cars at this level may not comply fully with the requirements of group A or group N homologation. As well as the WRC other major rally events include the British Rally Championship, Intercontinental Rally Challenge, African Rally Championship, Asia Pacific Rally Championship and endurance rally events like the Dakar Rally. .....
Drag racing
17. In drag racing, the objective is to complete a given straight line distance, from a standing start, ahead of a vehicle in a parallel lane. This distance is traditionally ? mile (400 m), though ? mile (200 m) has become popular since the 1990s. The vehicles may or may not be given the signal to start at the same time, depending on the class of racing. Vehicles range from the everyday car to the purpose built dragster. Speeds and elapsed time differ from class to class. Average street cars cover the ? mile in 12 to 16 seconds, whereas a top fuel dragster takes 4.5 seconds or less, reaching speeds of up to 530 km/h . Drag racing was organized as a sport by Wally Parks in the early 1950s through the NHRA (National Hot Rod Association). The NHRA was formed to discourage street racing.

When launching, a top fuel dragster will accelerate at 3.4 g (33 m/s?), and when braking parachutes are deployed the deceleration is 4 g , more than the Space Shuttle experiences. A top fuel car can be heard over 8 miles (13 km) away and can generate a reading from 1.5 to 3.9 on the Richter scale.

Drag racing is two cars head to head, the winner proceeding to the next round. Professional classes are all first to the finish line wins. Sportsman racing is handicapped (slower car getting a head start) using an index (a lowest e.t. allowed), and cars running under (quicker than) their index break out and lose. The slowest cars, bracket racers, are also handicapped, but rather than an index, they use a dial in. .....
Off road racing
18. In off road racing, various classes of specially modified vehicles, including cars, compete in races through off road environments. In North America these races often take place in the desert, such as the famous Baja 1000. In Europe, offroad refers to events such as autocross or rallycross, while desert races and rally raids such as the Paris Dakar, Master Rallye or European bajas are called cross country rallies. .....
Kart racing
19. The modern kart was invented by Art Ingels, a fabricator at the legendary Indianapolis car manufacturer Kurtis Kraft, in Southern California in 1956. Ingels took a small chainsaw engine and mounted it to a simple tube frame chassis weighing less than 100 lb. Ingels, and everyone else who drove the kart, were startled at its performance capabilities. The sport soon blossomed in Southern California, and quickly spread around the world. Although often seen as the entry point for serious racers into the sport, kart racing, or karting, can be an economical way for amateurs to try racing and is also a fully fledged international sport in its own right. A large proportion of professional racing drivers began in karts, often from a very young age, such as Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso. Several former motorcycle champions have also taken up the sport, notably Wayne Rainey, who was paralysed in a racing accident and now races a hand controlled kart. As one of the cheapest ways to race, karting is seeing its popularity grow worldwide. .....
Historical racing
20. As modern motor racing is centered on modern technology with a lots of corporate sponsors and politics involved, historical racing tends to be the opposite. Because it is based on a particular era it is more hobbyist oriented, reducing corporate sponsorship and politics. Events are regulated to only allow cars of a certain era to participate. The only modern equipment used is related to safety and timing. A historical event can be of a number of different motorsport disciplines. Notably some of the most famous events of them all are theGoodwood Festival of Speed and Goodwood Revival in Britain and Monterey Historic in the United States. Championships range from grass root Austin Seven racing to the FIA Thoroughbred Grand Prix Championship for classic Formula One chassis. .....
Use of flags
21. In many types of auto races, particularly those held on closed courses, flags are displayed to indicate the general status of the track and to communicate instructions to competitors. While individual series have different rules, and the flags have changed from the first years (e.g., red used to start a race), these are generally accepted. .....
Accidents in car racing
22. Due to the inherently dangerous nature of auto racing, many individuals, including drivers, crew members, officials and spectators, have been killed in crashes related to the sport, in races, in qualifying, in practice or in private testing sessions. Deaths among racers and spectators were numerous in the early years of racing. However advances in safety technology, and specifications designed by sanctioning bodies to limit speeds, have reduced deaths in recent years. Spectacular accidents have often spurred increased safety measures and even rules changes. The worst motorsports accident was Pierre Levegh s 1955 crash at Le Mansthat killed him and around 80 spectators with over 100 being injured. .....
Racing car setup
23. In auto racing, the racing setup or car setup is the set of adjustments made to the vehicle to optimize its behaviour (performance, handling, reliability, etc.). Adjustments can occur in suspensions, brakes, transmissions, engines, tires, and many others. .....
Racing driver
24. Racing drivers at the highest levels are usually paid by the team, or by sponsors, and can command very substantial salaries.
Contrary to what may be popularly assumed, racing drivers as a group do not have unusually good reflexes. During countless physiological evaluations of professional racing drivers, the two characteristics that stand out are racers near obsessive need to control their surroundings, and an unusual ability to process fast moving information (physiological). In this, researchers have noted a strong correlation between racers psychological profiles and those of fighter pilots. In tests comparing racers to members of the general public, the greater the complexity of the information processing matrix, the greater the speed gap between racers and the public. Due partly to the performance capabilities of modern racing cars, racing drivers require a high level of fitness, focus and the ability to concentrate at high levels for long periods in an inherently difficult environment. .....
