One of the most exciting motorsports out there is rally racing. These types of races take place on a point-to-point course instead of a circuit course. Basically, you see who can drive the fastest from one spot to the other. The thing is that these courses often wind through some seriously rough terrain and the drivers and passenger (there's often a passenger giving important directions) have to navigate the entire course at high speeds this often means kicking up lots of dirt, powering through mud or snow, and catching all kinds of air. To demonstrate just how amazing and beautiful the sport is, we thought it best to round up a bunch of photos and videos for your enjoyment.
