History

Just what is a Performance Road Rally?

A Performance Road Rally is real cars competing on real roads. Also called Professional or Stage rallying, it is one of the largest spectator motorsports in the world. Professional rallying is a race over closed sections of rural roads by modified production automobiles. Competitors race one car at a time against the clock, on roads called stages, which are closed to other traffic. In between the racing stages, the cars travel over public roads and are required to obey all traffic laws. For more on the basics on performance rallying, review the write-up "So what is Performance Rally".

Below you will find an overview of the Sno*Drift performance rally and how it has evolved over the decades to become a top-level rally competition.
