Finnish Rallysprint

Motorsport girlsIn Finnish rallysprint the drivers are allowed to get to know the stage either by walking or riding a bike during the morning and the race is driven in the afternoon. No co-driver allowed! For all of the track lengths are between 2 - 6 km. There are also events in tarmac, gravel and snow/ ice tracks. The idea is simple. Cars are separated into classes, then you go as fast as you can around stage from a standing start. The second round is driven in a reversed order Fastest times taking the glory in each class from two allocated runs.

So, it's a real do-or-die, one shoot-for-victory. So you your time versus opponent's times. If you mess up your start, turn in too early, miss your braking point, drift off-line, miss a gear or lose it, your're finished. One mistake and it's all over!
