    Rallying is a form of auto racing that takes place on public or private roads with modified production or specially built road-legal cars. This motorsport is distinguished by running not on a circuit, but instead in a point-to-point format in which participants and their co-drivers drive between set control points (special stages), leaving at regular intervals from one or more start points. Rallies may be won by pure speed within the stages or alternatively by driving to a predetermined ideal journey time within the stages.
    拉力賽英式英語Rallying美式英語Rally Racing),是在公共或者私人道路上,使用改裝過的或者是特製的汽車進行的比賽。和其他賽車不同之處在於,拉力賽不是在賽道上進行,而是在點到點之間的賽段上比賽。在這個賽段上,參賽者和他的副駕駛(導航員)在一些控制點之間的路段上駕駛,在一個或者幾個起點上,按照規定間隔出發。冠軍可以是單純的賽段內速度最快或是在賽段內達到預先設定的規定行駛時間


    「道路拉力賽」是這種比賽的原始形式,通常在道路複雜的普通的高速公路上舉行。這類長途比賽並不是一味地強調速度,而是準確的時間控制、導航和車輛的可靠性。現在這類比賽通常是業餘賽事,被叫做常規賽或者時間-速度-距離賽(Time-Speed-Distance Rally, TSD Rally)。[1]
