For many people, motor sports racing consists solely of track or off-road competition in which highly trained drivers take the wheel behind high-priced machines, and take high risks for even higher stakes. In most scenarios, speed is king, and the winner is the first person across the line…period. However, this isn’t always the case, and there is a very important part of motor racing that focuses exclusively on precision, and in which math, and the help of a good co-pilot could mean the difference between victory and defeat.

The European Rally – Time, Speed, and Distance, Demo Day took a closer look at the phenomena of the European Rally and examined the factors that made it one of the most challenging and cerebral competitions in racing today.

The featured Cars included the 1938 Jaguar 3.5 Litre SS 100, the 1948 Talbot-Lago T26 Grand Sport Coupe, and the 1954 Austin-Healey 100-4 BN1.
