Rally is a branch of motorsport that runs on roads, for longer distances. This is unlike racing that is run on track where each race is fairly short, if you drive with standard cars. As everyone knows, F1 and other Formula are many laps around a fairly long course. Common to all branches of motorsport is that the driver must have a good rally overall. This also applies to the map reader who goes next to the driver during rally distances. Between the so-called special lanes there are transport lanes that are only for taking the rally car from one punk to another where the next special lane begins. There are common traffic regulations on the transport routes, which some drivers have experienced when they got stuck for speeding and other wrongdoing. We thus come to safety and where the overalls are an important detail, the importance of a safe overall is described in some of our other articles.
