The co-driver is more than just a passenger, mechanic, or a guy to help roll your car back on its wheels when you dump it in a creek. In-car video and audio will often feature the co-driver looking over a detailed set of notes and reading instructions to the driver regarding road conditions and what's ahead -- some of these drivers have been so well-versed with rallying that they can practically drive blind with only his / her co-driver's pacenotes guiding their way through. In most professional rally events, the notes are provided by the organising staff well in advance, or even by the driver having taken a dry run along the course[[note]]This is what is known as reconnaisance or colloquially a recce (pronounced as "wre-kee")[[/note]] ... but in older or lower-division rallies, the course itself may be kept secret until the end.

Rallying[[note]]This page refers to the motorsport of rallying, rather than other uses of the word rallying that may appear in the English language, a list of which can be found [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rally here]][[/note]] is a motorsport in which drivers and co-drivers compete against the clock to be the fastest from point A to point B. By 'against the clock' we mean that each car is sent out at spaced intervals; you're not going to see a NASCAR-style Big One.

The UsefulNotes/WorldRallyChampionship has done much to popularise the sport around the world, with its distinct driving style; the low-grip road surfaces encourage drifting to the point that some fans have joked about rally drivers never looking out the windshield of their cars. Fans at rally stage events can have another unique experience ... safety allowing, they can go out and aid a driver! This is usually not frowned upon, as the usual case where a fan would have any way of aiding the driver is the position of a car being 'off track' and likely 'on lid'.

At TheEighties, rallying uses cars that are similar to an 'all-out' format cars. They are known as Group B. Major manufacturers like Audi, Peugeot, Lancia, Ford, MG Metro, and many more battled down to have the most powerful rally cars available. Those cars are incredibly insane, and so fast that the drivers experienced tunnel vision while driving them. It is banned after a series of deaths in 1986, but those cars are still recognized today as the golden-era of rallying.

A typical modern rally will last around 3 days and feature somewhere between 12 and 30 stages, linked by untimed sections driven on open roads at regular, legal speeds, and service stops, often held overnight and / or in the middle of the day.

'Rallycross' events are different: these are lap races, head to head, without co-driver, on often purpose-built tracks. The cars are similar, though, and many techniques are too (although blocking is something a rally driver would have to learn).
