My fav slogan : DIRT IS FOR RALLYING AND TARMAC IS TO GET THERE
But for watching its Circuit racing .... you get a nice view watching all cars together without any dust being thrown up

Now tell me.. after having a Car like Subaru Impreza in rallys who woud like to Take round and round of the same lap again and again.. must be some bored guy for sure.. i personally think in a rally racing is better because there you can test a Drivers Skills at Extreme Levels and also the Cars capibility.. Both over there make importance with ofcourse on what kind of track they are moving on.. Including the Kind of Soil the car is moving on.. the Driver has to make his movings accordingly..
Cheers!!

Certainly rallying. Its where both man an machine are put to ultimate test. You see many machines breaking down in rallys but less in circuit racing, where its mostly speed that rules. Rally is over different terrains and conditions, hence its more challenging and risky. that gives more adrenaline surges.

Circuit racing: Why- well for one you race against others. There's one thrill of throwing the car around the circuit and all, But racing against someone, even if its in 2 slow cars together, gives you a rush a thrill, coz you now have to beat the circuit and the other guy.
When i go Karting, its no fun if beat the other guy easily. Then i simply concentrate on trying to improve my time, but when you are racing guys who are the same speed as you thats when the realk fun begins. You cant beat him on outrisght speed, so you have to work to get yourself into a damn good position to overtake or pressure the guy into a mistake, and it could take 3 laps to string that move together.
Love it

Well Put! Bumper to bumper racing appeals to me more than trying to beat the clock.

hello guys,
rallying and circuit racing are totally different thing , both needs different level of skills and patience.....so i am voting for rally racing because it is much more tougher than circuit racing

Cicuit racing ..because safety standards in our rallying are yet to improve and it will take atleast 15 mins for an ambulance to get to you in rallying ( if yr lucky) whereas in circuit racing should be there in a couple of minutes.
Secondly u have no villagers or animals to hit on circuits , which is a major hazard and can end you tied to a tree for no fault of yours.
