Keeping Your Car Clean

I still remember the day that I bought my first car. I thought it was the most perfect vehicle in the world, and I vowed to care for it diligently. Unfortunately, within a few days I had forgotten about my promise, and I started tossing fast food wrappers in the back like everyone else. After awhile I realized that neglecting my car was turning the inside into a garbage pit, and I decided to learn how to take better care of my vehicle. I took a class on auto detailing, and it really helped me to turn things around. I want to teach you what I learned, so you should read this blog.

How To Get Started Driving Rally As An Amateur


Rally is a great way for any car or racing enthusiast to participate in the action and drama of street-legal racing. With a little experience, understanding, and the right wheels, you can go far in experiencing the exhilaration of racing. But if you have the need for speed and want to get into rally, there are a few things you should know in order to get started as an amateur driver.

Get Involved

Knowing the ropes of rally comes with experience. Because courses include dangerous terrain and obstacles that you're trying to avoid at high speeds, you need to have as much experience with the process of racing as possible. First get involved with clubs, either as a member or informally as a spectator, so you can become a part of the community. Before you become a driver, you should also consider volunteer positions that include set-up, timing oversight, and spectator support. With volunteer experience, you can gain familiarity with the rules of racing, the needs of navigation, and the nuances of driving rally.

Consider Your Wheels

Rally racing demands the right vehicle, and driving even a modified street vehicle isn't advised. Rally cars should be constructed to hold up to stringent operational and safety standards, so before you modify your vehicle or make a purchase, consider talking to a custom car builder, such as Ralli Candi. Rally car builders understand the needs of safety and class levels for racing, so a professional can help you decide what's best for you. There are seven class levels under rally racing with both regional and national levels of competition, and only a professional builder has the experience to get you behind the right wheels. Consulting and hiring a rally car builder can help you not only get the best speed and safety for your level of experience, but a professional will help you save money trying to modify a car that's not worthy of rally racing.

Hit The Course

Get familiar with different conditions and terrains before you engage in an actual race. Instead of trying your wheels out on the street, make sure you practice on designated rally courses. Practicing on different courses, and driving with a navigator, will help you learn how to safely operate under all conditions and on all types of terrain. You also need to have a feel for how your car operates, so practicing is the only way to avoid unnecessary mistakes and dangers on race day.
