Motorsport is defined as, “a sport involving the racing of motor vehicles.” The term motorsport is a large umbrella that encompasses quite a few types of races. Be it F1 Grand Prix, Le Mans or WRC (World Rally Cross, for first time readers), all these come under the category of motorsport. One such category is called TSD Rally, standing for Time, Speed and Distance respectively. A TSD Rally is usually conducted on standard motor able roads and the cars participating do not need to undergo any sort of special modifications to take part in the race. The rally is based on the mathematical formula that speed = distance/ time. Here constant time calculations are required as the average speed and distance is provided. The basic requirements to take part in a TSD Rally are, ability to use a scientific computation device, aka a calculator, an understanding of road signs and the capability to navigate a driver that can follow instructions. If you have all these check marked then the rest is smooth sailing. Not really, as we found out with the Range Rover Autobiography and the grueling path that lay before us as part of the Royal Rajasthan Rally.
