Motor Sports Previews, Predictions & Betting Tips
Motor sport is a wide ranging term that is used to describe the group of competitive sporting events involving the use of motorised vehicles. The most common are four wheeled vehicles and two wheeled vehicles such as motorcycles.
There are two federations that govern motorsport competitions. Four or more wheeled motorsport is governed by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA), with the Fédération Internationale de Motocyclisme (FIM) governing two-wheeled competitions.
Since motorised vehicles were invented people have wanted to race them to see which one is the fastest and/or most durable. After World War I European countries organised Grand Prix races on closed courses with dirt track racing becoming popular in the United States.
The Grand Prix circuit became more formally organised after World War II, with stock car racing and drag racing becoming established in the United States.
