Types of Motorsport
Motorsport, motor sports or motor sport is generally a worldwide term employed to cover the category of sporting activities that are primarily involving the use of vehicles, whether for professional racing or off-line non-racing competitions. The most well-known examples of this would be Formula One, which has been covering the motor sports industry since the inception of the Formula One Grand Prix event in decades. Other popular examples are Motorbike Grand Prix, which has grown into a worldwide organisation supporting several major motorcycle events, including the annual Motocross Grand Prix based in the United Kingdom and the Superbike Uprising Championship held in Japan.
Some years ago the term was used to describe a number of different motor sports which were not based on a particular genre or category. For example, the Automobile Grand Prix is a category within the Motor Sports World Cup series, but it is more commonly called the GP2 Series. The category of Endurance racing has grown into its own separate category with its own international schedule. There are also other classifications within the Motorsport world such as the Motocross Sprint Cars, the Superstock 300 and the Championship Stock Cars. A notable addition to the list of motorsport terms is the new term GT3, which refers to a category of high-performance road going racing cars.
There are numerous other professional motorsport series racing across the globe today. Many of these include the DTM, the GP3, the Rallycross and the World Series of Racing. With such a large selection of motorsport series racing around the world, there is sure to be a suitable one to suit the interests and abilities of any potential sports driver, whether that is professional amateur or a beginner. For those who have been searching for new ways to experience an exciting and competitive environment, there is no better option than participating in a popular motorsport series racing event such as the Formula One world championship.
