Rallying is possibly the most dangerous, yet spectator-thrilling motorsport there is. Where else can you get close enough to the course to witness the concentration on a drivers' face, or receive a shower of dirt as one of the 300bhp beasts rounds a bend?

The above are just two reasons why the World Rally Championship has such a huge global following, with tens of thousands of fans turning up to each event.
