Auto racing is a competitive motorsport that involves the racing of automobiles.

Since the introduction of the vehicle, there has been auto racing. Races of different kinds were organized, the earliest of which was documented in 1867. Many of the early events were essentially reliability tests aimed at establishing that these new machines were a viable source of transportation, but they quickly grew in importance as a means for automakers to exhibit their products. Specialist racing automobiles were evolved by the 1930s.

There are now a variety of categories, each with its own set of laws and restrictions.

On August 30, 1867, at 4:30 a.m., the first organized match race of two self-powered road vehicles along a defined course took place between Ashton-under-Lyne and Old Trafford, a distance of eight miles. Isaac Watt Boulton’s vehicle took first place.

Internal combustion car racing began soon after the first practical gasoline-fueled autos were built. Monsieur Fossier, the principal editor of the Paris journal Le Vélocipède, held the first planned contest on April 28, 1887. From Neuilly Bridge to the Bois de Boulogne, it was 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) long.

The Parisian publication Le Petit Journal arranged the world’s first motor racing race, from Paris to Rouen, on July 22, 1894. A ten-franc admission fee was paid by 102 contestants.

The Thanksgiving Day Chicago Times-Herald race, held on November 28, 1895, is widely considered to be the first American vehicle race. The event’s publicity in the press sparked a surge of interest in the vehicle in the United States.

The Targa Florio was an open-road endurance car event conducted in the Sicilian highlands near Palermo, the island’s capital. Between 1955 and 1973, it was the oldest sports car racing event, having been founded in 1906 and been a member of the World Sportscar Championship.

With France dominating the car industry and racing, the ACF organized a number of significant international races, generally starting or ending in Paris and linking to another large city in France or Europe.


The world’s first purpose-built motor racing track, Aspendale Racecourse in Australia, opened in January 1906. The pear-shaped track was over a mile long, with slightly banked turns and a crushed cement gravel surface.

Brooklands in Surrey, which opened in June 1907, was the first purpose-built ‘banked’ motor racing site. It had a concrete track of 4.43 kilometers (2.75 miles) with high-speed banked bends.

The 2.5-mile-long (4.0-kilometer) Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana, is one of the oldest purpose-built car racing circuits in the United States that is still in operation. With a peak capacity of almost 257,000 seated spectators, it is the world’s biggest sports facility of any kind.

Bill France, Sr. created NASCAR on February 21, 1948, with the support of a few other racers at the time. On June 19, 1949, in Daytona Beach, Florida, the first NASCAR “Strictly Stock” race was held.

The FIA replaced the World Championship for Sports Vehicles with the International Championship for GT Manufacturers in 1962, and sports cars briefly took a second seat to GT cars.

The Winston Cup Series was NASCAR’s main series from 1962 to 2003, and it was sponsored by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company’s Winston cigarette brand. The improvements brought about by RJR’s involvement, as well as the decrease of the calendar from 56 to 34 races each year, ushered in the “modern age” of NASCAR in 1972.

The American Le Mans Series, which debuted in 1998, evolved from the IMSA GT Series. The European races later evolved into the Le Mans Series, which included prototypes and GT cars.

Turismo Carretera (Road racing, lit., Road Touring) is a prominent touring car racing series in Argentina, and one of the world’s oldest ongoing automobile racing series. In 1931, the inaugural TC competition was held, with 12 races held in different provinces. The TC was won by future Formula One driver Juan Manuel Fangio (Chevrolet) in 1940 and 1941. The series’ Chevrolet-Ford rivalry began around this time, with Ford claiming the majority of the series’ triumphs.
