Motorsports is a group of competitive events that involve the use of motorized vehicles with four wheels.
The objective of the sport is to achieve the fastest possible time by driving around laps. There are two types of races: open wheel racing and enclosed wheel racing. Open wheel racing is when the wheels are outside the vehicle and there is no bodywork covering the wheels. Formula One, Formula E, and the IndyCar Series are all open wheel racing. Enclosed racing is where the wheels of the vehicle are covered by the bodywork of the vehicle. Enclosed racing includes sports car racing, stock car racing, touring car racing, and off-road racing.
Each driver races for themselves.
