The safety of racers, racing sports functionaries and observers of the sport has been changing constantly over time. If only a few years ago many deaths were recorded between racers and race fans alike, the statistics of these events happening have lowered significally. A lot of factors concerning safety must be taken into account with the races and their participants, the most prominent of which are the safety components of the cars themselves and the racers' body safety gear. Through the years as automobile technology advanced the advancement of these safety elements also played a crucial part in protecting the participants of races. Rally is a part of the auto-moto sport family and as such can be very dangerous, but the afforementioned safety elements highly increase the chances of survival or, at the very least, prevent heavy bodily injuries. Because of the complexity of the sport I first got familiar with the terminology concerning racing and then the officials we call racing sports functionaries. For every one of these functionaries I explained his role in the sport - meaning his duties and assignments. The most important document needed when planning a race is the safety document - between organisers in motosports it is called "the bible". It defines any and all dangerous events that might occur during the duration of the race, while also defining the number and position of safety personnel, who are also present during the speed test of the track. I also researched the meaning of accidents on races and the actions taken upon one occuring. The most important part though were possible fires, where I had to find out the reasons for their occurence in race cars. For fire prevention the following safety elements are used: fire extinguishers, central fire prevention systems, safety reservoirs, firewalls and the lining of the safety cages of race cars. The racers themselves are protected by their personalised safety equipment - an undercap, the racing suit itself, proper socks and proper gloves. Every piece of equipment in the car or the racers' personalised equipment must follow the rules of the FIA and meet FIA standards. A racer can't perform on a race if all equipment isn't homologated. The equipment is always checked before the race or on the vehicles' technical reviews. Rally racing sadly isn't a very recognised sport in Slovenia, having many contributing factors. This thesis was designed in a way that could present the reader many different elements of racing in the best way possible, from the organisation part to the documents needed to safely organise these races and an in-depth insight into the personalised safety equipment of race cars and the drivers themselves.
