Wikipedia

  1. Racing

    In sport, racing is a competition of speed, in which competitors try to complete a given task in the shortest amount of time. Typically this involves traversing some distance, but it can be any other task involving speed to reach a specific goal. A race may be run continuously to finish or may be made up of several segments called heats, stages or legs. A heat is usually run over the same course at different times. A stage is a shorter section of a much longer course or a time trial. Early records of races are evident on pottery from ancient Greece, which depicted running men vying for first place. A chariot race is described in Homer's Iliad.

Examples of Racing in a Sentence

  1. Red Bull:

    When something like that happens, there's going to be speculation but to me it just looked like a racing accident, kimi's not that kind of driver. I'd be amazed if there was anything untoward behind it.

  2. Alejandro Agag:

    I believe the entire motorsport industry is going to emerge from this time stronger than ever, and I look forward to seeing our team join Extreme E to do our part in leaving an impactful legacy in each race location. Andretti has fielded entries in Formula E since its inaugural season, and Extreme E is an offshoot of that first electric series. Chip Ganassi, in its 30th season of professional racing, is making its debut in electric motorsports. As a leader, Chip Ganassi has never been afraid to innovate and adapt.

  3. Jackie Stewart:

    She could take down 26 racing cars on the same track at the same time on one single stopwatch. As did Betty Hill, Pat Surtees, Bruce McLaren’s wife, Jochen Rindt’s Bruce McLaren wife, it was Nora Tyrrell and Helen Stewart timing for the whole team, but at the same time in the race doing a lap chart for 26 cars. Here’s the sharpness, a laser brain... and then suddenly not remembering the most simple thing.

  4. Christian Bale:

    It doesn't matter if you don't know anything about racing, that is what we really had to struggle with. ... You can get a film where you can get absolutely devoted to beautiful shots of bumpers and engines and all that. But this essentially comes down to a story about this incredible friendship but told at, you know, 230 miles an hour.

  5. Kyle Larson:

    I told Tony( Stewart) if he could promise me it would be rough and hooked-up, I'd run, he said he couldn't promise me that and so I'm not running. But, now it looks like it's going to rain on Tuesday, so the track will probably be hooked-up and rough on Wednesday. So, as it gets closer, I'm wishing I was racing it.
