First Autoball Then Car Paintball

Hemmings Blog features photos of, and an article on, the 1961 pastime of "Motor Polo" or "Autoball," which was played with a total of six cars, and six players per side: three drivers and three passengers. Go to the British Pathe archives for an explanatory video.

Since then auto sports have progressed. Now we shoot paint balls at each other in the new sport of "Car Paintballing." According to autoevolution it is the latest trend:

The activity involves attaching a paintballing gun to the bonnet of the car which is then operated by a passenger who is able to fire paint filled bullets at various well positioned targets whilst the driver skids around the carefully designed course.The gun is operated by a remote control from inside the car where the passenger can position and aim the gun ready to shoot.
