Why do some sports cars have metal loops on their bumpers?

Have you seen sports cars cruising down the street with metal loops on their bumpers? Or maybe you’ve noticed a short nylon strap attached to the bumper that flaps in the wind. These are aftermarket accessories that are rarely used for towing. They are usually installed to make these vehicles look more like race cars. But maybe you also have one stashed in your trunk for use in an emergency.

Why do race cars have tow hooks?

Some race car classes require competitors to attach tow hooks or tow straps to their cars. This is because the cars are low to the ground and difficult to pull if they slide off the track. It would be unsafe for track personnel to search for a towing eye.
