    Anyone else here into motorsports?

    Well, I've been a rally addict for three years now, as well as enjoying local drag racing and quarter-mile bullring sessions, there must be more of us out there

    Any road course moto. From local WERA to MotoGP and all points in between.
    We did the 24 Hours of Nelson years ago... in the rain. It was a blast!

    Bless me, Father, for I have sinned: I really enjoy NASCAR. My daughters are convinced that I am sliding down the slippery slope toward redneckedness, but NASCAR is like a weekly soap opera on 4 wheels.

    I know that Cup cars are not the technologically refined machines that F1 cars are and the drivers are not the wizards of driving that rally drivers are, but I love it.

    Local stock car racing is one of my many addictions. Nascar, not so much, but it's cool.

    Former drag racer from my younger days (high school and college). Built up my own car and learned the hard way the limits for engine blocks and parts.

    Later I took lessons for sport car track racing and also learned it's an expensive hobby.

    Just want to point out that every race I ever enjoyed watching was 100% legal. There have been way too many people killed by street racing for it to interest me.

    Yea, I have no interest in competing with SUV's that don't even know they're in a race along the freeway.

    Fan of motorsports racing as long as they make right turns too. I'm not harping on the talents and skills of racers in oval track racing, but I can't watch those cats drive around in circles for hours on end. Yawn...

    and I admire the rally car racers, even though my local channels never show much unless it has WWE or NASCAR stuck to it somehow :-(

    NASCAR, F1, and a bit of IRL and endurance racing.

    I like NASCAR because car to car contact does not have to be catastrophic. My biggest dislike about open wheel racing is the fragility of the cars. Drivers can block much more effectively in open wheel, since any contact is likely to be race ending. This tends to make qualifying more important than the actual race, especially in F1 and Cart.

    I don't understand why open wheel racing continues. Why not build those same cars with fenders? I watched a little bit of an open wheel race at Richmond, I believe, a few weeks ago. That was the most boring thing I have ever seen.

    Open wheel racing is immensely exciting, as the speeds those cars can reach is awesome to see in person. TV cannot begin to express to you what a car going past at 200 MPH is like. But the down side is that if you follow one driver, all it takes is a wiggle by him or another driver and the show is over. If I go to an event in person, it is open wheel racing. If I am watching it on TV, I choose closed wheel.
