    Favorite motorsports

    Okay this is my first thread and today I pose a question to the people of UCP. The question is: What is your favorite form of motor sports (past or present) and why? Feel free to post pictures.
    My favorite motor sports is Can-Am because of the outrageous design and the new ideas that were constantly pushing the envelope. My favorite car is the Chaparral 2J because of the snowmobile engines used for sucking the air from underneath the car.

    I really love going on Youtube and watching 90's British Touring Car races. Best racing and most impatient drivers ever! Endurance racing in general too, i look forward to the Daytona, Le Mans, Nurburgring and Bathurst 24s every year

    I recently became a fan of BTCC because of the way they drive. In no other motorsports can you bump and bang a guy and then congratulate him after a race. And endurance racing is a big deal for me and my dad.

    Rallying. Back when it was a motorsport.

    Endurance/Sportscar racing and touring car racing are a joint second.
    Lack of charisma can be fatal.
    Visca Catalunya!

    we used to watch rally all the time until cable companies started charging extra to get the one channel with it. I'm still a fan of Loeb though

    endurance racing, and of course vintage motorsport, not for the results but for the outrageous and truly historic machinery that makes a regular appearence there.

    I was going to say vintage racing too but all of those cars also once raced in various series in the past

    F1 for me, because I've followed it for so long

    and because it arguably has some of the best onboard videos of any motorsports out there

    I'm not really into motor sport or sport of any kind, although when I was in Bathurst a few years back I drove around Mount Panorama a couple of times (when the races aren't on, it's open as a public road). I do like going to car shows where there are a lot of old cars on display, but that could hardly be called sport....

    Vintage racing where you can walk through the paddock could count for that.

    I've long been a rallying fan, but it's a shadow of its former self at this point. GT/touring car/endurance racing is also a favourite.
    Life's too short to drive bad cars.

    I like GT AND sportscar racing. Especially the Super GT series fom japan, ALMS. LMS and the grand am series. btcc is also cool because the civics are quite competative in that series

    SCCA amateur racing because I was a track rat (kid of a racer) back in the day . Really though I think many car people would love the old amateur racing days because there were so many different types of cars to look at. You had Formula Vee, F Ford, Super Vee, Sports 2000, GT1-5, SS1-5 etc. I loved being in the paddock and seeing all the different classes (I also loved the smells of the track).
