F1 Fanatic - Off-topic
I’m interested in knowing apart from F1 what other race series do people on this site follow.
I myself watch NASCAR, MotoGP and WRC so let everyone know what you watch.
Other than F1 I watch BTCC, Motogp, Superleague formula and DTM (though it’s not as good as it used to be) although the only ones I see every race of are probably BTCC and Motogp.
MotoGP and the American Le Mans Series. ALMS probably has the best racing of any series in my opinion. In addition to having multiple classes on the track at the same time, the GT field is insanely competitive. This year its going to be made up of Corvette, Ferrari, Porsche, BMW, Ford, Jaguar, Aston Martin, Lamborghini, and maybe Panoz. The first four are always fighting it out for the class win, the Ford GT’s, while usually slow, look great, the Jaguar is entertaining in its own way (never making more than 2 or 3 laps), and Aston and Lamborghini are new elements this year.
The FIA GT1 World Championship is by far the most fascinating race series I have ever watched (apart from F1, of course), the cars are so closely matched and yet they are completely different. They have driven some of the most spectacular racing that I have ever seen, on some of the nicest tracks all over the world.
I myself fell in love with the Sumo Power Nissan GT-R, and I think it is the most beautiful car in the world.
@soerenkaae I agree. The Sumo Power car is beautiful. I was at the Silverstone round cheering them on!
Just had to paint the livery in Forza Motorsport 3 on the Xbox too. Shame the car is impossible to drive though.
GP2, Moto GP, WRC, IRC and some ALMS and GT1
GP2 and MotoGP at times.
F1, GP2, F2, WSBR, WRC, Indycar, MotoGP
I started this thread a little while ago http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/forum/topic.php?id=1036 and now i’ll be watching at least both GP2 and WRC…both of which start this weekend!
only other races I watch are nascar, the le mans 24 and wtc if colin turkington is going to be in it!
dont really bother with the support races if i,m at a gp, normally have a little kip!
F1, Moto GP, V8 Supercars, in that order.
1. F1 2. MotoGP 3. WRC 4. GP2 5. Monster Jam 6. STCC
GP2 and GP3 simply because they are feeder series to F1 and it’s good to keep updated! I like WRC, BTCC and the DTM series is good to watch too. By and large I’ll watch any motor racing, just can’t stand bike racing.
@ MattHT finally someone joins me. Bike racing is pointless. An infinite amount of overtaking makes it infinitely boring to watch. Plus the bikes are so small on big tracks such as Abu Dhabi. It would only be fun if they ran on 2 meter narrow roads so the had some possibility to block each other.
Agree with the above 2 posts. I could easily stick it on in the background as something to watch but I really can’t get excited about it for the reasons stated directly above.
Matt, I thought you would have gone for a hey-day Schumacher avatar!
