    Which other series do you watch and if you do, who do you support?

    Here are mine:

    Indy Car Series – Helio Castroneves, Takuma Sato, Tony Kanaan

    Moto GP – Rossi, Lorenzo, Pedrosa

    Renault World Series – Brendon Hartley, Daniel Ricciardo

    Le Mans Series – Aston Martin



    I support…

    V8 Supercars – Holden, Garth Tander, Lee Holdsworth, Michael Caruso, Jason Bright

    Moto GP – Yamaha, Casey Stoner

    NASCAR – Marcus Ambrose



    WRC almost as fanatically as F1 but not quite.

    Now started Indy Car Series.

    Le Mans Series.

    Moto GP although bikes don’t do much for me, I like the characters there though and the celbrations are mad.


    Sometimes GT races.

    BTCC and now WTCC and DTM sometimes.


    Now I have Sky though I pretty much watch anything and everything I can.



    WRC (if I see it’s on) and I’ve recently got quite into bikes (unfortunately after Rossi’s accident) so I’ve been watching the IoM TT all this week and should be watching Moto GP more often! Back to four wheels…I used to watch GP2 when it was on ITV4 but its not worth paying for on Eurosport. I did go and watch the F2 at Silverstone recently, and was pleasantly surprised! I think they need a bigger grid though…



    GT1 – Reiter Engineering (bascially because I love the Lamborghinis and the livery is cool, so nothing special really :P)

    WRC – Kimi Rikknen


    Dan Thorn

    MotoGP. Rossi, Pedrosa, Melandri, Dovizioso. If Lorenzo wins it this year I WILL take my life. Least favourite ‘sportsman’ ever.

    WRC. Support Loeb and Citroen. It’s dying on its feet but with Ogier at least now there’s another guy that can win. It still needs more manufacturers though.

    BTCC. You cant beat a good bit of crashbangwallop racing. Not as good as in the 90’s, but still a great series.

    GT1. Only got into it this year and I’m loving it. The race at Brno was brilliant!

    If I had Eurosport or something I’d watch every race series going!



    V8 Supercar – Ford

    Indy Car – Ryan Briscoe, Will Power

    NASCAR – Marcos Ambrose

    Renault World Series – Daniel Ricciardo

    Red Bull Air Race – Matt Hall

    Red Bull X-Fighters – Robbie Madason

    Speedway GP – Jason Crump, Chris Holder

    Moto GP – Casey Stoner

    Can anyone see a theme here.



    Indycar – Hunter-reay, Power, Wilson

    Motogp – Pedrosa, Dovizioso, Spies

    GP2 – Bianchi, Bird, Ericsson

    F2 – Vasiliauskas, Stoneman, Palmer

    WSBR – Aleshin, Pentus, Ricciardo

    WRC – Hirvonen, Raikkonen, Wilson



    I watch/support:

    Indycar – Dario Franchitti & Helio Castroneves

    NASCAR – Jeff Gordon

    BTCC – Jason Plato

    V8 Supercars – Jamie Whincup/Holden

    GP2 – haven’t decided yet

    Continental Tire Challenge – none

    Rolex Sports Car Series – Scott Pruett

    American Le Mans Series – Corvette Racing Team



    motoGP – Rossi

    British Super Bikes – Laverty

    Road Racing – Martin

    Elite League Speedway – Belle Vue Aces

    Trials – Lampkin

    Obviously I’m primarily a bike and F1 fan although I’ll watch whatever motor sport is on TV and thanks to Eurosport that means almost everything.



    GP2 – D’Ambrision

    Nascar – Montoya

    Indycar – Baguette

    GT1 – All Belgians (Kumpen, Leinders, longin,..) and Hezemans

    Motogp – Rossi



    MotoGP – de Puniet, Lorenzo, Rossi

    WRC – Ford

    WTCC – Priaulx, Turkington

    BTCC – Chilton, Plato

    Also watch GP2, F2, WSBR and World super bikes but I don’t really support anyone in these series.



    I don’t manage to follow many other motorsport series closely on the TV as I don’t have Sky, but when I’m at my dads house who does have sky i can sit watching Eurosport or Motors TV for hours on end.

    I think I would follow MotoGP if I just got into the habbit of watching it, I’ll watch F1 religiously on a Sunday afternoon but it doesn’t at all bother me if I miss a Moto GP race.



    Series I follow without fail:

    Indycar Series – Ryan Hunter-Reay and Tony Kanaan

    ALMS- Risi Competizione

    GP2 – Jules Bianchi and Sam Bird

    GP3 – Alexander Rossi

    WRC – Kimi Raikkonen

    GT1 – Not really a team or driver, but I like the Ford GTs

    When I can, I watch British F3 and WSBR…not very often though (have to use bitTorrent in the USA to watch those and they are hide to find on the site I use). Occasionally I go to the local dirt track and watch some dirt oval racing on the weekend.

    I try to watch as much GP2 and IndyCar as possible – though it depends on whether Eurosport and Sky Sports respectively are showing them live.

    Eurosport are showing far too few live GP2 races this year, but at least it’s an improvement over the dark days of Setanta.

    Thankfully Sky Sports has given up trying to get people to like NASCAR and we seem to be getting more live IndyCar this year.

    I usually catch the BTCC and a bit of WTCC, though the latter is by far the less exciting and interesting. I usually get to one BTCC weekend per year, I was at Oulton this year.

    I’m going to my second British F3 race of the year this weekend.

    I see the occasional Renault World Series, GP2 and F2 race on TV. The only regular F1 support race I make a point of not watching is Porsche Supercup – I find it slow and dull.

    I watched a lot of the Le Mans 24 Hours. Wasn’t half as good as last year’s race though. I’m fascinated to see what becomes of this sports prototype world championship, though, I could really get into that especially if the petrol cars can compete.

    I’d watch F3 Euroseries, DTM and Auto GP but they’re on channels I don’t have.

    I wish I had the same fondness for the WRC I did a decade ago but I just don’t. And bikes fail to move me too.
