I lovveeee MOTO GP. Its 80% rider 20% machine, As opposed to all other motorsports
I like WRC next and then F1.
Indy/Nascar are pathetic i think. Coz they just keep going around a huge oval.

Voted motoGP. Also keep an eye on the lower classes, it is all great fun, even with Hayden winning title by luck. The good thing about bike racing is that you can see the riders talent actually making a difference, as compared to poser's sport that is F1.

IRL, NASCRAP etc do not even hold my attention for one minute even when I try very hard, it boggles my mind how some USAians actually enjoy these "sports". The brains must be wired differently for sure.

F1: Keep a tab by following online, but do not get upset if I miss a race or two on television!

WRC: Likewise.

Not sure what you meant by "enough" coverage, the only sporadic ones are on DD sports (and some sketchy coverage very occasionally on AXN).

Cannot recollect any regular coverage on Star Sports, can you let me know when?

I like watching both WRC and F1, but I find WRC more interesting. Here are some the reasons.
1. F1 is more is combination of fast car + driver skills + pit stop strategy where as WRC is a combination of fast cars + drivers skills + coordination between driver and co-driver + car setup (tyres and all)
2. F1 is run on a boring closed circuit tracks (something similar to what we have for NASCARS) where as WRC has more exciting stages where driver can have big surprises like stones on the corners and turns, jumps, animals standing on the road, etc and the driver have to take decisions in a split second and also coordinate with co-driver and keep the car on track.
3. F1 cars are only restricted on special tracks where as WRC cars are quite good for all kind of terrains whether its snow, mud, gravel, turmac and even the special stages in the stadium.

Personally I think WRC is where actual driving skills are tested in all kind of conditions.

There were lots of reason for Rossi not winning the championship this year. He had a crash at the wrong time got injured and lost points. Hayden won the championship but he won two races compared to Rossi's 5 wins. Rossi had no points in three races due to a crash and resultant injuries. Rossi was only 5 points behind Hayden.

This year is going to be fun. I am sure valentino Rossi will win back the champioship this year.

Default Die hard F1 Fan but love IRL and Champ Cars/Cart

hi all,
I love all the motor racing sports done by the FIA which include F1,WRC and MotoGP wanted to add some comments about other forms of open wheel racing that is not watched by other parts of the world. IRL and Champcars to be more specific. Both of these have very close ties in to the F1 world. THe big wigs from each of these sport have financial ties to the to each other.
There are interesting rule changes that were introduced in Champ cars a couple of years ago which i think would be great if adopted in F1. One is the use of softer rubber compound tires. A team is allowed a stint during the race with a softer compound tire and the other one is the power button which gives the driver additional HP i think about 20 to make a pass. They get to use to 3 times i believe during the race. Both these rules add more strategy to the race other than just teams winning race in the pits. Adds to more on track action. For more info check
Champ Car World Series
Lot of F1 drivers go to Champ cars and vice versa.
IRL ,man wheel to wheel racing on oval tracks at 215mph is nerve wracking. I love Dan wheldon hope he makes it to F1.
Note:Jil de ferran the Sporting directory for Bar Honda F1 is a former IRL champ himself.
Nasscar, i have one line to say about it its the WWE of racing.
Kumar

MotoGP it is . spectacular skill , spectacular machines , spectacular RPMS , spectacular accelerations of one wheels , spectacular cornering , spectacular crashes and sometimes spectacular stunts ( remember the Max Biaggi one ? ) .... MotoGP is simply mindblowing . Bring back the 2 strokes !!! the 250 GP is also fantastic .
