Do any of you like to Drag race, Autocross, or do Circuit Racing?

Yeah I wish they could give more coverage of the WRC racing on Speed Channel.

Not to diss Nascar... but Speed Channel IS Nascar. That's all it is now. It's 24/7 Nascar. Truckman series, Nascar 500, etc etc etc. Lexan body panels galore.

The only way to get WRC is to go outside and find a nice big puddle. Go face first into it and... voila! Instant WRC action!

I'm into WRC and autoX (wanna start autoX as soon as I get my next car).

LOL... I thought I was the only one that notice the 24/7 Nascar coverage. I hate that crap.

Well, if you watch most of the primetime hours, you'll catch Nascar.

Any other time you'll find other stuff

I think WRC drivers are better than F1. Any comments? I mean would you have the guts to do those "stunts" with a prepped car on a closed gravel/snowy/wet road? At that speed?

I think both F1 and WRC guys are nuts. But I thing WRC guys better.

I think both are equally brave.

WRC guys have no map. No practice. They're running pretty much offroad at stupid speeds and looking for corners they don't know exist until they hit the corner And they drive production cars too, something you could buy off the dealership.

F1 guys run in the rain in cars that go almost supersonic (or could), and they do really tight courses too. Oh, and the cars are Mid engine RWD and very very light. It's like trying to fly a jet plane on the road :P
