WRC for the W. However, driving a Formula car is a total paradox...Nascar is borne out of bootlegging. I am biased. I could be dissuaded if Danica Patrick got herself a boob job though...

WRC. You can set up a tent and watch the rally cars speed by.

Nascar is boring, the exciting circle track stuff is in the bush leagues.

I have an appreciation for F1, never got into it though.

I like any sport where if the sponsorships, bikini girls, and fame went away people would still be doing it.

WRC !!!! Because my son-in-law and daughter (co-driver) compete in this type of racing.

although this car is in retirement now with a new one in build mode.

http://cranerallycrew.com/ <--- here's their website - become a sponsor (aka send them money!!!!) I'm kidding sort of, but flipflop could reciprocate for that time I helped sponsor him running in a gorilla suit if he wants) ;-)

They are preparing for this event: Rally Mexico 2013 (http://www.wrc.com/calendar-and-rallies ... /overview/) this is held in Leon, Mexico March 1-3, 2013. I'm going and will extend a invitation as a BFC meet up site 2013 if anyone is in the vicinity. Patron's on me.

Nascar is boring to watch, but I think that going to an actual race would be fairly exciting despite the fact that I don't speak hillbilly. IMO, WRC is hands down the best between the three.

Love watching Ken Blocks video's. He's not a good rally driver, but he's a superb showman. Plus 660 lb-ft of torque in a Ford Fiesta is utterly insane.

Definitely WRC for watchability. Rally is just as exciting to watch at the local level too. I could never be bothered to watch anything where they just drive around in circles except the local bump-to-pass for some cheap yucks.

I only get to F1 but OMG.....they would really need to be incredibly hot, intelligent & in vast numbers to beat F1 chicks. (Not the bimbo pit babes, the women attending/part of the F1 scene).

It's like Russians vs Chechens. Can't get enthused with any of them.

I am happier that my daughter is a co-driver rather than a pit-babe.... ;-)

Most excellent that they're participants. I've done a lot of road racing but stage rally looks like so much fun. Sort of what we hillbillies did growing up in the rural Midwest as part of our everyday lives just getting around. I just don't know if I want to wreck that many cars. I think it makes NASCAR look like a bunch of sissies. Who stops driving because the road gets a bit damp?
