Besides street racing that we do one or twice every week, what kind of racing do you guys like?

For me, these are the ranks:
1) Formula 1
2) WRC (World Rally Championship)
3) BTCC (British Touring Car Championship)
4) DTM (German Touring Master)

I also like the Speedvision world challenge, but I really don't like drag racing and NASCAR. I know a lot of people will hate me saying that. Sorry! That's me who loves Initial-D action!

Personally would love bike racing more, perhaps more chances of accident, which F1 lacks of.... the best thing i like bout F1 is when the safety car comes out... Benz SL55 AMG!
i love the initial D actions too, but do ppl really , do they really dare to do that? i mean they are practically running at 60-70 mph downhill! drifting down all the way... it's bad enough in the movies, and this is animated! So i guess we could figure out the danger....

Aww man, Initial D is great!! Only if I had a skyline and a nice twisty road...As for my favorite racing, I would have to say either drag racing or Speedvision Touring Car racing (I love the Realtime ITR's and Roger Foo's hatch).

WRC is number one on my list.

Can't get enough of them e-brakes on tarmac man.

It's awesome how they have up to date coverage of WRC now:

thursday= Rally XS
friday = update of day 1
saturday = update of day 2
sunday = update of day 3
monday = summary of whole event

I could do without the 23 hours a day of NASCAR though.

later,

aj :)

They still use the "speedvision" name on some programs, like the GT races today, it had speedvision in the corner of the screen, maybe it takes a while to change it all over. Im starting to get sick of all the nascar on that channel......They need the importvision channel or something.......;)

That was a cool movie. I downloaded a 20 minute clip of it. Do you have any idea if that was really rigged or not? At the very beginning of the movie with the Porshe, a station wagen that was supposed to be a cop car pulled him over. Then he decided to take off. That seemed to be the only part that was probably fake.

later,

Yeah the fist part of Getaway in Stockholm was rigged. I've done massive research on both movies, if you notice, the "cop" trails them for awhile and then just decides to try to pull him over, the rest however is all real. You seem to be talking about Getaway in Stockholm, but have you seen number 2 with the Supra and Escort Cosworth?

No, I haven't seen the second one. Do you know where there is a site that I can download a clip from?

thanks,
