Wrc F1 Or Dtm ?



What racing would you rather watch from those 3? and why?


I personally think F1 is just got plain boring, WRC is awesome way more action (Btw what chanel on dishnetwork airs it?), DTM is very nice but it is not shown in North America that much, but great action there too.

I voted F1, the amount of technology is very impressive and so are are capabilities of the cars. I agree though, WRC has way more action right now than F1, but we shall see what this new season brings for F1.

Ive never seen a DTM race before - but I really want too

What channel does DTM air (if it does?) on?

I mean, this is freaking awesome, the A4 DTM cars look wicked:

WRC all the way, but if we had DTM here I would love to watch that as well, WRC overall is a lot of fun to watch, the speeds that they go on muddy or rocky roads is crazy

For the skill these drivers have for the variety of conditions they drive in, WRC is the one.

Yes, exactly how i see it!!! Rally's happen in rain, snow, ice, desert...all types of road and weather conditions. The roads used (in most cases) are used by the public every days, that makes it a bit more "real" to me, not like a special track where not many of us will every get the chance to drive.

That and my dad was a rally driver back in the early 80's

DTM. Watched it in Europe a couple summers ago, awesome action. Lots of technical progress that is transferred to road going vehicles.

man, I couldn't really compare the three. I love F1 for the hype, but I live WRC for the driver skill (I love offroading), and I love DTM cuz they can hit each other

I think WRC gets my vote.

I'd say DTM cause cars are nicer.
