I have to say F1 because I've been a fan since I was a little kid. I watched the race when Senna died. It is the be all end all king hell of mechanical coolness. WRC is amazing but I can only watch so much drifting before it gets boring. And while those guys have balls, make no mistake about it, they know every inch of the road they drive on - every rock, dent, everything is in the notes. It's not like some movie where the guys are ripping it up and drifting through random unknown terrain (stupid and impossible). To me driving an F1 car on the limit is the epitome of nerve. FIA GT and DTM type racing is great watching though. The cars actually look like real cars and there's passing. I especially love watching them race on MoSport, Tremblant and Laguna, because I've done it and it's fun to see what lines they take in racing, how and where they pass, knowing how difficult that turn is.

You guys are going to crucify me for this but I like watching oldschool NASCAR races. They were very competitive. The cars were unstable, there was tons of passing. Now they just drive around like a big traffic jam... Nascarvision shows them so much I actually keep trying to watch but it just puts me to sleep, and the redneck dialects of every person narrating the show irritates the crap out of me.

There are barely any accidents in destruction derby, they are all on purpose crashes which are at the end pretty much fender benders.

I agree Nascar the most boring motorsport between the accident, Id rather watch people play chess, but accident wise, I dont think anyone can touch it.

F1 is boring for me too, there are no passings pretty much and rarely any worth watching accidents.

I agree with what BigD said about WRC, its cool to watch them drift for a little while and then it gets boring. At the end you are watching one car racing against the clock, there is no competitiveness in that sport that you can experience watching it.

DTM, or any touring car racing, I can't say Ive seen a lot of those, but overall its more fun to watch. There are much more passings in there, not many accidents though.

To be honest though, most of the times I flip through the channel anyway.

It is amazing how accents can range from region to region. Southern accents are the most bizarre to me and some of the words are even pronounced differently (all pop/soda is called Coke here...i.e. Grape Coke is that grape Sunkist stuff).

When I moved down here, I decided to give it a try. It's okay but the driving skill level is nothing compared to this survey. In fact, Nascar is the root of the inovation-less domestic car manufacturers. Why do you think that domestics have no cornering abilities.

W/E, I voted WRC!

I follow WRC religiously, and I am very fanatic about it. I seriously believe it is the ultimate motorsport. I've been a fan of the sport for a long time, how long? Since Carlos Sainz was driving the Celica, and got his WRC title in the Celica.
