    It only comes once a year here, but it was crazy live, getting sprayed with dirt, the noise, and you can really appreciated the speed when you're right there in person.

    Anything that does not turn only left. I do watch drag racing at the pro level and local races. Offshore powerboat racing. Karting when I can find it.

    OK, now it's time to start the debate about which one is the purest test of diver skill. We know that all of them require a lot of skill and experience to be good, but which one is toughest.

    Of course, I say it's WRC. To win a championship you have to be good on all surfaces. You don't drive the same corners over and over again. The driver's brain has to be totally focused on the words of the co-driver, there's is very little margin for error. I'd also say it's the most exciting to watch.

    After saying that, I must point out that the lower levels of rally put me to sleep. When they show the Rally World show and go through all S2000, and the junior stuff and academy drivers. I'd love the chance to compete at those entry levels, but I have no interest in watching it on TV. That Australian girl is sure cute though.

    What TV provider do you have that actually shows Aussie V8 SuperCars, BTCC, and DTM? I don't think any channel on U-verse shows those, but I would love to be wrong.

    There is no argument, the best and most versatile drivers are in the WRC.

    Go back prior to the 1980s or so and it's a whole different story though since drivers regularly competed in a variety of different venues sometimes even on the same weekend.

    I have DirecTV
    One of their premium packages w/DVR. Speed network shows Aussie V8's, BTCC and DTM but they're always at like 1am. Gotta LOVE that DVR

    Mattias Ekstrom is 3x winner of the Race of Champions and he races DTM. But of course Sebastian Loeb is on godmode 24/7

    Hmm, I have Speed, but I don't see any sign of coverage of those racing series. I've searched Speed's website and the guide for U-verse and found nothin'.
