Was drifting ever = win?
I don't see the attraction of it, its even worse than Nascar, at least in Nascar theres a winner.

And I despise Nascar.

World Rally Championship & Le Mans are the only way to go regarding automobile racing.

I have to laugh at you saying you're laughing but you're really not. Its not a rally at all, its points being awarded on technique. There's no winner, it carries over into the next event. Go drift on another forum.

Wait - this isn't really racing, just competitive donuts?

Good lord. 

I thought it was lame before, but if this is true, it just aspires to be lame.

Rally and Rally-X - that's "drifting" that is worth watching.

Classic old rallycross race.  Still amazing after all these years.

I'd personally love to track race in a classic division.

But I'll always be a fan of drag racing.

With your Buick? I'd be scared to corner with that at too high of a speed!

I have a buddy that does "vintage racing" - tubes with wheels.  Hope to go watch a race in a couple of weeks.

And (this may shock you) dragracing is growing on me.  I have found myself watching it on TV a fair amount recently. There are actually some interesting angles there.

NASCAR, still no.

Drex, no, not with the Buick. Just wishful thinking. Who knows, I may one day pick up an old Challenger (my favorite muscle car ever) and set it up for track.

Rambino, I don't know what it is about drag racing. I mean, yeah it's just going in a straight line and all, but for me, there's a magic there. It's not so much as trying to beat the other guy to the line, it's seeing how fast YOUR machine can go, and how you can make it faster. There's always faster! You have to know each and every limit to your car, and how long you can push those limits. You have to master the shift and the launch. You're basically racing yourself.

Oh, NASCAR sucks.

Drifting = eh

Track Racing is where its at, whether its a drag, or straight race.

Racing > Drift

though in drift the cars do sometimes look nice, especially Sam Hubinette's Viper.

I prefer Le Mans over any other Race.

Umm... thank you for your thread but I'm pretty sure that nobody liked tokyo drift.

May I also say that drift racing is dumb? And that it will destroy your parent's car? (before, during, and after you crash)

Rambino: drag is cool but there's too much waiting and not enough action (minutes of waiting for seconds of racing)

I like formula one personally. I just don't understand driving around in circles like in nascar for hours on end. Also, nascar has weaker crashes, which we all know, is the only reason people watch racing.

Ironically, I think it is the waiting that makes dragracing worth watching.  That waiting is spent doing background on the drivers, the cars, the teams, and the matchup, and analysis of the previous race, and so forth.

In person this might not work so well, but on TV dragracing is kind of like football - lots of "dead time" to fill with TV goodness.
