I don't mind playing games like Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo (since I'm the one doing the "driving" lol), but I just don't see the appeal in watching cars just go around a track for hours.

I'll watch drag racing sometimes... I'd rather be doing it... Had an old Chevy Nova that's turn 14s... not really too quick but it'd go faster than the guys with cheap Ferraris (308) and Porsches on I-405 by Seattle... BMW 328s would keep up, 'Vetts were generally faster.

I don't think it'd be very impressive nowdays. The guys with the hot Toyotas, Hondas and Subarus would beat me up pretty bad nowdays. Crap my dad's Kia would kick on most BMW 32x, unless they had the bigger 6 cyl. engine.

The roundy-round stuff like Nascar and stuff on an oval track is alright for background noise if nothing else is on but I got over watching that stuff when I was in my teens.... Except demolition-derby... That's still a "kick' to watch unless they're acting like a bunch of wusses.

Racing to me is kind of like sex, not really a spectator sport, you gotta go and DO IT...

I'd thought about going SCCA but I don't have that kind of cash right now.

I don't like watching racing with cars, I like dirt bikes and ATVs. The only time I like racing cars in in Forza Motorsport or Gran Turismo lol.
