    I noticed :). I was looking at the real estate in Australia and prices in USD and AUD were similar. I might move there someday, or at least visit.

    Here I come, to necropost!

    NASCAR is *extremely* hard to do. The slick tires with the racing surface, going 200 into the corners, being a foot away from cars right next to you, yeah, I'd love to see every single NASCAR hater to get into one of these 800 hp bad-boys and give it a go.

    Not as challenging as F1, but ladies and gentlemen, it's a close second.

    The challenge on Nascar is racing fast while you are drafting and really near others... you really can not make a little mistake, because if you do, you are out.

    Yes. Milli has the right idea.
    LOL, I have! XD Still, *you* get in a NASCAR and we'll see how easy it is...

    Yeah, but it doesn't matter - they all get millions anyway, and all the drunk fans still cheer for the crashes. Yes, a stock car is challenging to drive, but there is so little variation for the viewer that it does seem boring.

    You don't know how difficult something actually is, until you try it yourself! I think Nascar is cool! But IRL is better! :santa:

    all types of professional racing is hard but I wouldn't think nascar is harder than any other type. As for entertaintment I think going around circles in cars that look exactly the same is for pikeys. I prefer to have some corners.

    As far as Gran Turismo events go, NASCAR is one of the harder events, simply because with the even performance, lack of difficulty in the tracks, and massive drafting, you can't really create a lead, they'll just slipstream on the next straight and enter the next corner at a higher speed than you. But beyond watching the crashes in the condensed highlights, it's as boring as watching paint dry. Only in America do you have to keep it easy for the locals to understand, I guess :cheeky:


    British and Australian touring car races are much more fun to watch, as far as watching the whole event. How awesome was it when the two Hondas took each other out on the last corner of Race 2 at Oulton Park :lol:
    The crash at the hairpin in the race before was epic as well.

    As for the V8 Supercars race at Hidden valley last weekend, the top 3 drivers took each other out on the first corner after a safety car took too long to enter pit lane.

    I've always loved NASCAR, but I never saw a whole race because they don't show it on TV and I haven't found a online stream yet..
    I used to watch F1, but now I'm getting bored.. I usually only watch the start and then check later on who has won.. Currently, there is always the same guy who wins. Other then that the races aren't exciting anymore, if someone wins, then by an edvance of +/- 10seconds..
    Now to NASCAR.. First of all I prefer the V8 sound by far. What I also love is that there's side by side beating and banging at 200mph with cars that dont grip.
    In NASCAR the leader change so often, which makes it so exciting. NASCAR has excitment, F1 not anymore
    I'd just love to be able to watch the NASCAR races every sunday

    lol I think comparing f1 and nascar is like comparing justin bieber and rebecca black , if you want some real racing watch wtcc or the lemans series.

    Once again Necroposting... But NASCAR is an extremely competitive, contact sport. F1 goes around a track with no contact and Vettel winning all the time... yeah, great sport.

    I stream the races in high quality every Sunday on Justin.TV (as well as the Nationwide and Camping World Truck Series races, and other stuff occasionally).

    ^^^ This.


    Anywho, I know that this post is late, but the championship race was excellent. The championship came down to the last 20 laps for the top two contenders. If you haven't watched it, torrent it (search for NASCAR 2011 round 36), or just watch the replay of my live stream on JTV: Justin.tv

    As per the boring statement, yes, a lot of the races nowadays are boring because the tracks are a bit too generic and offer nothing challenging or interesting (Pocono, Auto Club, etc).
