What Is Your Favorite Automotive Racing?

What do our forum members prefer? I have listed most of the different categories, I know there are about 20 others but these are the most popular. What are you a fan of?

Formula Racing
Touring Car Racing (Trans Am)
Sports Car Racing (GT)
Production Car Racing
Stock Car Racing (NASCAR)
Rallying
Drag Racing
Off-Road Racing
Dirt Track
Autocross
Kart Racing
Historic Motorsport (is this really racing?)

For me it's a toss-up between Formula and Drag racing.

A big +1 on that. My grandmother is the only other race fan in the family (she's 94) so we always get together to watch the race. She has been a race fan forever and likes to tell me about watching Fangio at Silverstone back in the day. Now she's a Hamilton fan, while I root for Vettel. Go RBR!

I admire a select few racers, Kenny Roberts and the Andretti clan come to mind. I did enjoy watching the RS Spyder race but I'd much rather be somewhere in the country killing flies with my own windshield than ever sitting in front of the flatscreen.

I liked Indy Car around the time Nigel Mansell came from F1 to the states. There was a great 4 year period there. Now F1 is no longer a boat race, so it is kinds fun to watch.
