I used to be a big fan of racing, being Indy or FI and NASCAR. But to me it has gotten boring to much leveling the playing field. What I mean by that is if a team could delevop more power and in turn dominate a race or the series, that was what I enjoyed. Back in the days when Penske was winning with Unser Jr and doing the 123 sweep, it made the others have to step up, whether in development or strategy.
F1 was sort of the same, if you got the pole and could get the lead in the first turn, you could almost write your ticket to victory lane. F1 cars generally are a lot faster with open air, so the cars battling in the middle to back of the pack never could really catch the race leader. Plus F1 is more cyclical with the changes as rules and equipment changes. Mercedes was top dog for awhile, then Ferrari was the one to beat and now it appears MB is again the front runner. The fact that F1 isn't raced in the states often and always being televised at 3 am, leads to basically no market over here. I would much rather watch F1 versus Indy.
Part of racings problem, is that too many teams compete and really some shouldn't even be on the circuit, better cars, less drivers would make it more interesting. I hate that NASCAR puts 43 drivers in each field, 6-8 will drive their few laps and collect the prize money and then park the car, this should stop. NASCAR I will watch, because at least there is some banging out on the course, and the potential for the big wreck exists.
When I was watching racing, my personal favorite was The German Touring Car Series. Not sure it is still around. I liked watching the Porsche, BMW, MB, Alfa Romeos race. It was entertaining.
When I was little, I used to race quarter midgets. It was a blast, but expensive. I was fortunate that I was able to drive a competitive car.
A Festool sponsored race car would be cool. But would they call the fuel cell a Systainer Cell?
