    Default The Aussie V8 Supercars guys have the best racing

    The aggression, close racing and great driving is the best. None of the sissyness of the other series around the globe.

    Yes, I would like to relocate the Aussie V8 Supercars.

    Actually there is a fledgling movement in this country to create an American V8 supercar series.....

    2006 Porsche 997 Carerra Coupe 6-MT - daily driver
    1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
    2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - track day car
    2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR 6-MT - when I need a backseat, 4-doors, or a real trunk, and still want to haul ass . . .

    And it used to be called Trans Am.
    Back in the 70s Trans Am gave us that same type of racing. Maybe not as aggressive, but still a balls to the walls , big bore, dog fight.

    The V8 Supercars came to the US a couple of times a couple of years ago, didn't they? Sonoma and COTA?

    I've watched both broadcasts this year for the World Challenge and Trans Am series and they have been great. Its the closest thing we got to Aussie V8 Supercars.

    I remember Trans Am used to be the undercard race to the F1 Detroit Grand Prix when they used the street circuit downtown. It was usually far more entertaining. Grand Rapids, MI had a Trans Am street circuit back in the 90s. That undercard was T2, IIRC. BMW e36s versus Acura Integras, very good, very tight and physical racing. I never hear about TransAm anymore, which is a shame.
    Yer pal,
