Whats your favourite racing car, no matter what it is, big or small, could
be a Clio Cup or a Bentley Le Mans.
Post here, im just curious, mine is a Vauxhall Vectra Super Tourer (BTCC) of 2000
or its competitor the Ford Mondeo http://www.simontan.co.uk.nstempintl.com/images/mondeo_btcc00_side_800.jpg< br />
or the other competitor the Nissan Primera http://www.chem.leeds.ac.uk/ICAMS/people/jcp/Primera98.jpg
all great cars of their time racing
I'm going with the Ariel Atom,
McLaren F1 car,
and the Le Mans Corvette C6-R
why the atom???
It's light, fast, handles great, I don't think it was too expensive (compared to many other super cars at least) lol...
I'm goin with a spaceship... no car can beat a spaceshit
Since when do they race spaceships? :banghead:
If it counts, I'd go for the following. A 60's Mustang, it was at last
years Goodwood revival meeting in West Sussex, I was there, and saw it
racing around the track, but didn't take this picture, infact, when I was
there the weather was better, so it might have been an earlier piccy...
probably ethier this ...
clearly the subaru
I think the Impreza's one of the most overated cars, yes it's good and has one numerous awards etc, but I think it's past it's best (although the current model's shape is the best so far IMHO) :2cents:
ahhh, goodwood, i went to the festival of speed last year, hoping to get to the revival tis year or next year no matter what!!!
i was also thinking how much of a great car (and driver included) was the
Peugeot 206wrc driven by the late richard burns
The Revival would be better if everybody wore normal clothes....I dont have
clothes from the fifties!!! lol
As for Richard Burns, I didn't even know he passed away untill I read a tiny inseart in the back of Auto Express.....yet when a well known ex-footballer dies of a pretty self inflicted illness, everybody's falling over themselves with grief....Oh well :banghead:
::starts singing God Bless America::
^Smokey was a god
I liked the BTCC cars up til that era before they introduced the Astras
with the huge wings.
Some of my favourites:
I already posted but I forgot about the Porsche 917
^ dinkie lol ^
oh cant beat the Mercedes CLK-GTR
and the Bentley Speed8
Im ging with the 1990 winner of the bathurst 1000, the R32 skyline, i got banned from that series pretty quickly after that, and also the 2002 winner of the bathurst 24 hour the HSV monaro with a 427 engine, that was a killa car
The Honda Integra Type R was a pretty good car in the BTCC last year
My pesronal favorite.
you into horse racing??? WHY:laughing:
Favourite racer and race car.
Mr. Four Speed
I guess my favorite racing car and driver would have to be Ayrton Senna and
his Honda powered Mclaren...
thinking about it im down with that, there are three hero's at the top of my race driver book, Ayrton senna, Peter Brock yes controversial but probably favourite of all time Michael schumacher
if any car to race its gotta be the car in my signature the nissan skyline gtr kicks ass on the street and racing it is fast and furious
Ignorance must be BLISS. :banghead:
Only for dillholes :wink2:
ok i agree with you with the GT-R i just recently sold mine so i know they are increible cars, but serious please shot yourself in the head if you ever even think about right that a car is fast and furious, the car your talking about is a computer graphic not a car, get over that movie it is not real, not even close
Lotus exige. Even if you don't win the race, you'll lose in style.
The 1967 Donahue Trans Am Camaro :hi:
He dipped his panels and misc. things in acid to make it lighter by thinning down the metal. The car weighed about 2550 pounds from the stock 2920 pounds. Then he did it again after being banned from the SCCA. He brought a '68 Camaro to race but also brought the same '67 he got banned from the SCCA with. "I carefully shaped the number circles so they could be easily interchanged between the number 16 for one car and number 15 for the other. First we went through inspection with the heavy (and legal) number 15 car, then we went back to out garage on the far side of the track, put the number 16 on it, and went back through inspection again. Nobody said anything about it."
0-60 in 4.2 seconds
0-100 in 9.4
1/4 miles in 12.5 @ 116mph
0.95 G's on the skid
70-0mph in 185 feet
I got and typed my information from April of '94 Car and Driver. :wink2:
So I guess its one of my favorite race cars and drivers :wink2:
Diesel > Gasoline
Micheal Shumaker's Ferrari of course.
And who can forget the original Shelby Cobra? That car dominated back in its hayday, plus its just a kickass car.
no favorite, but to name a few

In single-seater (open-wheel)
:orglaugh: the wheels are not covered, and the cars often have aerofoil wings front and rear to produce downforce and enhance adhesion to the track. In Europe and Asia, open wheeled racing is commonly referred to as "Formula", with appropriate hierarchical suffixes. :laughing:
In North America, the "Formula" terminology is not followed (with the exception of F1). The sport is usually arranged to follow an "international" format (such as F1), a "regional" format (such as the Formula 3 Euro Series), or a "domestic", or country-specific format (such as the German Formula 3 championship, or the British Formula Ford)
I like these Cars.............:thumbs: :thumbs: :thumbs:
probably our race car.
or this meclaren f1http://www.mikesparr.com/wp-content/thumb-IMG_0054.JPG
What? We have Formula Ford, Formula Vee, Formual Super Vee, Formula Libre,
Formula Atlantic, Formula Mazda (Formula Russell, Formula Enterpriose,
Formula 500 (which is an outgrowth of Formula 440), Formula S, Formula
1000, Formula First, and a few others depending on sanctioning body.
Of course, we also have Champ (Indy) cars and Indy Lights, which are the open wheel cars that come from a different background than Europe: circle track cars, which include Super Modifieds, Sprint cars, Midgets, and quarter midgets, all of which are also single seat open wheel cars.
