Let's see, we have three drivers within three points for the championship and two rallies left. There is an all-out fracas in Spain RIGHT NOW as the most successful rally driver of all time tries to fend off both a fast upstart and a quick and consistent perpetual bridesmaid to defend the title. And they're still going fast enough to give nosebleeds to spectators, and it would be a huge challenge to break into the top 20. What's not to like?

Solberg put the damn car off about 20km into SS1 this weekend, that's what!

I'm not a Loeb hater, the man is amazing..but I'm cheering for Ogier just hoping someone can upset the applecart..

Baja 1000 style desert racing - for when you want to just take a straight line through the landscape but think flying is passé.

F1 for the cars, rally for the actual racing.

I have stated, on multiple occassions, not the least bit jokingly, that if I was independently wealthy, I'd do every lemons/chumpcar event until I got bored with it or got dead doing it.

Rally. There's just something about slinging it sideways down a gravel road... that's got to be due to my off road motorcycle background. And in my off time I'd be driving Jay nuts along with poopshovel.

I would just run the Nurburgring until I got so good that everybody got me to set their laptimes

there is just so many vintage events i'd choose but yeah, Touring Cars hands down. I have like 12 types i'd want to do, me being indecisive and all Time Attack, Hillclimb, Rally, and Touge Drifting being the main ones

the REAL Cannonball Run is what I want to do to, Brock Yates style

As much as rally is awesome, and I really want to do it, I don't think it would scratch my full racing itch. I need the game of going wheel-to-wheel with a competitor and the additional strategy to make a pass and keep from getting passed.

I'd probably have to go with touring cars.

I agree. If you're not wheel to wheel, you're not racing. I'd like to run the western NY/Ontario DIRT modified circuit. That, and motocross. Great bang for the buck, excitement, and hard racing.

I raced one in autocross very successfully in the 60s and early 70s and was building an HP car for SCCA comp. but life got in the way. With the budget mentioned, HP is where I'd start. the car would have to be built by Hufakker or a comparable builder and have Panasports. It would probably be yellow as a base color. I actually think I could still drive the wheels off of one. If that ended up not being true, I'd still enjoy trying and the grin would be hard to get off of my face. If I got ready for something faster I'd like to do some pro. schools in open wheel but I think I'd choose a touring car class to move up to.

Too Funny! That's Gary Kropf's yellow Frog with my green Spridget following him.

Gary's car must be the fastest 948 car in the east coast vintage. He's a great guy too. My car is a '78 Midget running a mild 1275: bought it as a street car for $200 but with LOTS of sweat-equity added.

You can see my in-car vid-cam of that event with me following Gary ~Here~

NOTHING comes close to Touring Cars in the 90's

ahhhh Bugeye's, always will love those cars the most, (no, not only because I grew up with one my whole life up until just a couple years ago) they are just awesome little cars! Also being little and going to Summit Point just raised my love for them to a new height. For some reason that green Spridget looks reeeeeaaaallly familiar....but like Graefin said, HP is also where'd i'd love to race to.
