It's one of the greatest corners ever designed, Eau Rouge.

You might enjoy the second coming of Juan Montoya.



He's South American, angry, and quite good.

I knew Formula 1 was fast, but cutting corners like that on Spa? My God... simply amazing.

Formula cars work differently. You know that feeling you get in your car that you know you have your maximum turning radius, and if you push it any faster around that corner you might spin out? Well you need to ignore those feeling and push even faster in a F1 because it grips down stronger to the ground the faster you go. Its crazy!!

But rally car drivers are absolutely NUTZ. They enter ridiculous terrain and turns at over 60mph where if they miss, they drop over a ledge of a cliff and die. its absolutely suicidal.

POV Rally Champion Mark Higgins Near Crash at 150 mph @ 2011 Isle of Man TT - YouTube how did they survive that?? ahaha

and the classic OMG moment

Accidente Rally - YouTube

Glad i'm not one of those rednecks. I personally like to RACE in nascar. Watch it, no. But the racing is fun, a bit challenging, but more of racing the cars rather than the track. With things like formula 1, you have a lot of speed and racing of the track, but not each other. Not to say they don't race each other, but it's not like you have a pack of 43 of them in close proximity.... >-> More like 2 every so often and then that one guy who's just super awesome takes the lead and dominates.


It's like choosing to watch a chariot race back in old greek [or was it roman] times, vs watching a marathon. With Nascar most of the tracks are easy to see from one spot. You can almost always see the cars [except on 2 road course, which are fun to race but not to watch]

Where as with things like WRC once they pass you you have to move to see them again if you want to, and vs F1, once they pass you you have to wait for them to come back around



The problem with NASCAR is really that too many rednecks love it for no god damn reason. It's actually pretty fun to race when you get into a good race [like in a simulator], but i also like to do a little road racing on the side. Sadly, rally is an under-developed sport in the sim-racing department, so thats kinda upsetting.



Point is: racing is racing, stop your god damn bickering and enjoy it like i do and maybe you'll have more friends in the world.

=P

190 Into the corner, 210mph on the exit.

Its pure awesomeness, just watched the SPA GP now, best moment: Rosberg overtaking Vettell in that VERY same corner
