Top 10 Best Motorsports

The list of the top 10 motorsports in the world from Formula 1 to Moto GP.
The Top Ten
1 Formula 1 Formula One is the highest class of single-seater auto racing sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) and owned by the Formula One Group. The FIA Formula One World Championship has been one of the premier forms of racing around the world since its inaugural season in 1950... read more

Every motorsport has its flaws, and F1 is no different. However, it's still the true king of motorsports. Tons of overtaking, varied racetracks, and several of the drivers are entertaining both in and out of the car. Its only big flaw is its team domination eras. If you can get past that, there's little to complain about in Formula 1.

Those who say F1 has no competition and no passing clearly don't watch F1. Overtakes are always better in F1 than in NASCAR. Just being side by side for a long time isn't good racing. It's manufactured racing. On the other hand, watching an F1 driver slowly close in on his rivals and setting up a move slowly is real racing.

2 Nascar

NASCAR is the only sport where you can cause the big one and not have to sit out the race. Big cars that don't break into a million pieces after one touch (I'm looking at you, Formula 1). NASCAR is what I would call an adrenaline rush.

Formula 1 has no competition, no passing, and no type of fall off. NASCAR has tons of these and much more. It is far safer than the four above it. It isn't given the chance it deserves and is unfairly stereotyped. Although, I cannot deny most of them are true. And yes, at times during long green flag runs or back-to-back cautions, it can get a bit boring. But what sport doesn't have those issues? However, NASCAR is never boring when you're at a live event.

3 Moto GP

I appreciate all forms of racing, but every race in MotoGP is a RACE from start to finish. If riders are within 1.5 seconds of each other in the last lap, the final corner or finish straight will determine the winner. The physics are insane. Many times, I can't comprehend how the rider can corner in the wet at incredible speed while passing another rider and not crash. I've been riding for 30+ years, so I'm a little biased. Formula 1 is like chopping down a tree, while MotoGP is fast, beautiful, and heart-breaking at times. Yes, I watch F1 every race.

4 IndyCar

I have difficulty understanding why IndyCar is placed number 7. As a Formula 1 fan, I cannot appreciate IndyCar more. With races like the Indy500 not only being physically challenging, but also being mentally strenuous as the drivers race at very high speeds with very little margin for error.

Yes, IndyCar is slower than F1, but in a straight line, an IndyCar is significantly faster even though it has 250hp less than F1. They also weigh a lot more because of the extra protection for drivers, so that crashes at very high speeds can be safe, as IndyCars tend to crash at much higher speeds.

If you still think that IndyCar is too slow because of the COTA timings, consider this: when was the last time F1 raced on an oval circuit, and what happened? Even if F1 tyres did not blow up due to the extreme tyre loading on an oval circuit, they would still be a lot slower than IndyCar, simply because F1 cars and IndyCars are designed to excel at different types of racing and therefore there is no logical reason to compare their lap times around COTA.

Also, did I forget to mention IndyCars are very aesthetically pleasing compared to F1 cars?

5 Rallycross

Cars are better when they work on both gravel, dirt, and asphalt.

This is the best sport, especially electric. This isn't ignored. Most of the best rallycross drivers in the world are in it: Johan Kristofferson, Matias Ekström, Timmy Hansen, Kevin Hansen, Timer Timerzyanov, Andreas Bakerrud...

Andreas Bakkerud, Steve Arpin, Petter Solberg, Ken Block, Sebastien Loeb, and many more race in this amazing sport!

6 Endurance Racing

More strategy, top-notch tech with cars that can handle 24-hour races, and the races usually stay interesting until the end. Things are not wrapped up after the pit stop.

I want cars that don't break down as fast.

Long racing equals better racing. Do I have to say anything else?


The sport is quite amazing because the cars are all standard road cars you can buy today for very little, but the tuning and skills that go into each stage are truly amazing, and the sport has such a rich history of rivalries like Lancia vs Audi, Subaru vs Mitsubishi, and the entirety of Group B.

This is truly the king of motorsports.

Driving at speeds of over 130 mph on multiple terrains (dirt, gravel, snow, asphalt) with sharp turns where drivers are sliding sideways at 100 mph plus and crazy jumps going at top speed. The drivers (co-drivers) and the cars need to endure more than probably any other motorsport in the world.

8 Monster Jam

This is the best motorsport that no one can top!

9 Drag Racing
10 Motocross
The Contenders
11 Monster Truck Racing
12 V8 Supercars

V8 Supercars is easily the most exciting motorsport in the world. You have crazy in-car temperatures, insane tire degradation, and the driving skill needed to muscle one of these cars around the circuit is near that of a Formula 1 car. It needs more coverage all around the world.

One of the best in the world by far, pure aggressiveness, close competition, and if you haven't seen a lap around Bathurst, what are you doing with your life?

Simply some of the best racing in the world today.

13 Touring Car

For me, the BTCC is much more interesting than F1. BTCC provides more action. It really takes the phrase "Rubbing is racing" to the max. I mean, think about it, when was the last time you saw a crash like the one for Rob Austin at Brands Hatch in F1? Every lap is exciting because there is always someone trying to get as high as they can, even if they cause a bump or two. In F1, the slightest bit of contact, you have to pull in the pits, and it will cost you $1,000,000 to fix.

This has to be higher! I mean, see these different teams, drivers, all in these spread-out tracks in the UK! You see different winners every year, every week, every race. Such an action-packed sport. Go Aiden Moffat!

14 Stock Car Racing

The Brazilian Stock Car series are very competitive, and to win, you need much more than just a fast car...

15 Formula E

With Gen 2 cars released, the race is more intense and fast-paced. Eight races with eight different winners from eight different countries - that's how intense the race has been for 2019. Love it much more than F1 in the sense of competition.

Not as popular as F1, but it is a really great motorsport, one of my top 10.

Electric thrills, what is better?

16 24 Hours of Le Mans

Real enthusiasts can race for hours. If you don't like endurance racing, you don't like racing.

17 Truck Racing
18 Supercross
19 Formula Two
20 Rallying
21 DTM

For me, it's a series that is seriously underrated as most of the races are seriously fun to watch.

I prefer factory-built instead of custom.

22 Go-karting

Close, action-packed racing, the roots of all the big names in motorsport. There's more to it than your standard arrive-and-hire karts! Karts racing at 80+ mph with drivers being within hundredths of a second of each other!

23 Formula Drift

I love the smell of burning rubber and seeing them go sideways around the corners. My fave is the RTR Mustang 25.

Ridiculous amount of skill involved, which goes unrecognized. Brilliant to watch and participate in.

Drifting is fun to do, and it is great fun to watch.

24 Speedboat Racing
25 Super GT

Road and fast… that is what I want.
