2 Nascar

Simply the Best, from a supporter in Australia

A lot more to it than just circles. Just as complex as F1 but a lot tighter racing even if they are going in "circles"

NASCAR is better than formula 1 because formula 1 is crap and nascar is ez and formula 1 crash

In nascar, drivers go up to 220 mph! Some tracks have multiple groves too where everyone fights to win. Its more than just left turns

This is the best motorsports that no one can top that!

4 Drag Racing

Raw True Power.

real fast

Drag racing if my favorite when I get older I'm going to drag race in my cars - DwarrenX

5 Moto GP

If you like motorcycles you are probably going to like this sport, like I do. F1 is just so boring(in my opinion), its only fun to watch the highlights on youtube. Some tracks they go on for like 60+ laps.

MotoGP aka F1 of motorbikes but much more exciting.
Personally it definitely is 2nd best Motorsport (behind F1 because its pinnacle of Motorsport)

Close races, unpredictable sometimes, Rossi is still in good pace

Close racing, better year after year, you don't know whos gonna win untill the last lap

6 Monster Truck Racing

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 is 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

If you like driving around in circles this is not the sport for you.


Real cars on real roads going real fast

8 IndyCar

Nobody works harder in open wheel racing than an IndyCar driver. You can argue all you want about them not being as fast as F1 on a road course, but driving this vehicle at it's limit for an entire race with wheel to wheel action is, in my opinion, the toughest racing around.

The best racing series no one pays attention to! Indy is the best! A diamond in the rough.

Simply the best, closest, diverse and most competitive open wheel racing series on the planet year after year.

9 Stock Car Racing

The brazilian Stock CCar series are very competitive and to win, you need much more than just an fast car...

10 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, Needs more coverage all around the world.

V8 has the broadest season stretching from late January to November making it my favourite

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?

13 Motocross

Extreme sport.

14 Supercross

YAS BEST - Ninja12589

15 Endurance Racing

I think that it is a fight for teams to finish and win and pretty much a very intense sport

16 Touring Car

Just awesome. So much action

For me the BTCC is much more interesting than F1. BTCC provides more action, it really takes the phrase "Rubbin' is racing" to the max. I mean think about it, when last did you see a crash like the one for Rob Austin at Brands Hatch in F1? Every lap is exciting because there is someone always trying to get as high as they can, even if they cause a bump or two. F1 the slightest bit of contact you have to pull in the pits and will cost you $ 1 000 000 to fix - Danielsun182

17 Formula E

With Gen 2 cars released, the race is more intense and fast-paced. 8 races with 8 different winners from 8 different countries, that's how intense the race has been for 2019. Love it much more than F1, in the sense of competition.


Best motorsport out ther

Flipping indescribable!

18 Speedboat Racing

I do this it's great fun, I live in Aus

19 Rallying
20 Go-karting

Close action packed racing, the roots of all the big names in motorsport. 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!

21 DTM

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

22 Formula Drift

If it ain't sliding, it ain't fun

Ridiculous amount of skill involved which goes unrecognised. Brilliant to watch and participate in"

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

23 24 Hours of Le Mans
24 Red Bull X-Fighters
25 United SportsCar Championship
26 Sprint-Car Racing

Sprint car racing is very similar to NASCAR, but it is on a smaller oval that is made of dirt not bitumen. Racers who's dream is to race in NASCAR usually start here racing sprint cars which are a bit easier, then work their way up.


27 Isle of Man TT

Men on fast bikes, on small roads. Only more dangerous series I can come up with off the top of my head is Group B

29 Super GT
