Answer: No, its not really that popular over here. It should be though, its much better than the ghastly NASCAR that a lot of america seems to love

Personally, I find Rally-cross the most interesting, with F1 being a close second.

Question for any physics fags, why do the outside tyres seem to get hotter than the inside ones on a turn? Genuinely curious
User avatar #7 to #6 - threadz (09/09/2013) [-]
There are several reasons this happens.
When vehicles turn they lean towards the turn, meaning the outside tire has to handle more of the vehicles weight. Because F1 cars go quite fast, the outside tires could be enduring more than twice the weight of the inside tires.
Also, the outside tire is forced to move a longer distance than the inner tire in the same amount of time while turning. This requires the outer tire to spin faster, and endure more friction as it moves over the asphalt.
More weight + more rubbing against the asphalt = more friction. Friction makes heat, so the outside tires gets all colorful in thermal cameras.

Yay physics!

Theres several other factors, but those are the most important ones
