Dtm Vs Nascar Vs V8 Supercars

Yes, I bet that driver felt dizzy after that! Spa 98 was the daddy of all crashes. Thankfully, no one was hurt.

It was amazing that he got out and was unhurt. But what the commentators foud amazing is how about 15 drivers all stopped their cars on the side of the track, rushed out and tried to pull Lowdes from that wreckage. That would never happen in F1. They would never risk their race to help someone who may have been injured, thats a pitty really.

there were F1 drivers in the '70's and earlier that got out of their cars to help.............

That stock car pic wasnt even a NASCAR stock car.

My bad, i searched for quite awhile to find a decent picture. I thought that was a NASCAR.

You guys don't like NASCAR Nextel Cup cars?

I think they are things of beauty! So are F1 cars! So are Champ Cars! So are Rally Cars! They are all beautiful! Just very different...

This is what the current Nextel Cup champ's cars looked like.

The drawback with the Oz series is that I think there are only 2 manufacturers - Ford and Holden.

Yep that's it, but that's what draws the crowds here. It makes the series unique because of this. The level of competition in V8's is very high, it has some brilliant tracks (Bathurst, Phillip Island) and the drivers are of a high class.

V8 Supercars get my vote.

I've seen limited amounts of DTM and NASCAR, but from what I have seen, I'm not a major fan of either.

DTM - the fastest touring car championship in the world. Very fan driven, very clean, few dirty tactics, always developing, has gary paffett, great tracks (zandvoort and the norisring to name but 2), great cars, just a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Im not totally certain about the other things but from what ive heard V8 Supercars are faster in a straight line than DTM, reaching over 302 km. I also know that DTM cars handle slightly better around the corners than a V8 Supercar.

The American version of super cars, been around for years 20 or so at least. I take that back it first raced in the late '60's Cameros, Mustangs etc.

I think the DTM engine is considerably smaller than the V8 Supercar. The V8 supercar has a 5.7 Litre V8 engine which can go 0-100 km in 4.0 seconds.

DTM - 0-100km/ph 3.8 seconds

189mph top speed, electronically limited. dunno what that is in kmph

dtm engines are smaller, but they have a hell of a lot of horses.

schneider and kristensen are hardly youthful rookies...

Don't get me wrong, I like mika and HHF (don't care for mcnish and alesi) but there are better people in the dtm and people who haven't achieved dtm fame through their time in formula 1
