I thought a fun piece of discussion would be talking about some of our favorite race cars!

One of my favorite race cars is the BMW Z4 GT3 race car, with it's absolutely INSANE sounds! I mean, just listen to this ;)

Wouldn't you love to get behind the wheel of that? :D

So, what are some of your favorite race cars?

Hmm... I definitely can't pick just one, it really comes down to which one I'm thinking about at the moment lol. But right now, I'd have to say it's the Sauber C11. The noise that thing makes! It drives like it should, it sounds like it should, and just as fast as it needs to be to be amazing. I think race cars are becoming to docile, and at the same time, too fast to be enjoyable. Bring back the noise, the thunder and theatre, the close racing, the difficulty in the car itself and in the racing, and not in the speed. Can you really say I'm wrong? Tomorrow it'll probably be the Porsche 917K, and Monday it'll probably be some Group 5 car, and the day after that, some Group B rally car, and after that... you get my point. but right now, the Saube... actually, you know what, I think I like the XJR-9, or maybe one of those 70's RSR Porsches, or...



a very debateable choice for me would leave a lot of sim racers scratching their heads and saying "but why?" and to be honest, im not sure, but anyway gentlemen i give you the 2016 ferrari SF16-H

That's like asking a music enthusiast what their favorite song is. So, like a music enthusiast, here's an incomplete list of indeterminate length

1. Nissan Skyline R32 GT-R - A killer in its leagues, and probably the single biggest influence to my automotive enthusiasm through my teens
2. Ferrari F50 - When I was very young, this is the first car I remember seeing and thinking to myself "Wow, cars are cool!" Also, NFS2
3. Mazda 787B - A lot of people start off by liking the RX-7. Many graduate to liking the 787B, and for good reason. The only JDM car to win Le Mans (at least until Toyota, or dare I hope Nismo, can get their shit together)
4. Benz 190E - I don't know a lot about DTM cars, but I know what I like, and I like this car
5. Peugeot 205 t16 - back when Rally racing was just riddled with lunacy, Peugeot went HAM and gave us this monstrosity, and I love it
6. Modern F1 cars - I never thought I'd jump into something like a Ferrari 458 Italia and think "Jesus this thing has no grip", but thanks to F1 cars, it's all I can think now.

I have a soft spot for older rally car, especially before the 4WD cars became the norm, so I think I have to go with the Lancia Stratos. Gorgeous looking car, great Ferrari (technically Dino) engine, razor sharp handling, it grabs my attention every time I see one
