The WRC will always, in my books, one of the only real motor sports.
Those guys have balls.
200kph down gravel roads with sharps bends and cliffs, fences, buildings, trees on each side of the track.
When they crash, they crash bloody hard.

F1 does nothing for me.

The ultimate race that sorts the wheat from the chaffe is the Isle of Mann TT Races.  These blokes make the F1, V8 supercar, NASCA and Moto GP RACERS/DRIVERS look like Volvo drivers..
Having lots of friends on farcebook is the same as having lots of money in monopoly...means absolutely nothing!!

But I bet they don’t earn a tenth of what Lewis Hamilton earns. And I wonder how many Supercars drivers would still be in Supercars if they had the chance to drive F1.

A few good riders have ridden the Isle of Mann......most or all have said they won't be back.

Some may say it takes plenty of balls to race there....others will say it takes a lot of depleted brain cells !!

I've always thought it takes a special kind of person to hit the deck at high speed and get back up and do it again. Trouble with the Isle of Mann, sometimes you don't get back up !!  :'(

Yep, tip into the corner, lift your head to miss the lamp post, drop back down, continue.  I couple of hay bales for safety will do........

Don't forget the dry stone walls as well. Plenty have ended up in the odd paddock on their arse.

Fork, that's the first time that I've seen that one with Price and he wouldn't have felt a thing.  :'( These blokes n girls have more ticker than me too race there at those speeds but they all know the stakes if things go wrong.

100mph on a moto doesn't feel fast but over that n things start happening real quick.  :o

They wouldnt earn 1/50th of what Hamilton earns These blokes are not prima donnas like most of the F1 racers or the Moto GP stars. . These blokes do it for love, thrills and a few dollars via sponsorship. Money doesn,t give you skill and  and ability.

Very true that money doesn’t give you skill and ability but skill and ability gives you money. I doubt you will find a more talented driver in any car based motorsport than the likes of Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen... and most Supercar drivers wouldn’t even be good enough as a reserve test driver in F1.

Just my opinion

There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.
