Do you have a favourite motor sport?

Please pick ONE only, I think providing a "shopping list" of favourite motor sports can be tedious. I want folk to think carefully about any motor sports they follow - and narrow it down to one. So no ties, honourable mentions, etc.

I will go with Formula One, the one motor sport that has kept my interest. Started following it around 1990, specifically as I latched on to Nigel Mansell, a very talented river. I love the spectacle, characters, etc.

NASCAR. Specifically what is now the Monster Energy Cup, but was the Winston Cup when I started watching.

Absolutely cannot get into Formula One and Indy cars. I understand why people like them, but to me they're rocket powered go-cart suicide machines.

I went to my first NASCAR race last year, only because the tickets were free :-)

Funnest for me to watch is NHRA drag racing. Mostly Funny Cars but really any class.

No roundy round or oval for me.

IndyCar.  Used to like NASCAR, until it became overhyped in the mid-90s, as IndyCar was having problems.
