Anyone checked out this race series these rac cars.
I guess this series is very popular in Japan and may be comming to the US(I think one race already in California)
The series has great fan interest because it is so competitive.
It is incredibly competitive because they handicap the winners.
I guess if you finish in the top 3 in the first race, the next race in the series your car has to carry extra weight and they restrict your air inflow. So instead of one team or one driver dominating every team and driver is competitive.
I think the other unusual rule is every car has to switch drivers at some point. The races are typically 200 to 500 miles long(semi endurance.)
I guess they also do a ton of fan friendly things like having the pits open to everyone on Saturday with the drivers hanging out with their cars and chatting with fans. I also think they have a Race Sim game and lots of plastic car models.
One thing which is different from Nascar is that the cars ar much closer to their production street models basically souped up touring cars. People like it cause Mazda owners can root for Mazdas and Toyota owners can root for Toyotas.
The thought crossed my mind of the possibility of RC class which used these body styles and incorporated some the aspects of these races which made them popular.
