I personally find it more relevant since it incorporates carpet racing, and takes place across several different venues. I barely even care about the worlds anymore.

Multi-surface, different environments, consistency over several months - ETS is more impressive.

The only thing missing is some of the other 10 or so factory-pro-level drivers.

ETS is much more engaging. Think how much better it would be if they added live video. LIVERC is missing a great opportunity to expand.

The thing is a lot of testing goes on at ETS, it's been getting bigger with better coverage and exposure, ergo it's getting more important.
But, when the teams go to the worlds, they're going to the worlds. No more testing, bring your best and lets see what you've got.
It will be interesting to see if all the teams start to "tighten up" as ETS gains momentum and becomes more important to everybody.

Naoto, Hayato, Elliot Harper. I'm sure there's a few other Japanese contenders I'm forgetting.

It is sad that 90% of the ETS Redrc articles only goes about the mod class.

I agree. As a stock racer, I care about those results as much as anything. And watching the videos of the past two events, the racing in stock has been closer, cleaner and a lot more interesting.

Although, this is a one-shot race that takes place on quite a weird asphalt surface. Makes more sense to have a multi-surface, multi-environment series showing you who the best overall is.

Ideally you would have an ETS style series in the U.S, Europe, and Asia which would culminate in some type of World final comprised of the top racers from each region (sort of how the IFMAR Worlds should be).

Scotty has started the AOC although the travel distances between venues are very big so I don't think you can have active participation from the same drivers throughout the series. This is likely a problem for North America as well. Europe is about the right size for short flights from everywhere and two time zones.

The ETS is very prestigious and should be used as a template for series around the World. There is no reason why each U.S. ROAR region can't have its own ETS style series.

It is a bit like any other sport where the top level gets the premier coverage.

The Stock racer, the F1 racer and if it is still there the TT01 racer wants to see himself in those reports so he has the feeling that he is as much as important to make the event as it is today.

That is the way to promote the sport! Give those drivers the same feeling so others will follow. Do not let them think they are just a filling of the event.
