Hopefully the Jetta TDI Cup races will be as much fun to watch as the old Rabbit and Golf Cup races.

Nothing beats 40+ cars coming down the chute at Summit Point in good rain.

Rabbit and Golf Cup races were better than the Le Car and other Renault car races.

The good ole days when they had professional racing at Summit Point and if you werent careful you could get hit by Willy T Ribbs driving a rental car head on leaving Summit Point.

Loved the IMSA historics at Laguna! Wow! :)

MotoGP at Valencia, bit of a yawner I heard. After clinching the championship Rossi cast doubt on MotoGP's entertainment value, even going so far as to compare it to F1 in terms of boredom for the fans. I wouldn't go that far... but I may be watching more World Superbike next year.

Big weekend coming up in Brazil. Hope to see Lewis Hamilton cap off a great year!
