With all your years of practice, I'll bet you have some great stories....wink.gif

Now I have to do my home work and I would have to say Scuderia refers to a stable of racing horses,therefor the prancing horse emblem and the name.

Did you look it up?! eek.gif
Correct. The word "scuderia" is Italian for "stable".

Shame. I think its very cool. Its just another tidbit that adds to the mystique and tradition. If you dont know the history you cant appreciate the present.

I meant shame on you for googling it and then posting the answer like you were cheating but I was just being silly. Didnt mean anything bad by it. smile.gif It is just something that a lot of people dont seem to know and I thought would be interesting to a bunch of F1 fans.

About the same time you stop posting stupid comments about them. I mean seriously, can we stop with the 'other series' bashing in this thread? It's juvenile, and we don't slam F1 for dumb stuff like team orders in the NASCAR thread.

I vote we stop bashing other racing series in this thread.

Someone please let us know when NASCAR becomes a racing series. tongue.gif

Talk all of the crap you want about NASCAR and I am not a fan of it but when little kids show up wearing Sebastian Vettel shirts and cheering for him then be proud of a racing series. F-1 will never be promoted as it should be here in the states. The same for MotoGP which I am a huge fan of and attend races. Have any of you even attended a F-1 race? Yes I have!

Yes, NASCAR is great at promoting their show, in the U.S. No one else cares about it. Nevertheless, promotion doesn't make a series great. It makes it popular...that can be bought.

And to answer your question, I have been to 5 F1 races, as well as 15 ALMS races, numerous World Challenge races, support races, a ChampCar race, and two Rally Americas events.

My niece still loves her Lewis Hamilton shirt.

Let's just agree NASCAR does not belong in this thread.

If a thread for it doesn't exist, someone can start one.

I agree, NASCAR doesn't belong in this thread. Let's please restrict the discussion to NASCAR bashing. biggrin.gif
post #1522 of 4793
Oh come on guys. I am not a fan of NASCAR either but it's still racing so it seems to me that those who want to discuss it here are at least as entitled to do so as those who talk about exotic street automobiles or Indy Car racing. After all, a little thread drift here and there rarely does any harm and is sometimes entertaining. Nevertheless, I agree that meanspirited bashing of NACAR and equally angry defenses should stop before the mods handle it themselves.

I don't see any harm in the NASCAR bashing. What self-respecting F1 thread doesn't do that? smile.gif
There are plenty of NASCAR threads around that poke fun at circuit racing and its fans. A lot of F1 fans believe that NASCAR sucks. I believe they have the right to express that in their own thread on F1 discussion. If NASCAR fans don't like it, they can unsubscribe. I don't expect to go join a NASCAR thread and see the love for F1.

The mods don't need to do anything. We aren't making it personal against any forum members.

I just discovered there is indeed a thread for NASCAR on this forum:

Agreed.
Attacking the post, but not the poster is within the rules of AVS.

IMO, F1 and NASCAR are 2 series with no real commonalities.
Rarely are fans of one fans of the other.wink.gif

Yep! Definitely something you need to experience live. Just like Top Fuel / Funny Cars, words can't accurately describe the live experience.

Seriously,how did I bash N**CAR?By comparing it to a hockey game?I didn't write the story,just posted a link about a former F1 driver kicking another driver in the nads.If the N*PCAR thing annoys you,sorry,And team orders in F1 aren't dumb,it is legal within the sporting regs.Enough said on this subject.Lets get on to racing next week.
