who races with a turbo NOW? besides the diesel audi's...
I'm not the biggest racing enthusiast, but I can't think of any major series that includes turbo cars, if you'd like to enlighten me I'll gladly listen, but turbo's in racing (real racing not track days) seem to be very uncommon to me

edit: just though, drifting and rally racing may be places to see turbo's used in racing, and oh yeah, um tractor pulls and dragsters (the top fuel/funny cars)

any others though? road racing anywhere?
They were banned as too fast and with too much HP in most series. Turbos are a superior technology. So unless you are making the argument that you don't want HP, your argument is moot.

Take way the turbo ban and next year the grid is full of turbos, guaranteed.
