Hate nascar. What to watch?

Since ive gotten more involved in modding my 335, and tracking the car, I figured Id enjoy watching a little racing. I hated nascar. Same looking cars driving in a circle was not exciting to me.

What events do cars like the m3 alms participate in? I have nearly every tv channel, so if you could point me to a particular race or something, id appreciate it.

And I remember reading about a 335 that was in an endurance race in australia i believe, and won, but i dont remember any details about that.

Thanks

F1. ALMS. GrandAm. Koni Challenge. Speed World Challenge. LMES.

www.motorsport.com is a great place to keep up with the various series.

Understandable.

SuperGT is really impressive, but hard to follow as their is NO coverage on TV here. All of the others I mentioned get some sort of airtime on Speed or NBC or ESPN or something.

I feel the same way. NASCAR doesn't appeal to me at all, but I'd watch other motorsports. Discovery HD Theater airs the WRC (World Rally Championships) which is really fun to watch. So far, it's about the only racing series aired in the U.S. that gets my attention.

Thanks for the suggestions MuchMoore, I'll try a few of those.

WRC on HDTheater!!!

Good lord, these fellows make every other series look like a calm, repetitive drive in the park. Simply amazing, on something resembling real roads occassionally.
