Let me get my bias out of the way, right up front—I’m not a NASCAR fan. Though I’ve tried at various times to convince myself that I like NASCAR—in the same way that I occasionally try to convince myself that I like Brussell Sprouts—I just can’t do it.

Whether it is the British touring car series, the Aussie V8 Supercars, or the granddaddy of them all the German DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft) series, you pack a full grid of high-tech, high-speed, full-bodied cars on a road racing circuit and action packed racing excitement is going to ensue.
