    The IMSA series has different classes of cars racing in the same race on the same track. Having different classes at different speed, IMO, presents an increased risk of collision at higher speeds increasing the risk of injury or death.

    I think NASCAR, Indy Car, and Formula 1 are much safer.

    What are your thoughts?

    The Federal Government is tryin' to play God, sir. They think they are greater than God. Who's making all this happen, the Federal Government?

    And the bikes have no place at all. They're outcastes.

    The original idea was from the former government. This government was only continuing what was formulaly put into motion. They had little choice as trillions had already been committed.

    "Race Mixing and Why I’m Against It"
    I'm wondering if this thread is a ricochet off An Dà Shealladh's thread "I'm mixed race and I'm against race mixing". Clever rebound.

    Also, if mixed race kids suffer social injustice and subsequent issues, surely that's an argument against social injustice, not against race mixing?

    IMSA's fine. I'm not closed-minded - closed-wheel cars mixing with other closed-wheel cars is racing as it was meant to be.

    Formula Libre, though - that's an abomination. Spec racers were made with fenders and no amount of wishing that things were different will make them open-wheel cars.

    Aren't they dead?

    Oh wait, ... you must not be talking about Gerald Ford and Geraldine Ferraro.
    Sorry.

    Racing isn't safe. Its a young man's game. Every last one of those racers is a danger to themselves. If you remove the danger you kill the race.

    And yet significantly fewer of them are injured and killed than regular motorists. Afterall, it was personal negligence of safety and a fluke that killed Earnhardt.

    But if the classes mix, the lower classes will get insights into how the upper rungs work, which is not desirable!
