Should Motor Sport be introduced in Olympics?

Really, was thinking bout it but it would be nice to have f1 race in olympics. Gold for both drivers and constructors. And also to other motor racing competitions too like Moto Gp.


It would give the olympics more popularity too.

If the Olympics isn't the pinnacle of your sport then it shouldn't be in the Olympics. So cheerio to tennis, football, even road cycling which I happen to enjoy. I mean really, F1 in the Olympics alm:

Yes.

But I don't know how you could ensure a F1 quality track in every host nation, or how you would handle qualifiers & constructors, seeing as the Olympics and it's participants are based upon nationality.

No, absolutely not.
Too much dependence on outside factors that can't be controlled by the athlete.

No, having ****ing horses compete is bad enough as it is. Horse jumping and horse dancing (or whatever it might be called) are not sports.

I would like to see jousting though.

They might as well add making fun of the Olympics a sport, it seems very popular.

F1 is certainly more suited to the olympics then some of the dumb shitty elitist sports that are already in the games.

A sport where it costs tens of millions to run a car isn't as elitist as rowing a boat?

The 1900 Olympics in Paris had automobile and motorcycle racing.

Quote:
Some unusual events were contested for the only time in the history of the Games including automobile and motorcycle racing,[2] ballooning,[3] cricket,[4] croquet,[5] Basque pelota,[6] 200m swimming obstacle race and underwater swimming.[7]
If we could renew the games of 1900 it would be quite a spectacle.

^Agreed.

They should ride 1900 era cars then.

Btw, pop sports like BMX and triathlon shouldnt be there either, while the same could arguably be said of snowboarding disciplins at the winter olympics.

Is triathalon a pop sport? I mean who exactly does it excite?

I'd get rid of sports like football & tennis where the Olympics are a mere sideshow in the calendar long before anything like BMX.

Eurosport, the TV station.

Though Triathlon perhaps isn´t extreme sport in the narrow sense.
