6 Fastest Motorsports In The World

Motorsports have been around for many decades and the speed that these machines travel at is astounding. Throughout the years more and more types of motorsports have evolved or been created to keep auto enthusiasts happy and interested. One can expect that this will continue to be the case until nothing new can be found or done. Chatter aside, let us take a look at the 6 fastest motorsports in the world today.


#6 Nascar

Nascar is a popular American motorsport that involves cars going on a circular circuit at 200 mph at intervals depending on if there are any infractions involved. Like Formula One racing they make regular pit-stops to change tires and refill the car with petrol.


#5 Offshore Power Boat Racing

Offshore power boat racing is very popular and is probably the fastest motor water sport in the world and these boats reach an amazing speed of 200 mph or more. When you think about it that is ridiculously fast for anything traveling on water.

#4 Moto GP

Moto GP is a fast-paced race for motorcycles that will see them regularly exceed 200 mph. In terms of speed Moto GP and Formula One is close but I believe that Formula One is the faster of the two. It takes great skill to be a Moto GP rider, this sport isn’t for the faint of heart.

#3 Formula One

Formula One is a very popular motorsport and is probably the most prestigious of all those found on this list. The car will regularly exceed 200 mph and spend a lot of time on the circuit making the occasional pit stop. These cars produce so much torque that the wheels have to be changed occasionally.

#2 Air Racing

Air racing is a motorsport that has taken a grip on the world with planes clocking 260 mph or more on a course about 5 to 6 kilometers in length. Due to the amount of G-Force these planes produce regulations that have been put in place to keep competitors and spectators safe. It is considered one of the fastest motorsports you can view in modern times.

#1 Drag Racing

Drag racing has been around for a long time, a sport that puts various vehicles against each other to see who can go the fastest in a very short distance. Some cars have been known to travel over 300 mph in less than 4 seconds, that is truly fast and amazing.
