But is it really the pinnacle ?.  Around 10 or so years ago I stumbled upon highlights of a speedway world cup final, a sport I knew next to nothing about and had never watched a minute of.  10 years later whilst you might not see me at a league meeting, speedway grand prix are to me by far the most exciting form of motorsport out there.

There's no overly complicated rules or technological waffle, which is why the field is made up of 'kids' in their 20's and 'veterans' in their mid 40's.  It's all about ability, keeping fit/avoiding injuries and a little bit of luck, all of which makes for a relatively level playing field.  The same can't be said of F1. 

However, most people in this country haven't heard of Tai Woffinden, Greg Hancock, Nicki Pederson etc.  Which in a way I kind of like as I don't want speedway to ever become too mainstream, but when people big up F1 I really think they should look elsewhere to see what 'real' motorsport is about.
