World Champs? nah

World Champs? nah

Im sure many will disagree with me here....Unless a motorsport series competes in other countries and has racers from all over the world [not just a couple] one cant be a world champ. If the very first word in the series is National, that narrows it down pretty good. F1, MotoGP, WSBK champs can declare they are world champs. 🤔

    I agree with You V10. I said the same thing off and on over the last decade. I also took issue with "world records" set in test sessions in Dubai.

    the term is practically incorrect but technically, the term is correct. despite all the races being held in the United States, national events are open to anyone from anywhere. World champs should not apply to Baseball or football as it is a closed competition

    I originally had a link posted but it didnt attach.I knew when I hit the post button I should have kept my piehole shut hahaha. While I agree "we" do have the best racers, we cant say World champs. Its like an Australian Rules Football champ cant be world champs s:ince they only play in Australia. Back when I watched nfl, when my hometown Saints won the superbowl, I pissed everyone off when I declared they are not world champs. This link kinda explains it. Sorry if it ruffles some feathers, Im a nut about small things like this..😁
