I was into it, but lost interested in it. Now if your talking about the Grand Am continental challenge, Yes I watch those whenever they show up on SPEED. I really am more into Le Mans more then Grand Am though.

The Continental Challenge has been fun to watch because you can see the speed 3's doing their thing and to my surprise the Forte Koupe developments.

I started noticing other teams have picked up the MS3 too. The last time it was on SPEED, I counted about 5 different speeds. The usual two from the same team that runs the miata and 3 others an all blue one, a red one and an orange one.

In one of the last races I was loving how the STI went off road and still was able to stay in the race. That thing most of jumped a good 20 feet.

I'm always interested to watch but it's usually for 20 mins or so then I get bored. Auto racing to me is just boring to watch unless you are directly involved (driving, pit, telemmetry, etc) Much more fun to watch than NASCAR though. I wish the old BTCC would come back where there were actually teams to watch. Even WRC has gotten boring.

Freedom commonly runs 2.
Sahlen's runs the Red and black one
Team MER is the red / orange one
iMoto runs a Blue and White one.

It appears that more folks are hopping on board too. Definitely a fun time for people to check out. The most impressive thing about the MS3's running in the Continental Tire Challenge is when you look under the hood of the MS3...

Aaah yes! Totally forgot about that one. I only watched half of that race. It's sometimes hard for me to re-watch a race if I was there, like Daytona, VIR, and all of the ones I went to last year. It's cool to see what you may have missed on other ends of the track, but at the same time, you already know the outcome.
