you are thinking inside the box

interesting and dangerous but not unlimited it seems but close i would remove the human from the vehicle and make it autonomous

Well, 40-odd years of experience says there isn't an outside to that box. The last unlimited automobile race series was the Can-Am in the late 60s, early 70s. Which ended because it was simply too fast and too expensive.

Well, that would be another way to bring racing to an end. If there's no human in it, it's no longer a sporting competition, and spectator interest will rapidly approach zero.

still requires human ingenuity
you are saying it is only sport if someone can die at it
why not remove the danger element and place the control into remote hands

lsr is a huge spectator sport

That has already been done, it is called a video game.
Removing the human from the car would and calling it a sport would be like calling chess a sport.

This doesn't make Chess a sport but it's one reason that pawns don't like to be promoted:

Actually, I chose that one first. I couldn't see what it was before expanding it to full screen. I didn't think it would be a good choice for a family newsgroup. ;-)

Does giving the human the ability to turn right make auto racing a sport?

That criticism went out the door the day A.J. Foyt won LeMans.

At the late, lamented Hialeah speedway they would occasionally stop the entry-level race half way thru, turn everyone around, and finish the race going clockwise. The result was usually hilarious, because the guys who had been fastest invariably became slowest...

Why would that be? Driving a race car isn't just about turning. If the fastest drivers were more highly skilled in all aspects of racing, why would the less talented drivers "invariably" outpace (pun intended) them at those skills?

Well, they did have to unwind! ;-)

Hialeah is a horse track. Horses are generally trained to go only one direction and the fastest ones can be pretty temperamental beasts.

Cars that only turn left usually have asymetric suspensions. The rules for the entry-level class didn't allow any modification to the stock suspension. The guys who were fast turning left and slow turning right were exposed as cheating.

You're thinking of Hialeah Park. Hialeah Speedway was a different (and significantly less glamorous) place. Now, unfortunately, it's the parking lot of a Target.
