Water shouldn't be a consideration. The primary use of water in a race car is in the cooling system. Since you anticipate running outside, would overheating be an issue with an internal combustion engine at Martian temperatures?

You might get some ideas from vehicles in Arthur C. Clarke's 'A Fall of Moondust', the movie 'Damnation Alley', or even reruns of 'Wacky Races'.

In all seriousness, by then we will have self-driving cars that will make stock car racing a thing of the past in all likelihood.

I doubt it. Cars didn't make horse racing a thing of the past. There are still hot air balloon races despite the invention of airplanes, and still prop plane races even after jet engines were developed.

Never mind; found the reason. I still think it's best to let those zombies moulder.

"Can't we just get in the running car?"

I'm still annoyed by the science community's disrespect for Pluto.
I think Uranus has it worse.
If only they had been couragous enough to have named it Heranus.
So many uptight people afraid to talk about her inner and enter most rings.

I am still trying to figure out how the sealed off no rain vortex will work with the Martian atmosphere

it's too dangerous to hold a race on Mars because the Martians might shoot at the fans in attendance and or drivers.
Would have to do thread studying gun shots to see how they work up there

If there is no gravity will they be weightless shots that simply bounce off of the targets.
not if they have laser beam guns like the storm troopers use in star wars.

That's a stereotype. Martians love sports and are very welcoming to new forms of competition. But it's still best to avoid kissing the trophy 'queens', especially at the 'drag' races, if you know what I mean. Not that there's anything wrong with that, you understand...

They say picture speaks a thousand or million words, not sure any person knows a million words..... stay with me I will get to the essence of racing and the meaning of life.

None of them Martian wimmins are hawt. You could call them a trophy queen but they will never make a man loose his mind and do all the crazy things that lust will drive a man to do.
Fast cars, good music, and hawt wimmins is more than an idea it is the experience that makes it worthwhile.

Racing is a very very sensual thing as well. The raw noise, the smell of the gas, the feel of the speed, hitting the apex. If you have racing in your blood, hot damn it is about as much raw pleasure as a man can ever stand and you definitely feel it in ways that are just to profound for words.

In such moments you feel more alive than ever, you even feel yourself talking faster in the moment. It is a passion thats makes many go broke pursuing an almost insane impossibile dream and never regretting the choice. It was/is simply what they had to do to be true to their passion, to be true to themselves.

Hawt wimmins is a part of the trinty that a high strung racer needs along with the fast cars.

They aint no hawt wimmins in Mars, no posterior driven dreams that go on to infinity, and they aint nobody thats even running Martian races on a simulator ......

Was Butch the orignal poster him or itself sent here on a mission?
Was he really named Butch or just known by a long number string at his home ?
Did he post his messages and then fly his ufo back home?
Did Nascar silence him?
Did they give Butch to Brian France, is he currently handcuffed to Brian's heating radiator?

Marscar racing. 2.5 MPH.

This here is the evidence that that Marscar could work.
NASA made a replica moon in the 60s to promote Star Trek, inspire Epcot centers, movie sales, nerdy groupies and so forth.

They could still build a Marscar set to bring in a new fan base. They might even could shoot it all from some remote secluded desert.
It would also be a lot easier to broadcast that way. The problem with an actual broadcast from Mars would be overcoming the video audio imbalances.

The video satellite would wire its way down to earth at 186,000 miles per second for same day coverage. The audio commentaires from the gerbils would arrive a lot later, it probably would not reach the earth until Tuesday.
