Question Powerboats to racing cars

People compare racing car classes (e.g f1) to powerboat clases, heres my suggestion of what i think compare well.

Class 1 = F1
Class 3 = GP2
F1 boats = Formula 3
F2 boats = Formula renault
P1 = world touring cars
Honda formula four stroke = British touring cars
V24 = Formula Ford

anyone else got any ideas, i'm open to suggestions

i didn't want to be too harsh on v24 owners, i've seen v24's running, and they are good bits of kit but the honda's are much better

Yeah, in the same way that a Sharp is better than a Tencara.

To give in a just a tiny tiny wee bit, the black 225 at the Brass monkeys notorious i think it was went very well and i know suprised a few

But to compare them to a V24 no way your pulling ma leg.
