Why motorsport redirects to Auto racing?[edit]

I guess motorsport refers to other sports like motorcycle and boat racing. So is it correct to redirect to auto racing? I also think that some interwiki links make a mistake by linking their genreal motorsport page to the english Auto racing page. SharShar 22:36, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

External link?[edit]

Is the external link to justified? Looks almost like advertising. RJFJR (talk) 01:10, 16 May 2008 (UTC)


Is "MotoSport" widely used to refer to motorcycle racing, as stated in the second paragraph? In my experience, it's not in Australia (where I live), so I'm wondering if it is elsewhere. DH85868993 (talk) 02:48, 23 September 2010 (UTC)

No, not at all - and I can count from over half a century of direct experience of professional British automotive engineering and a passionate follower of all forms of autosports. I'm guessing some over-enthusiastic wikipedian is merely trying to pad out articles with buzz words which they think are appropriate. Being as it is uncited, I shall remove that sentence.
