12 Hours of Sebring: easier watch than a 24 hour race, and maybe even tougher test of endurance of cars.
Petit Le Mans: personal bias, as this is my home race and this and Sebring are the two I have been to many times. However, easier to watch than a 24, and if Le Mans is in your list, then its brother should be too, imo. Great track, picturesque scenery, and is still growing its legend as it's a relatively young race.
24 Hours of Le Mans: speaks for itself.

F1 is more of a travelling "event". No one race is big like these 3, but the totality of the series has the history and gravitas.

Indy 500 just doesn't cut it for me, as it is still just an oval. Don't get me wrong, I watch it every year, but never have the excitement for that week as I do those other 3.

In late '80s it was a book saga about the Greatest Races in the World.
The Good Doctor, Mike Lawrence, wrote the book about the Mille Miglia on that series.

Sorry of course I mean 12h. A 24h return is wishful thinking.

The Mille Miglia was certainly a big event in its pomp.

But 99% of all this is just deciding what you watch on telly isn't it? I'd rather watch my local hillclimb or autograss live than sit on my sofa watching a 2d image with a director deciding what I watch and a commentator telling me what I've seen .

I think it is a little more than that and does allow for the people there and the experience of it. Probably no one has done all of them, but have experience some, maybe several tomes, know of experienced of others and it will be an impression of what they want to do if possible...

Of course, it’s a good point, much fun can be had at a local track and hill climb, but not for many!

To a degree perhaps. But at least I've been going to my #1 choice for the last 32 years......
