    racing

    Dear teachers

    Is there any difference between these two?

    Motor racing
    Motor race

    It's very clear that..

    Motor racing = the sport of racing extremely fast and powerful cars around a track.

    racing bike = superbike that can go very fast
    bike racing = race of bikes
    bike race = ?

    Many thanks

    Motor racing - the sport

    Mmm... tricky one, it'd take ages for me to come up with something like that.

    Many thanks, Berty.
