I haven't seen a thread about this, not from what I recall at least. So here's one asking a simple question, one which I answered in detail recently: What do you think are some of the greatest single seasons of motorsport ever? Actually, if you'd like, how about a consecutive set of seasons which you think were all great for one reason or another? Standout and/or marquee individual races (i.e. Le Mans, Nurburgring, Daytona, Pikes Peak) are fair game here as well.

As mentioned, here is the list of my personal favourites:
Formula 1 – 1974-77
Formula 1 – 1981-83
Formula 1 – 1997
Formula 1 – 1999
Formula 1 – 2003
Formula 1 – 2008–10
Formula 1 – 2012
BTCC – 1995 & 1998
ITCC – 1996
Le Mans – 1998-99
WEC – 2016-17
Formula E – 2018-19
Super GT – 2010, 2014, 2017-18
WRC – 1997-2003
WRC – 2017-20
WTCR – 2018-19
500cc – 2000
MotoGP – 2006
MotoGP – 2020
WorldSBK – 1998-2000
WorldSBK – 2012 & 2014
Speedway – 2019

Absolutely agree with these two. Could never get bored watching the races from those years. 1992 is also a fantastic year if you sit and watch the season review.

The Formula One seasons I found exciting as I remember them at the time would be 1997, 1999 and 2003. I was also captivated by 2009, 2010 and 2012. For seasons since I've been a fan it is only in retrospect that I have come to appreciate 2006, 2007 and 2008.

Thinking about it, I tend to judge seasons by their finale's... so for that reason I'd say F1 2008, DTM 2012 and BTCC 2019 are some that spring to mind. I think the Rolex 24 in 2007 was pretty intense from what I remember.
