    Serbring practice today with the big event tomorrow 16th March from 10am till 10pm

    Florida is GMT-4 so the race starts at 2pm UK time or 14.00 for those who think that way. :D

    Info here: https://www.imsa.com/

    Watch live here: https://imsatv.imsa.com/

    Then we have F1 from Oz on Sunday but an early morning start for that one 05.10

    All info for that here: https://www.formula1.com/

    You need Sky Sports to watch that in the UK - or be a sneaky chappie with a VPN - of course I know nothing about that at all. :rolleyes:

    Enjoy.

    Thanks, Bob (y)

    I don't have Sky, but used to be one of those who got up at the crack of dawn to watch the live coverage - not the case any longer....:oops: The difficulty I have now, is I can't have the TV or radio on until the highlights are broadcast later, because someone is always determined to tell you the result which spoils it a bit for me. :mad: All my friends now know the GP result is 'out of bounds' as a topic until then.

    Thanks Bob, but interweb streaming up here is so slow that constant buffering makes watching impracticable. :banghead:

    And the apps "aren't available in your region". So I'll just settle for being anti-social for the 2 days and get the highlights. :rolleyes:

    Like Slim Boy Fat, I used to get up to watch, or rush around to get back home to see it. Not any more, I had difficulty staying awake, in general, it just gets more and more like a procession. When Hamilton cannot even keep up with his team-mate, never mind pass. And all the padding before the race, takes longer than the actual event, or seems to.If it ever gets to pay only, that's it for me, it's not worth paying for. As for the E series, don't even bother switching it on.
    Now Moto GP, what a difference, that is really something, and I've never ridden a motor bike, which is one reason why I'm still alive.

    I totally agree 're - MotoGP. More excitement in one lap than a full race in F1. Considering that they bank the bikes so low, they need elbow pads.

    You are also right about motorcycling on the roads being potentially hazardess. But I've been riding since I was 16 and now too old to change. Being out on the bike on beautiful country roads with a bunch of mates, makes me 'feel alive'. Fingers crossed I stay that way! :)

    Well the GP was a bit disappointing, let’s hope Ferrari are better in Bahrain. What the hell is going on with Williams, especially after all the hype with Kubica
    I paid for Sky Sports HD this year, and I got up early in anticipation.
