General Motor Racing Thread MkII

It seems we do get races this weekend:

SUPER FORMULA!!

Nismo TV has lost the title sponsor but are hoping to get Super GT back soon and now have announced live SF coverage starting tomorrow with qualifying at Suzuka, at least 3 Brits involved and cars that are considerably faster than Indycars.

Not a bad first race, quite a few incidents and the pit stops were very entertaining

W Series has signed a deal with Channel 4, one of the UK’s leading terrestrial free-to-air broadcasters, to show high-definition live coverage of each of the six races in the W Series calendar.

Live motorsport coverage is currently rarely broadcast on UK terrestrial channels, making this a landmark partnership. Programming will also include build-up and behind-the-scenes insights from each circuit, qualifying, as well as full race coverage.
My feeling is that money would have been better spent encouraging female participation at a lower level, since anyone who has got to a 'third-tier' level really should have done enough already to be judged on their speed.

Regardless of that, will give it a watch - wonder how much they'll spend on coverage, commentators, etc.

Ouch, yes very close to flipping.

Thanks - I'd forgotten about Indy practice. Incidentally the qualifying sessions are on Sky Sports F1 on Saturday from 4pm - 10pm and Sun from 5pm - 8pm.

Felix’s turn

Sadly we can’t watch this on YouTube anymore due to their Indypass or whatever

That was a nasty debris field for the following drivers

Agree it's a shame practice is not on YouTube this year, looking forward to seeing the action in qualifying on Sky (though there's probably a bit too much to watch it all...)

It's amazing that hole either side of the cockpit is probably saving lives by reducing the chance to flip the car. Seems to be doing it's job well.

Just finished catching up with qualifying and that was fine till the last hour and NBC kicked in, 5 mins, adbreak, 5 mins, adbreak, the one time staying on without commentary wouldn’t have hurt and Sky did that! I was as frustrated as Alonso.

He’ll be safe if it is rained out tomorrow and Alexa seem to think it will be (60% chance, 6mm) I can understand why McLaren have gone for Chevys but why ally yourself with Carling, sure they know their stuff in other formulas but not Indy yet, they should have gone with Ed Carpenter!

Final six about to get their last chance to qualify at Indy. One run for each of them, only three places available.

Didn’t realise that Fernando may still have a lifeline, McLaren could pay another team to quit and he gets the slot.

BUT WILL THEY???

So it looks like they won't buy their way in and Juncos won't sell, which I'm glad about.

It's been amazing to follow qualifying over the last couple of days, so much tension! Can't wait for the race!
