You have to watch today’s Race 2 of the DTM, it was amazing to watch Gary Paffett and Timo Glock literally taking pieces out of each other, for lap after lap.

I’ll post the video when they stop the stream.

Here it is:

Indycar is on BT Sport ESPN tonight from 18:30, at the Indianapolis road course with a slightly different layout than F1 used to use.

The Monaco GP Historique is on both today and tomorrow on QUEST from 13:00.

Well the Indy 500 wasn’t nearly as good as last years, I personally don’t think these new cars work as well. At least things picked up a bit in the last 50 laps

indeed - didn't see mank side by side passes. Although one bit of action seen in-car near the end was a bit buttock-clenching with four or five cars involved.

That fuel fire was mental. Fuel guy turns away then realises his rig's on fire before finally legging it!

Also why do race tracks use concrete for pits? Can’t they cover it with something grippy?

Why have they moved the Formula E race to the Sunday, causes another 3 way crash with F1 and BTCC?

Overrun of the baseball meant that my recording jumped into the Texas Indy race over half way through. They did do a small recap about 40 laps from the end.

Huge crash in yesterday’s WTCC race, yet to find a broadcast of the race itself though, they’re showing race 2 & 3 but not race 1, and last night showed the previous round instead

Flipping typical, they’ve blocked YouTube access to the DTM live feed in the UK. Yes Freesports is showing it (with mid race ads), but not every race, sometimes it’s on Premier instead. Looks like I may have to break out the VPN....

Horrendous crash for Robert Wickens in the Indycar race at Pocano. No question but a red flag, he’s still in the car but they are taking their time removing him.

Even if he’s fine, which I doubt, the safety fences are trashed.

Yeah I'm just sitting here a bit numb waiting for some news, that was a shocking site. The state of the fence is a worrying sign, really hope Wickens is all right. I can't see the race being restarted as I can't imagine they could fix that fence in time.

Indeed, what a relief. Nice to hear the applause from the crowd as they heard the news.
