The new race for A series powered pre '66 Sports and GT cars is quite interesting - The Weslake Cup. Anyone know if this will include some of the Mini specials like the DART, Jem, Marcos, Ogle, Unipower or Deep Sanderson? Are front wheel drive permitted?

WEC is streamed on its own site i thought. I am sure MinIMM watches it, i don't know if he pays or not.

We watched the Daytona 24 on IMSA.com

Thought WEC is subs (Espec LM), and watched Daytona (plus Sebring on the w/end) on yootoob. Maybe I didn't need to......

Live streaming was brilliant all weekend - lost it briefly a couple of times but pretty certain that was connection at my end. All made more enjoyable by listening to the familiar voice of a member of my family far more knowledgeable than I am.

Surely the streaming gives significantly more exposure which in turn helps keep advertisers and sponsors happy.

Quite a few F1 cars without major sponsors . . . .

I think the WEC streaming is about 35 Euros for all 9 races and qualifying sessions this year. Not bad value really.

Maybe I'm just freeloading on his subscription for once. Nice to be of an age where I get my own back! Oh hang on, we watched LM on Eurosport as part of our BT package.

I honestly don't know is if it was a paid for stream or not TBH.

Yes I have never been able to understand why BCE was so against F1 publicising itself to the wider world. It's what the sponsors want, more exposure. As I said above, GW certainly makes the turnstiles click round. And their social marketing campaign won't hurt that.

They've got a cracking team to do the commentary and interviews. As you say, makes it even more enjoyable!

Lol. Only problem was the driver. I was somewhat slower than in testing and frankly I don't know why except I kept short shifting and only realised towards the end of the sprint yesterday. Possibly a legacy of qualifying when I only did 4 greasy laps. Full report to follow but had a great scrap with a mini in the sprint race.

Excellent couple of days although distinctly breezy with very occasional blue sky and sunshine. Lots of photos taken - will post link to some later.

Peter, we all have enough experience to see (not to do for me!) what's happening. The Golf performance "surprised" many people and one Capri driver finishing 3rd said it to the excellent speaker. During qually you got briefly the pole when the track was wet. So drivers/chassis are good. Then you slowly went down on the classification sheet when the track was getting dry. Same combination of driver/chassis but the engine does matter.
As to the level of driving when I see were RaphaŽl, Ric Wood, Berger and Soper for instance arrived the words highly competitive are few.
Congratulations for your weekend. Honest.

AFAIK, and happy to be corrected, I would add WRC, WEC, IMSA and Moto GP at least to the list.... (Although unofficial streams exist for some. )
WRC and WEC (and presumably MotoGP) are behind a paywall. IMSA is free. Along with ELMS, Blancpain, F3, Formula Renault, European GT4, IndyCar practice and support races, occasional Aussie races, etc...most of those archived on YouTube too, so you don't have to watch live.

I was at Sebring over the weekend and the whole race was already online before I got home!

Lucky you- looked like warmer and drier than Goodwood! I now remember why I watch the streams via yootoob- no ad breaks.

Anyway, we digress.....
