DirecTV bought the TV rights and I have cable TV. And I couldn't find either race on YouTube.

Alessio should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I won't specifically direct you anywhere, but there is a Lat-Am Spanish recording on Youtube if you look in the right places...

Shame it's hard to find the coverage of the series, although Eurosport usually do a good job

Few years ago I saw a European or French GT4 race at night, racing was great.

Still no update on if the races will run tomorrow due to the tyre failures. Neil Hudson on Twitter says one team may withdraw (my guess is Lynk & Co since they had the most issues). Goodyear said there is no problem & it’s just Lynk & Co & Honda with issues but Audi & Cupra say they had problems & Hyundai didn’t have a puncture but had signs of delamination. Very messy,

It all goes from bad to worse for WTCR, unfortunately

Won't help the improve the championship's credibility and increase the entry list, to put it mildly

this kind of thing doesn’t tend to reflect on the championship to be honest.

Having tyre failures around a circuit like this is asking for trouble. So the right decision. But, yes, the series doesn’t come out looking good after this

The weird thing is also that this isn't actually a tyre issue. Per Tom Coronel this is the exact same tire that's being used in the N24 today by a couple of the TCR cars, and they manage to make them last for 8 laps.

Certainly you don't want them to explode halfway through, that's simply dangerous. But it makes you wonder why the some of the WTCR teams had this much issues with them
