I believe that the Procar races were all held on a Saturday, with qualy on Friday... the race on Saturday was to give GP drivers the requisite 24 hour gap between taking part in different categories racing.

Think you will find that Phillipe Adams drove in a Belcar race and the Belgian GP at Spa in 1994, The Belcar race was on the Saturday where he drove a BMW & then on the Sunday he drove the Lotus 109.

P38 in workshop has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!

I have heard it said that the non-arrival of his seat purchase funding was what precipitated the final demise of Lotus.No idea how Belcar was funded or if it paid him.

Thanks. Much appreciated. Great intro. I will tune in as much as I can during the event.

No problem, that's what the guide is for!

For those with absolutely no knowledge of sportscar racing, and don't know where to start watching, here's everything you need.

Timetable, entry lists, spotter guides, live timing, streaming details, videos, news, previews, etc.

Well.. You can (and should) potter over to the sportscar forum, but it's clear even from the opening post here that many are not. Not all opening posts are as good as Matts, but you'll still need to go and find a non-American stream, live timing and time zone information, so not quite exactly the same thing.

Delete if it's considered spam, but it's without a doubt useful for those not familiar with sportscars (we are a niche bunch after all!), especially those watching for the Alonso factor.

... and get suspended for an analysis that someone doesn't like, no thanks!

I'll stick to the F1 Forum!

So... Mr Norris isn’t in F1 just yet.. but he is/was on that trajectory.. however after the comments Here about Mr Brown’s car/team setup... is it still likely?

No negative crap like this from the primary driver Mr Alonso I notice..

Being as Mr B will get a dividend if Lando gets in F1, I doubt it will do too much harm

He's not wrong regarding the aero kit. The oreca was significantly better last year, especially using the standard kit but in low drag setup. The updated Ligier doesn't appear to have closed the gap.

so i got out of my comfort zone and watched a couple of hours of the free live feed of the 24. all be it i watched in small chucks at a time...20-30 min here and there kind of thing.

certainly the actual racing was enjoyable but i found the quality of the live stream, lack of on screen graphics and the commentating made it more confusing then it should have been. in some ways i felt i was watching a broadcast from the 90's.

obviously there is a lot more to keep track of but i felt that more often then not this was not solely down to my lack of knowledge as the announcers were often struggling to match their comments to the actual cars/images on screen (which could easily be a function of having to fill up 24 hours with talking).

but then there was the lack of resolution and bandwidth of the live feed. while it was ok on my mobile, casting it to my TV screen was not good.

maybe not the the right thread for this point, but while i enjoyed just watching racing and not really caring about who was in what car (a new world to discover) but there was a noticeable lack of broadcasting polish which i have come to expect not just from F1 but all sports i watch which happen to be behind a pay wall.

definitely spoiled in terms of picture quality so without a proper HD stream/feed it struggled to hold interest.
