Weekend Preview: 5-6 September 2009

September already! I hope you like the tweaks I’ve made to the blog layout, they should make things a little easier for you to read and for me to format. Added side-bonus: Unintended Racing Stripes! I also updated the links. On with the preview…

Feature Events


– GP Cinzano di San Marino e Della Riviera di Rimini
– Misano
– Misano Adriatico, Rimini, Italy
– (13/17)

The MotoGP paddock has had to make a mad dash across the Atlantic from Indianapolis in just a few days to be ready for this race. Who puts these schedules together? Expect Vale’s fans to be out in force.

TV Guide:
UK – LIVE on BBC TWO at 12.30pm BST Sunday

USA – DELAYED on SPEED at 2pm ET Sunday
with 250cc, 125cc, etc

Other Events

– Brands Hatch, Kent, England, UK
– (7/10)
www.dtm.tv and www.dtm.com

The DTM pays it’s now annual visit to the little 1.2 mile Indy layout at Brands Hatch for some panel-bashing. For these fast tintops it is as close to an oval race as they have and they treat it as such.

TV Guide
UK -Apparently this is live on the new ESPN, who bought the defunct Setanta Sports. You can hopefully see it live at 12.30pm if you are a subscriber to the channel.
You can also follow along at www.dtm.tv which has a live video stream. There may be delayed highlights on Sky Sports but I don’t know when.
