COMMENT 2/3 June 2018: Double Detroit IndyCar

These are some of the races I’ve been watching.

  • IndyCar – 2x Detroit Grands Prix (Saturday & Sunday) from Belle Isle;

It was a gloriously sunny and hot weekend here in the South West of England so I was outside for all of it. No regrets at all.

I watched these races after work from Monday to Wednesday.

I haven’t found time for the IMSA race at Belle Isle – or Mid-Ohio. Having prioritised IndyCar I haven’t had time to watch the MotoGP yet either!

COMMENT: Monaco & Indy – 26/27 May 2018

Weekend Preview: 26/27 May 2018

Some of the many things happening this weekend and this really is a busy one!

Set aside your Sunday. It is a Bank Holiday in the UK, you’ve got Monday to see the family, so settle in and let’s watch some racing!

For me and many in the UK/Europe the main double is the Monaco GP followed immediately by the Indy 500, which should be the highlight of the day.

If you live in the US you might prefer to start with Indy and move on to the Coke 600 at Charlotte.

Some brave souls will watch all three!

Times are approximate and in British Summer Time.

Monaco:  2:10pm – 4:10pm
Indy 500:  5:15pm   <– I highly recommend tuning in no later than 4:50pm
