COMMENT: 14 & 15 July 2018 – Toronto IndyCar & New York Formula E

Street racing single seaters.

  • Formula E – New York double-header season finale;
  • IndyCar – Toronto GP;

Between the World Cup and getting out and about at weekends I’ve fallen behind on MotoGP, when there is a clear weekend with not much else happening I’ll catch up.

I also want to get caught up with ITV’s nightly highlights of the Tour de France!

COMMENT: 7 & 8 July 2018 – British GP & Iowa IndyCar

A really good pair of races this week!

  • F1 – British GP, Silverstone;
  • Indycar – Iowa 300, Iowa Speedway;

I must admit, being tired from not sleeping due to the ongoing heat and humidity made it hard to concentrate at times.

This blog appears late courtesy of the World Cup! I don’t usually follow football other than international tournaments and this one swept me along.

COMMENT: 1 July 2018 – Austrian GP

With the ongoing World Cup and some quite oppressive humidity here in southern England I only caught one race this past weekend.

  • F1 – Austrian GP, Red Bull Ring;

To be honest after a long run of consecutive F1 and/or IndyCar races, plus Le Mans, I’m looking forward to the summer break now.

COMMENT: 23/24 June 2018 – Paul Ricard & Elkhart Lake

Last weekend I watched just the two races:

  • F1 – French GP, Paul Ricard, Le Castellet.
  • IndyCar – Road America, Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin.

I also caught the 3rd BTCC race at Croft, Dan Lloyd taking a maiden win from the reverse-grid race – and apparently some bones of contention through the day amongst title contenders.

COMMENT: 16/17 June 2018 Le Mans

In some 17 years of following the race from afar, the 2018 edition wouldn’t rank in my top ten or fifteen. On the positive side there were some prominent highlights: a worthy winning team, a true test of endurance among the new LMP1 cars, some fascinating F1 visitors with very different approaches, a much better GT race than expected. And I once again enjoyed being a tiny part of the online endurance racing family.

COMMENT: 9/10 June 2018 Canada, Texas & Switzerland

Some of the races I’ve been watching.

  • IndyCar – DXC Technology 600, Fort Worth, Texas;
  • FE – Zürich ePrix, Switzerland;
  • F1 – Canadian Grand Prix, Montreal, Canada;

Times are approximate and in British Summer Time.

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!
