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

With apologies for the lack of post-race piece about Le Mans. I’ve got 1400 words in the edit where I’ve got stuck in rewrites, give me a day or two.

Coming up this weekend:

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

Weekend Preview: 16/17 June 2018 Le Mans

It’s the big one, the 24 Hours of Le Mans!

Times are approximate and in British Summer Time.

There are 60 cars with 180 drivers. 60 stories to follow. Three class races other than LMP1. Please do not belittle all of that just because the race for the win might be boring!

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

Weekend Preview: 12/13 May 2018

Some of the many things happening this weekend.

Times are approximate and in British Summer Time.

Now this is a massively busy week, including one of the most stupid date clashes of the year, between the Nurburgring 24 Hours and the European Le Mans Series.

Apologies for not writing a recap of last weekend. I actually went to the Blancpain GT Sprint at Brands Hatch to sit on the grass in the glorious sunshine watching GT racing, which I didn’t preview at all, and I haven’t yet seen any of the other events I did write about! With the upcoming weekend so full it looks like I may not catch up for some time.
