2016 Le Mans on TV
Permalink  
 


Over here in the US and A just about the only access we have to the Le Mans 24 Hour is Fox Sports and its horrid.  We also get some F1 events, but the coverage is horrible as well

They switch coverage aback and forth between FS-1 and FS-2 and in all the switching around, I lost about the last 2 hours.

We really don't get a lot of racing beyond NASCAR and IndyCar ... both are largely spec racer events now unlike years back.  There used to be a lot of innovation here ... buts all gone in the pro racing cars.

... and (eeeeeeecccchhhhh) .... golf.

 

Does European Television cover motorsports any better than they do over here?  Do they cover the smaller lesser known events?

Providing you have access to a number of different paid for platforms, UK motorsport coverage is pretty damned good.

Thanks for the tips ... I'll definitely give it a look.

Tough break for Toyota yesterday.

Ford didn't do badly for its first time back. I suspect they'll do better as they get more seasoned.

Beyond LMP, what happened to Porsche? I wonder how they will respond to the Ford challenge.

Hey Ted,

You are not wrong about Toyota, if they had not started their last lap that was a definite 2nd place in the bag.

Le Mans 2016

We get reasonable coverage of Formula One on BBC Radio 5 Live and 5 Live Sports Extra, should be available in most countries.

The race can be followed on the leader board at:
