    Please use this thread to converse about all the motor-racing series that will be occurring this year. My personal favourite race series right now is the Virgin Australia V8 Supercars Series in Australia.

    this year is actually insane in terms of changing in motorsports. We've got the new rules in F1 and a retired WC, Jorge Lorenzo joining Ducati and Vinales to Yamaha in MotoGP, we have the incredible new WRC cars and as it stands mabe the most interesting season since 2003 and last but lot least we got a insanely ****ed up race system in Nascar now.

    I feel that 2017 might be the best year for motor racing since a long time :)

    Only have free to air channels atm. Are there any free to view channels / websites were I can watch these and other motor sports. I would like to watch the radicals and WEC and give other series a watch that I have never seen before. Does Red Bull TV have any full 4 wheeled evens? Other than soap box of course.

    P.S. I predict In F1 we will see very little overtaking apart from differing tyre strategy ones.

    I hope Red Bull bring a few aero upgrades. But mainly I hope Lance Stroll continues his journey towards becoming F1's favourite meme and potential Maldonado replacement.

    Looking forward to WorldSBK round 2 this weekend, season opener at Philip Island was incredible and I'm hoping someone can take Rea down from the top :sneaky:

    I would if the streams ever worked on my laptop and if I wasn't in the UK because all the races are at weird times for me.

    You would be shocked at the lack of coverage/news there is across the pond. Besides, it doesn't seem to end too well for our British drivers. Dan Wheldon, Justin Wilson and Dario Franchitti. They were all indycar right? Or am I that stupid when it comes to US racing series.

    Coverage is fine, BTSportESPN covers all the races, usually start like 8-9pmish with only like Texas being something stupid like 2am. However, I'm not sure they're broadcasting it this year....

    I was actually going to ask Jamie to chime in on this when he can as he's always the one moaning to me about the amount of adverts he has to suffer through :p

    I used to watch Indycar religiously just before and during it being called CART or KART or something.....

    I loved the game for the early Ps1/2 as well

    there is a very big sports streaming service in germany and for the first time they will cover all indycar races live, so yeah this season i might actuall care for it.

    Usually i only watch long beach and the 500, i really loved the one where tony kanaan won bc it had so many lead changes

    Nice. I'll be sitting in turn 1 this year! Can't wait! :D
    We are due a pretty decent rain-infested week. Last two years has been dry for the days leading up to the race and race day itself. Surely the universe has to reset itself.

    V8s not being on BT this season has broken my heart.

    Indycar has disappointed me the last few seasons.

    All hope sits on BTCC and Ferrari
