Trying to watch it last year was frustrating because it seemed Fox looked for any excuse they could find to preempt the coverage. I finally found a live stream on YouTube so I watched the race on he computer. This year, if Fox tries any funny business I have a Fire Stick, the YouTube app and I’m not afraid to use them…
Per roadandtrack.com the broadcast schedule will be:
· June 17 – FS1 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM
· June 17 – FS2 1:00 PM to 1:00 AM (June 18)
· June 17 – FS1 1:00 AM to 9:30 AM (June 18)
· The entire race is streamed live on FOX Sports GO
I’ll keep an eye out for YouTube live streams just in case. Once I find a good stream to follow, I’ll post that up as well.
UPDATE 1 – From the Ford Performance Channel on YouTube:
UPDATE 2 – I finally figured out how to use the FOX Sports GO app on the Fire Stick. That may be the only way to fly
Enjoy and happy racing!
Castrol racing livery ranks in my top favorite racing liveries of all time. The old Gulf blue and orange is my number 1 with the others shuffling up and down as the mood hits me. The Marlboro Ferraris, the John Player Specials, The Ramchargers, The Blue Max, the Hot Wheels Snake and Mongoose…OK I’ll shuffle off and be old now….
BP-Castrol’s return to Formula 1 as a partner to McLaren-Honda has been announced. This news has got the F1 community rather excited – let’s face it, any new sponsor announcement is a novelty in F1 these days – but it’s perfectly simple and logical step to have taken.Castrol is arguably the most prolific partner to motor manufacturers in competition, attached to Ford in GT racing, V8 Supercars and the World Rally Championship; Volkswagen Group in the World Endurance Championship, World Rally Championship*, World Rallycross Championship, German Touring Car Championship and European Rally Championship; Volvo in the World and Swedish Touring Car Championships and Kia in Global Rallycross.
