I did a search first and didn’t find anything like this, but I might have missed something - forgive me if so!
I know a lot of us have found our ways here from Giant Bomb and as such I’m sure a bunch of others follow Forumla 1 (thanks to Drew and Danny’s
Alt F1 Shift+F1) and other motorsports. I thought it would be a good idea to have a centralised thread to discuss such things.
Currently ongoing motorsport series, with some good background information on each:
- Formula 1 - the highest class of single-seat auto racing that is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile. Probably the best known motorsport series, with big money and big crowds.
- Formula E - officially the FIA Formula E Championship, is a class of auto racing that uses only electric-powered cars. Great series to get started watching, quite short races compared to Formula 1, and easy to watch (in the UK at least) without requiring expensive subscriptions.
- Moto GP - The FIM Road Racing World Championship Grand Prix is the premier class of motorcycle road racing. 2 wheel racing at its best. All races can be watched online by way of a VideoPass, making this the easiest motorsport to start watching by far and includes coverage of both live races and past races for a very reasonable fee!
- Many more including rally, touring cars, world super bike and DTM.
In my mind this thread will become a discussion zone for various motorsports both 4 and 2 wheel, and perhaps become a kind of community wiki of places to watch and follow your favourite racing.
