Need to have emotes by the Mazda. Also should have something about Blancpain and Super GT in the OP since them streaming free on Youtube makes them way easier to get into.

They offer a streaming package of qualifying and the race for like $30/season. The video quality is kinda crap but it's not a bad deal.

Yeah Superview is probably the best way to watch it live outside Austrailia, it's $40 Austrailian which is pretty good value for the full season though I'm always sad they don't include the support races in that.

In non-hack news, the Suzuka 1000km race in Super GT is being replaced by a 10 hour endurance race. Also apparently SRO (the Blancpain GT company) are getting involved in it.

The Goodwood stream is here if you want something to watch before Sebring, today's mostly practice but there'll be 70s touring cars and 60s F3 cars racing before the end of the day.

What happened to the 911? I thought it was leading GTLM for a minute, unless I was mistaken

Got a puncture, then after changing the tire on the resulting pit stop they dropped the car before the wheelman could get rid of the gun so it ran over the hose and got a drive through.

TCR's season opener has a rather miserable 12 car grid. That thing has just gotten more and more sad to watch over the last 2 years.

Meanwhile IMSA's Twitter is posting dogs.

I feel it might be both, the grids fluctuate so wildly that there's almost no point to it being an international series since only 10 or so drivers actually run the whole season while everyone else is national series drivers who figured they might as well show up to their home race. The regulations are cool though since manufacturers seem to have taken to them the same way they took to GT3.

Though I did notice they decided to run the first round of the international series the same weekend as the Silverstone 24h touring car endurance race which is using TCR spec cars. That seems like a bad idea.

Maybe they should consider making the TCR International a one-off "World Cup" at the end of the season at whichever middle eastern crap hole will host it.

That was basically the Macau race the last 2 years I think they got 30+ cars but Macau told them last year because it was all being livestreamed on the Macau Grand Prix site they couldn't have the TCR graphics on the stream and had to use the same MGP graphics as everyone else. So TCR threw a shitfit and moved the last race of the season to Yas Marina as an F1 support race.

Plato, Turkington and Neal all eat poo poo on the grid in the same day. This is one hell of a season opener.

They'll have the stream saved for watching later yeah, the 4 races they had live last year are still watchable now if you want to go see what Super GT is like. The Fuji race was pretty excellent.

Huh, that seems weird. Why would you get internal commentators to do it when RLM are probably doing it anyway?

Anyway.
