  1. Nothing stopping you from racing there this year https://racelucky.ca/official-race-dates/
  2. So ESPN is part of over the air free TV??? I had the sports packages just for racing (no interest in stick/ball sports).
  3. No ESPN because Canada. I did see the 1st half of Germany and it didn't suck (mainly because of the rain) but 2-3 good races aren't enough to tempt me to spend $120/yr when there's lots of regularly good racing free on youtube. F1 has lost its way.
  4. Dissenting opinion alert. I realised a couple of years ago I was watching F1 out of habit more than enjoyment. Whenever there was a pass I could never tell if it was strategy, tire degradation, DRS, engine token management or driver talent. I couldn't defend to my NASCAR friends (let alone non racers) why a world champion was starting with a 47 place grid penalty in an 18 car field or explain the difference between an MGU-K and MGU-H. Ignoring the sound issue, cars looked clunky and slow in the corners (just compare any video from the Stewart thru Shumaker eras at Monaco to any Azerbaijan lap). The cable package was costing me $10/mth for F1 & IRL and still not getting me IMSA or Lemans. So one fall I dropped it, now I sleep in on Sundays. IRL produces a 30 minute highlight reel on youtube 3-4 days after every event that gives you a real feel for the race and covers all the major turning points without all the commercials (including the nail biting last 5 laps at Mid-Ohio). F1 produces the same thing and it's usually under 7 minutes. In that time it generally shows the start 3 times and the commentators use the word "undercut" 6-7 times. IMSA has full races on youtube within a week (their Limerock race this year was epic).

  6. Wrong coast https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2002-mazda-protege5-3/
  7. You've had a mechanical fault in an epic 24hr race somewhere out on the lengthy Nurburgring circuit, you use all your driving skills to bring the car back to the pits but at the last yard the challenge proves too much. Luckily your crew and the commentators are supportive and sympathetic to your plight: https://youtu.be/6Yf-Muq04Ys
  8. You can get a licence through MCO out of Calabogie http://www.mco.org/wordpress/
  9. Or come up and run in the cdn series in Aug. https://racelucky.ca/official-race-dates/
  10. Anybody can do a BMW, somebody want a challenge: https://washingtondc.craigslist.org/mld/cto/d/gaithersburg-yugo-102-gv-1988-showroom/6876843565.html
  11. Check M4L, their souther routes should take (some) of them right through Watertown.
  12. A week ago I could have delivered it door to door for the price of a Fiesta transmission....
  13. Need somebody who can swap an automatic transmission in a 2012 Ford Fiesta without breaking bank.
  14. Just curious: What does discord to for me that iracing's integrated voice chat doesn't?
