I thought F1 is much the same as Champ Car in US. Sorry to hear that US didn't show the F1 races live on the local channel. I think it is because it not popular there as the Champ Car and NASCAR. I'm I right?
The next stop is here in Malaysia, but don't think I can afford for the ticket. I can buy few DVRW drive with the F1's ticket price.
Yeah, I'm a big Ferrari fan. But a bigger fan of their street cars than the race team. I think Michael Schumacher is pretty good, but I'm more of a fan of Ferrari's machines and technology. I wish I had Michael's Job.
In the US, NASCAR is tops among auto sports. It's a really big thing on the east coast, especially the southern states. However I think the local channel around here will show the only F1 race that takes place in the US, the one at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The closest thing we have to F1 racing in the US is the IRL (Indy Racing League) and the CART Series. IRL uses normally-aspirated v-10's, while the CART car's use turbocharged v-8's. Check out the comparison's here:
I only wish cable/local channels show more F1 races, World Rally Races, and MotoGP races. Those are a lot more exciting to watch than NASCAR racers going around an oval track for a 300-500 laps. I do know Speedvision shows racing 24/7, but unforunately its a premium cable channel that I don't get.
Another big F1 fan around here is F1Pilot.
