Been driving the last few days, it's strange not to see our township out putting brine down on the roads if it's going to snow or not, I guess the people need the overtime. Driving Sunday. That what DVR's are for.

So....How do we watch it? Am I missing the obvious? Or is there zero broadcast information on that site?

. The LMP3 race just concluded. It was broadcast on IMSA TV by livestream. Sign up with them to receive alerts of broadcasts. Its free. Download their app on your smartphone or PC.. get TV broadcast info in thread below: “ZR1 will be featured in Sebring Midway this coming weekend”

I meant on TV. The box that glows in my living room and is bigger than the palm of my hand. I'm not a fan of streaming, quality is crap and buffering kills the mood of the moment. Is any of it going to be broadcast on TV?

Mentioned in details of upcoming race by Corvette racing. BTW... two big races this weekend. The WEC 1000 miles of Sebring will have the #63 C7.R car driven by Garcia,Magnussen and Rockenfeller beginning Fri afternoon 4 pm ET on Motor Trend TV followed by the 12 hrs of Sebring starting Sat 10:30 am on CNBC with the #3 Vette (drivers above) and #4 driven by Gavin, Milner and Fassler.. This may be our last chance to see front engine Corvettes representing GM racing at Sebring in these series. I just checked the Direct TV Listing here in AZ (3hrs behind ET). It shows the 1000 FIA WEC race starts tomorrow on 281 at 12:30 pm. Also F1...https://autoweek.com/article/formula...d-prix-weekend

Just an observation of lap time difference between Prototype P1 in WEC and IMSA’s fastest prototype class is about 5 seconds.. oh and many $millions in the cars costs. AWD hybrid/turboed in P1 WEC FIA vs RWD 5.5L Chevy pushrod in one of the faster IMSA prototype.(not pole)

- Similar time gap as between Indy car pole and F1 pole at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve some years ago. Which was also about the gap between F1 pole and the last place qualifier. So in competition terms: a huuuuge difference.
