2013 24 Heures du Mans

Post  Avanti 63r1025 on Sat Jun 15, 2013 6:26 pm

I've just been enlightened to Speed Channel's coverage of this great event so I advanced my television listings and found these gems on Speed Channel:

Times Eastern
8:30a2pLe Mans
2p4pNASCAR
4p7pLe Mans
7p7:30pSpeed Center
7:30p6aLe Mans
6a9:30aLe Mans
Times Pacific
5:30a11aLe Mans
11a1pNASCAR
1p4pLe Mans
4p4:30pSpeed Center
4:30p3aLe Mans
3a6:30aLe Mans
Not counting the pre and post 30 minute sections, that's 21.5 hours out of a possible 24 hours broadcast on television. I understand local television coverage may vary so speedtv.com will augment the coverage.

I think I am the only one here that doesnt like Leo on Drive.  I wont watch the 25 of 24 cause he would ruin the race for me haha.  Although I broke down last night and watched his 24 preview Shakedown and he didnt completely annoy me cause he finally had an episode where he stopped trying to be funny and did his job - To talk racing.   He is a wealth of racing input but he is the worst kind of funny person.  Maybe he is finally getting it.  

The 24 coverage is plenty good for me anyway and Im not smart enough to double task the race coverage and the 25 of 24.  Ill be lost and confused.

wwuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut!  Leo's TOTALLY my favorite!  He has the same lame ass cynicism towards auto racing that I would.   2nd would be JF Musial... cuuuz I got to meet him during the 24hrs of Daytona.  Way cool dude.  I told em "You guys are doing very righteous stuff for the sport." he never heard "righteous" in quite a while Razz

Yeah, it's a bummer.  Auto racing will forever and always be dangerous.  RIP. Mr. Simonsen
