Now I just gotta' remember the directions to VIR for the Grand-Am weekend............ :D 8-) :goodday:
Yes, not a bad weekend for motorsport.

Are you actually going to the Grand-Am event Matthew?
It's only a couple of hours drive from you isn't it?
For UK viewers, the Superbikes from Assen (and, presumably, support races) are on Eurosport 2 from 09:30-15:35 on Sunday.

DTM from Hockenheim is live on ESPN 12:45-14:45

And ITV4 will have the usual all-afternoon coverage of the BTCC and supports from Rockingham (minus Fabrizio Giovanardi! :disappointed: )
Brogan said:
Presumably he didn't get sponsorship for more races then G?

Not exactly - bizarrely, he lost his drive for being too successful.

This American company, Uniq, were paying for him. After Thruxton they were inundated with queries from potential customers in the UK and apparently aren't able to cope with that demand at this stage, so they've postponed the rest of their sponsorship until later in the season!

James Nash will take Gio's seat in what will, presumably, be an unbranded Vectra. >:(
A crazy situation.

I've also just noticed that DTM is only on ESPN this year so it looks like I won't be watching that series :(
