First practice for the 2014 season starts in about 3 hours.

First race is Melbourne and I can sit down Sunday afternoon and watch the whole thing on TV between services.

I do enjoy my formula 1, and timing here is generally good. I think there is only 1 race that clashes with church, so I miss that one but get the rest.

I love F1 - I have it set to be recorded and then I watch it in the afternoon.

Living where I do the time works well so that most races are Sunday evening after church.
Once church is finished I can go home and relax in front of the tv and watch my race.
Then Monday I can get on with prep for next service.

In fact F1 and Olympics are the only reason we have a tv aerial - otherwise it is only dvd's or a certain online tv that has no commercials.

Yeah you're right - I forgot about that. Cricket on occasion too, but only test matches.

I'm not sure if they even show F-I on TV where I live. 

 

Occasionally, I'll see a rugby game on that I'll watch even though I don't understand the sport.

I would love to watch rugby but it is not free to air here.

I don't mind fishing........

But cricket is a bit like baseball but it is interesting and it takes skill and talent. ;)

I became all too familiar with F8 when our old computer started having troubles...

 

Yeah, F5's okay I guess, but F12...now we're talkin'!!!

I don't understand Formula One.  I was brought up to believe that a race car only turns left.  Seems like Formula One drivers are kinda showoffy, what with all those fancy right turns and all. :thumbdown:

 

God bless,

It's called skill, Larry. ;)
Sometimes it's called talent.

I would explain it, but seeing as you're American you wouldn't understand it. ;)

:lol:

(I am joking by the way ;) )

Never the the other party to a conversation know you are joking.  If they think you are serious it can make for a more lively exchange.  :knuppel: :verymad: :boxing:

Well, the young Aussie driver came second, then it was discovered his team did something wrong and he has been disqualified. :(

But first race of the season was good to watch.

When IndyCar drivers try their hand at NASCAR they fail miserably. That's because in NASCAR they drive side by side, sometimes four deep, and bumper to bumper at speeds averaging 190 mph. I don't believe IndyCar or F-1 allow this. You may say what you want about "only left turns" (which is not true there are road track races in NASCAR) but driving in those conditions requires a lot of skill.

How big is the V8 Supercars racing now in Australia?  Is it as popular as Formula 1? I use to enjoy driving them on IRacing.com.

 

God bless,

V8 supercars is the premier formula in Australia.
Personally I can't be bothered with it any more.
It used to be interesting and exciting, but nowdays I think it is just a bit boring.
It used to be directly based on production cars, but now it is more like nascar in respect to the cars - the only thing they have in common with the production cars is the badge. :(

And there are no rule limits to number of cars wide in formula one - it is limited to what fits.

I actually like nascar racing and I know it takes more skill than it appears.

But F1 is the top racing formula in the world - it is the pinnacle of motorsport.
