PostSubject: Total 24 Hours of Spa Round 4   Mon Jul 20, 2009 11:02 pm




Quote :
Spa-Francorchamps ! The circuit has been a major part of the FIA GT Championship since 2001, when the legendary 24-hour race first became an integral part of the Championship. Frequently playing a determining factor in the future Champions, a good performance around the 7-km circuit rapidly became essential for the FIA GT frontrunners.

However, that race in 2001 was not the first time the Championship visited Spa – the fledgling series raced there in 1997, in the era of the McLaren F1 GTR, Mercedes CK GTR and Porsche 911 GT1. A magnificent race despite the difficult weather conditions – a story which has been repeated over the years...

I am bit dissapointed about the TV coverage for this race, for more specifically the lack of it. I understand that the Silverstone classic is a good event, but Motors TV could alternate between this race and the classic. Especially given how Motors TV is supposed to be showing FIA GT live.

They are not showing it live. Only highlights it said on dailysportscar.com Motors TV to FIA GT live but not spa.

I guess Motors TV have a contract with the organisers of Silverstone classic, but its a shame all the same. Almost like putting all eggs in one basket. Sad

The race should have more coverage. scratch midnight/1am they turn of the cameras and they don't come back on till 6/7am i think.

I think they could esaily have on board cameras going over the 24hours and have TV picture during the race.

Last year when pratice was on. They only shoulded on board cameras due to no really covered Quali live.

to be honest the spa 24 is great, but it's the last year of gt1 and there arn't many of them, the entry list is right now

i'll take the silverstone classic, it was the best racing i saw all year last year (perhaps excluding the motogp race at laguna)

To be honest I don't find classic cars awfully interesting, especially to exclusively see them and nothing else. I like to look to the future, not backwards. Wink
