Default A1 GP on OLN

I just happend to be scrolling through the channels late last night and saw the A1 GP on OLN. I missed the first 3/4 of it but what I saw was pretty good. They use an Euro spec aspect ratio so the images looked too tall but other then that the coverage was above par.
I looked on OLN's website and couldn't find any program guide for it. Keep your eyes open if you're interested.

I saw that too. It was decent motorsport. I might have to start following it.

Thank You! That was driving me crazy and I couldn't figure out why.

I enjoyed the racing and it was great to hear John Watson doing commentary again. He and Derek Bell were always my favorite F1 commentators.

I found that by accident last night too. OLN is showing coverage over the next two weekends:

12/10/2005 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Round 3- Circuito Estoril, Portugal
12/11/2005 11:00 pm - 12:00 am Round 4- Eastern Creek, Sydney Australia
12/12/2005 12:00 am - 1:00 am Round 4- Eastern Creek, Sydney Australia

12/17/2005 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm Round 5-Sepang International Circuit
12/18/2005 11:00 pm - 12:00 am Round 6- Dubai Autodrome, UAE
12/19/2005 12:00 am - 1:00 am Round 6- Dubai Autodrome, UAE

Big thumbs up and thanks to OLN for offering this coverage, as well as Rally America and Dakar. They are becoming a better motorsports channel than Speed.

Thanks for the heads up. Probably never would have found this otherwise.

Don't forget they're coming to Laguna Seca in March. (Though that's a wee bit of a haul from New England. )

And team entries from countries with very little experience in world class racing: Indonesia, Pakistan, etc. Strange, but fun to watch. I'll be going to Laguna Seca to check them out.

Too bad it's not Road America (though in March...)

It was supposed to come to San Antonio for a street race when the 1st schedule was released.
It strange to watch becuase they rarely talk about the driver, only the country. Good concept but to hear "Canada passes Ireland into turn 1" makes you kind of go
