Hopefully Alonso's move to WEC means there's a bit extra interest in endurance sportscar racing here. Anybody else tuning in? Race starts 11am GMT.

No but I will definitely take an interest in Indycars when he races there, to that extent I'm going to watch the Indycar race tonight.

I would have watched it, but I don't have access to Velocity and their agreement with WEC means I can't use the official streaming app. After wasting several hours hunting for a way to legally watch the race, I came up with the answer that apparently the MotorTrend app is the way to do it, downloaded the app... and discovered that the 6 Hours of Silverstone wasn't listed.

So I didn't watch it. But I would have if it had been at all practical. x(

Well now, that’s interesting. It doesn’t make much sense for them to sail so close to wind rules wise when they really have no competition.

Watching it by legal means can be tough. But the dodgy stream I watched was on youtube!
