Just a quickie to say that we were lucky enough to be informed (by my dad) that it's possible to watch live coverage of this year's A1GP autosport world championship online... so we were able to follow two or three hours of a thoroughly wet, windy and miserable day at Zandvoort in near-TV quality!
(My dad and brother-in-law-although-not-actually-married were in the corporate hospitality there, due to BILANAM's mother owning a team-sponsoring company... the lucky show-offs!
Anyway, I rushed back from scouting out next week's Toulouse Hash just in time to watch it - and I'm bloody glad I did, since:
- the racing was a lot more exciting than F1
- having national teams makes it quite fun
- Malaysia bloody won!!! (first in the sprint race, second in the long race)
So congratulations to Faruz Fauzy.
You can watch the next race (Chengdu, China, 9th of November) live by going to the site.
We'll certainly be following the rest of the season...
