Motorsports on the web

With the Speed channel already gone for most Canadians, the internet is the main option to see most motorsports beyond the F1, IndyCar, and Nascar events carried by TSN and Sportsnet. Even then, indycar.com had already started freely streaming IndyCar practice sessions this year.

Less than an hour from now as I type this, the United SportsCar Championship race from Circuit of The Americas in Austin TX will be starting (at 12:30 pm eastern time) on imsa.com. Already seen yesterday were qualifying and the Continental Tire Series race.
Tonight starting at 6pm e.t. is the FIA World Endurance Championship race also from CoTA, on fiawec.com, although this year they started requiring a paid subscription. They also showed qualifying yesterday.
(Edit: The WEC race is being shown on Speed, despite not being in the TV listings I've seen. It's sort of live -- it seems to be oddly delayed by a few minutes -- and has the Fox Sports commentators instead of the ones on the webcast.)

Tomorrow starting at 5:45 am e.t. will be the Blancpain Endurance Series 1000km race from Nürburgring, hopefully available on nismo.tv as advertised. The Blancpain Sprint Series races have been available live on blancpain-gt-series.com.
The European Le Mans Series has one race remaining this year, Sunday Oct. 19 from Estoril Portugal, on europeanlemansseries.com.

The SCCA World Challenge series has ended for 2014. Their races were available live on world-challengetv.com.

As you can see, I'm mostly interested in sports car racing. Maybe others could post about availability of more motorsports on the web, particularly the type of things that used to be seen on Speedvision/Speed.

Formula E was available on YouTube this week for free - hoping for similar on future races. Search for "Formula E Beijing" on YouTube. As discussed in the Formula E thread. It's on Speed and RDS in Canada.

WRC's site has short snippets available without subscribing. You can get more if you subscribe, but not cheap (5 Euros a month I believe). I haven't found a legal free source on the web.

MotoGP is available on their site if you pay - I believe it's around $100 Euros for the season and they also have an option for the rest of the season. No legal free sites. It may be on beIN, but I haven't found a race yet...

SuperBike is available on BeIN ($15/mo), but delayed a week or more. It's available on the SuperBike site, but not cheap. No other legal source that I know.

Just a reminder that we don't discuss illegal downloads on this forum.

Unfortunately it seems DTM live streaming is geo-restricted for Canada.
http://www.dtm.com/en/livestream/index.html

I know it's not shown live on Speed as the DTM website says, although it may be same day delayed on CBS Sports channel.

There is a "This week's TV listings" chart on the racingnorth.ca site that lists some available live streams in addition to the racing on TV channels in Canada.
There has already been some World Challenge series races from Texas today (Saturday March 7), with more on Sunday.

The 24hseries.com site should have its 12 hour race from Mugello Italy next weekend, apparently split into a 4 hour segment on Friday March 13, followed by 8 more hours on Saturday March 14.

The 12 Hours of Sebring will run on Saturday March 21. We might have to wait to find out if imsa.com will have a live stream available for Canadians, or if Rogers picking up the Fox Sports Racing channel will cause it to be blocked until the archived broadcast is made available there a day later.

FIA European Formula 3 race from Silverstone on now as I type this.
In the race is Canadian driver Lance Stroll, son of Lawrence Stroll who owns the Mont-Tremblant track.
http://www.fiaf3europe.com/en/livestream/index.html

Edit: He finished fourth, after finishing sixth in the earlier race.
Each weekend apparently has three separate races. The third from Silverstone is on Sunday morning, 4:15 a.m. EDT.

The European Le Mans Series race at Silverstone is about to start as I am typing this, scheduled for 9:30 a.m. EDT (Saturday, April 11). It is a 4 hour race.
