  • Motegi/Long Beach TV Schedule Posted...maybe

    Doing some poking around to see if this has been resolved and have found the following:

    Indycar.com lists race as on ESPN at noon Saturday April 19

    ESPNtv.com has Indycar racing Series scheduled at both 12:00 - 02:00 AM on ESPN2 & 3:00 - 5:00 PM on ESPN both on Saturday April 19. Both times different than the one listed on Indycar.com

    ESPNtv.com also has The Toyota Grand Prix at Long Beach listed at 5:00 - 7:30 PM on Sunday April 20 on ESPN2

    So, it seems that LB broadcast has been expanded from the original 1 hour tape delay and perhaps we may get Motegi as both a live and tape delayed broadcast. Or, it's still being worked out....

    Motegi should air LIVE anyway. It's only 9pm on the West Coast. Plus, is midnight really too late for you people in the east? It's Friday night!

      Oh and Long Beach was already scheduled for a 5:00 - 7:30 PM (ET) time slot. (Even before the merger)

        for the people whose kids get up at 7am no matter how late dad stayed up the night before (like me) .... yes, midnight is really really really late for a race to start.

        but i would make the sacrifice .... or watch the race then crash in my man cave and let the wife fend for herself with the offspring for a few hours.

            Yep, why not? I do it several times a year(including last night) for F1.

              From indycar.com "TV: Noon on ESPN," that would be EDT. They stream the race live on indycar.com. Personally, in a perfect world I would like to see them lead into the Long Beach with a re-air of Motegi, plus shots from the best racing from St. Pete, where both series street raced together for the first time.
              It's always been about the Indy 500!
              I realize I have the right to remain silent, but don't have the ability or enough common sense to do so.:rolleyes:

                If only Japan would join the "rest of the world" and observe DST, it would be on at 11 ET ... Right?
                No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

                  Hmm, Good point!

                  Anyway, I really do hope they air it LIVE this year. And they could just re-air it later on ESPN2 in the afternoon. Kind of like what SPEED dose with F1.

                    No, it wasn't.

                      Those Japanese are so backwards... they need to be sheeple and get with the program.
                      One driver's "fuel strategy" is another driver's "speed up or we will park you!"

                        Yeah, maybe when they get some technology and join the 21st century.

                          Agreed.

                          Market the tension into Indy.

                            I think we'd have to convince Hawaii to observe DST before Japan would care what we say.

                            (Actually I read recently that DST is a failure. Not only does it not save power, it actually costs the US 5% to run during DST thanks to heaters, A/C units, etc... DST only works in a world with light bulbs being the only power draw.

                              Well, you've convinced me. Maybe Japan and Arizona and Hawaii are on to something?
