Still nothing on this - usually events like Dakar and Le Mans and Daytona 500 and Monaco are pushed hugely.

Is this a big hint there is no coverage on Eurosport / they are not bidding for the rights?

Eurosport has the rights to show the 2020 WEC season, I can't believe that Le Mans isn't included.

Finally got my ACO access sorted and requested members pack and viewing vice lounge access.

I'm logging in with Membres ACO app.
The videos weem to be Vimeo.

Is the main race stream likley to be the same? I can't see any Chomecast link. Anybody in a similar situation using Cast?

The Lidl Argus is OK.
The Sainsbury's St Cervois is really rather unpleasent.
Not tried Aldi's Brasserie yet.

The Aldi Brasserie is AOK. Similar to ordinary Kronenburg.

That sounds like the correct level of blandness for Le Mans beers smile

Was your tasting done with cold ones, or at the correct ~20C temperature, fresh out a bucked of water that had one bag of ice in it 3 days before?

Confirmation of the full schedule for Radio Le Mans on Thursday: (UK Times)



I saw on Facebook, so it must be true, that there is no video coverage of the morning Free Practice session.

Although there might be some Twitch feeds or similar.

Is Qualifying being screened? We have Eurosport Player.

Cottage now booked in the Midlands of all places, perfect for what we need

Hopefully so. The Eurosport schedule on their website runs a week in advance and the Radio Times goes 12 days ahead so we should know something early next week, end of the week at the latest.

Having made promises of super duper extra coverage to make up for not being allowed to attend we're now getting less than previous years then with no screening of the first practice session?
Poor show

Of course - they're from BonneBouffe

I usually order 2 - to reduce the impact of the P&P and then stick one pack in the freezer.

The photo doesn't do them justice - they seem to have changed their photo recently to a worse one in my opinion

Monday 21st Eurosport 23:00:00 00:30:00
Monday 21st Eurosport 2 00:30:00 02:00:00

German Eurosport 2 is not FTA so might be a bit of a pain




UK Eurosport only goes up to 05:00 on Sat 19th atm so I guess that schedule will be completely viewable by Wed.
