Thanks, it sure is a long season, As a swede it will be a fun season to follow, especially felix who is extremely talented, and seems to be fast in just about everything he drives.

Fernado Alonso to contest 6 rounds, not just the Indy 500!

No, I think that's saying he will do round 6 only.

Booked my tickets for St Pete last night. Couple of days there, bit of beach time then over to Sebring for the WEC / IMSA double-header. Well excited!

First open test underway at COTA ( video and laptimes here http://racecontrol.indycar.com/ )

Top times currently around the 1m50s mark - early days yet but well off the 1m37s record from last year's F1 race

I can't help but think Wickens racing is somewhat hopeful but I see he has an entry

I hope he manages it, though I do doubt he'll race this year

I was just going to subscribe to BT Sport to get this! scratchchin Presume the Moto GP is still on though?

I was reasonably happy to pay for BT Sport as I like football & it has premier league plus all the Euro games, Indycar, WRC & Moto GP. It used to have DTM as well, but now with no Indycar I can't justify the expense for the odd football, Moto GP and WRC now and then. Hope someone in the UK picks up the rights.

I cancelled my BT TV contract yesterday. Indycar was about the only thing I wanted to watch. Really disappointing as I was starting to get into it.

Yeah im torn on whether to cancel mine as I love all the Champions League / Europa league (Arsenal fan, for my sins).

Heard a rumour Indycar is going to be on the Sky F1 channel if a deal can be done. But this is a rumour from an unreliable source.
