There's no shortage of pubs to watch F1 in Luxembourg center Jp, I think I watched it in the blackstuff some years ago.

- The Black Stuff, www.blackstuff.lu
- The White Rose, off the Av. de la Liberte, tel. 691 52 32 07
- Brittania Pub, www.britanniapub.lu

You might want to check beforehand because with qualy late afternoon it might clash with the Premier League football, anyway in every hotel you'll have BRT/Canvas and RTBF/La Deux anyway (same in Gent).

Will try to get you a proper address to watch it in Utrecht later.


Wonderful.. :up:
Thanks for taking the time JPW.

:eek: I'm shocked(!), just shocked that there is someplace in this world where you didn't know where to watch F1, Jon.

Are you really human, after all?  ;)

Utrecht then, difficult one though but if you're in Tivoli they'll surely have cable TV somewhere in a quiet room where you can watch the race. In The Netherlands you can watch it on RTL7 (annoying ads though) and most probably the BBC will be available too.

If there's no TV in Tivoli or you fancy a beer with your racing then this would be your best bet:

Mick O'Connells
Jansdam 3
Utrecht
www.mickoconnells.nl

Irish pub in walking distance from Tivoli Oudegracht (just walk towards the Dom-tower) and at 2pm on a Sunday they won't mind to put on the race for you at all. (BTW they do the full English/Irish breakfast thingy there so eggs, bacon, chips, sausages you name it available).

Good luck and enjoy the tour. :wave:

Race day, we are in Ghent BE. is RTBF or LaDeaux still FTA?

For Abu Dhabi
Quals i'm at some crappy festival in Lubeck DE with no tv signals. (RTL)

We just booked a summer holiday in Tunisia, but it then dawned on me that we're going on a grand prix weekend (Hungary) :eek: Does anyone know of anywhere in Hammamet, Tunisia that may be showing the grand prix??

Ohhh...Love Tunisia
As for the chances of F1 on the telly you MUST contact your hotel as it's very hodge-podge as far as who gets what channel there.
I do know that in Hammamet the RUI hotel has a sports bar
Failing that...There is a place in town called the British Bar...inhabited by all the people one would never want to meet

Good luck

I was in Paris at the time of the British GP this year, and my hotel internet and television wasn't working.

However, I remembered from my city tour a couple of days earlier seeing something like, "Grand Prix d'Angleterre - Vivez En Direct," on the L'Atelier Renault dealership on the Champs-Élysées. So, sure enough, I wandered in about half an hour before the race, and they had an area cordoned off and they gave us some inflatable pillows to sit on the ground, amongst some of the Renault displays.

There were about 30 or 40 people there by the end of the race. Of course the commentary was in French, which didn't make it easy. I hadn't realised that the team radio and TV graphics are still in English, so the commentators had to translate it after the radio came through. Unfortunately I missed Webber's famous number 2 line, as I think they talked over it.

It was a bit awkward when Kubica pulled into the pits with a mechanical failure as well, not a great advertisement! Petrov had a bad race as well, I think he had a puncture and some other problems. Also, they realised after a while that Opel were advertising in the ad breaks, so started switching off the feed in the breaks!


I don't know if Renault will keep doing it considering they no longer have a proper team, but it was definitely a unique place to watch a race!

For Germany I can give you advise to look out for a Sport bar or Gaststätte with a SKY logo outside. There is probably one within one km distance in every city you visit. SKY used to be branded as "Premiere". That brand was in yellow and orange like the oil flag and the signs are lighted at night. I would ask the locals for a Gaststätte with SKY or Premiere. At least the men will be able to tell you.

Sky Deutschland also has a bar locating service on their web site. All you have to input is the German mail code or PLZ of the area you are staying.

Tunesia is lovely. I will be travelling to Amsterdam soon. Does anyone have any experience with this site? Studio apartments Amsterdam. I wonder whether those flats there will have a TV with a good sports channel. But I think it should be ok in Amsterdam. In Tunesia (I've been there with my husband last year), I know the appartment didn't have a sport channel, just some local channels and CNN. That was the only international / English one there.

Hello honey :D
So your first post.
How nice it of you to put it here!!!

I know of 2 places that show F1 (as long as it is within the hours of opening)

Joe's bar
http://joesbar.no/

and a place called Champs across from the Spectrum (can't find a website)

Anywhere that has ViaSat will be able to receive it.

Hi, thanks for the reply, I wasn't expecting much luck - it's a bit of an F1 desert here. I'll give those a try when the timings allow!

In the US:

Chicago -- The Player's Club: 2500 North Ashland.

5 minute walk from Fullerton Redline stop. Airs F1 qualy and race. Races are aired on Sunday at 10 am for brunch or live if the bar is open. Call ahead. Club is owned by local midwest racer/ducati rider. Motorsports themed club with posters, flags, ducati and kart on display. Usually a pretty large, raucous crowd for races.

Also, I'm 90% sure that Chicago Indoor Racing (indoor karting track; 2 locations--one in addison, one sort of near o'hare in buffalo grove) airs F1 race replays.

Boston -- Cafe Paradiso: 255 Hanover Street

Airs F1 races. In Boston's North End--expect a large tifosi crowd!



Note that, unlike the other mentioned venues for Chicago and Boston, these places are actually IN Chicago and Boston, respectively, and relatively easy to get to.

Hi, I'm moving to Haarlem next week. I've read I can watch F1 in RTL7, but I dont know if I will have a tv for the Australia GP.

Any chance to watch it at some Haarlem or Amsterdam pub? The race being at 8AM doesn't help too much :(

Live online streaming for all sessions of all Grands Prix. Free and 100% legal since it's from the official Australian broadcaster, though you might need an Australian IP to view it.

Hm, yes I've heard of him, but I doubt he's much worse than the rest of them.

Channel 6, or La Sexta then, is this commonly available in Spain? The reason I ask is that my woman is currently on vacation in Spain and I promised to find out which channel airs the Malaysian GP. Also, the race is 10.00 (AM) o'clock, Spanish time, right?

Well, I'm not exactly sure (I say, who have spent a lot of time in Spain, although on the mainland) but I think it's somewhere on the Canary Islands, La Palma I think.

She'll likely need a place with a satellite dish then.
Also..Catalonian's get their own broadcast of the race on TV3.

Hopefully the hotel provides that service. If they will, it would be on Channel 6 (La Sexta) then?

You can watch it on SF Zwei (Swiss broadcast) and most hotels carry the Austrian broadcast from ORF Eins (both those are German commentary) or on TSR 1 (French commentary)
As to viewing venues ... there's an English Pub (Duke?) reasonably close to the train station on Rue de Monthoux that has large screen TVs tuned to various sports and an Irish pub called Spring Bros closer to the center of town on Grand Rue that also carries sports.

I've left this a bit late, but... Does anyone please know any venues showing live F1 in Cape Town, South Africa? Or in the nearby tourist-type towns (e.g. Constantia, or on the Cape).

I'm hoping our B&B will have the local SuperSport channel, but I'm looking for alternatives where there may be a bit of atmosphere this weekend.

Hi there,

in 10 days I will move to Taipei and stay there for one year. I've read in an archived thread that a few years ago StarSports was the Taiwanese F1 broadcaster.

Is this still the case today? Are the races live? I have a DVB-T stick which captures digital terrestrial TV, am I able to capture that channel via DVB-T?

If not, are there any sports bars or pubs where F1 fans meet?

Thanks a lot in advance!
a.

PS: This does most likely not apply to the races very early in the morning, or late in the night. And if there is a major football(the real football, with the foot and the ball, not US-style)match that will most likely get priority.

Nice find! They do F1, and it's even on what's going to be my MRT line :up:

Remember if you guess the first 3 in order, we pay your bill!
If you guess the first 5 in order, we give you NT$5000!*


I hope they have lots of screens, though, because the Turkish GP is shown from 8pm, and at 9pm there's premier league...

Thanks for your help (if anybody knows how to get it on TV, it would still be much appreciated - just in case I don't get the first 3 right regularly!)

Hi everyone, have just landed in Frankfurt for a couple of months in Europe. Great to be back in Germany but obviously the most pressing task is to find where the F1 fans congregate here. Any tips for Frankfurt?

JP I am starting to think you are a savant about these things. Watched it at Sams, loved it, and washed away my jetlag with the warm sun and 3.90€ long islands. Fantastisch.
