As many motorsport fans might be aware, this Sunday (22 June) there are two exciting motorsport events to savor: Formula1 GP (Magny Cours) as well as the motoGP races at Donington.

The event schedules are such that the two are going to overlap. Specifically, it seems that the 250cc race and French GP will start almost simultaneously :eek: and the motoGP race will start before the F1 race has finished (or is in closing stages).

To those regulars who follow both these form of motorsports, I would like to ask: what kind of strategy and tactics are you planning to employ so that you can enjoy both events?

Do you follow one race live while record the other for later viewing?

Two different TV screens? Or one on TV, the other on computer monitor?

PIP? :cat:

Or just watch the motoGP races, and switch channels to F1 every two minutes to take quick 'snapshots'? Vice-versa? :drunk:

This is a very serious issue; I would like to hear your thoughts. :D

Easy. Annoying to have them at the same time, but F1 has priority over MotoGP.

I have MotoGP starting 2 hours (1500) after the start of F1 (1300)?


Even if it's 1400 vs 1300, the F1 race will be pretty much fixed order after the one hour mark.

Out here in the USA we have both F1 and Indycars at the same time (1pmEDT) on free to air tv
I am commandeering both satellites on the tourbus along with a hand held tv for when we inevitably lose sat signal while on the way to Boston.

I'll download and watch 'em later because I'll be busy with college exams. If I weren't, Moto GP would get priority because the racing is much more exciting.


A few years ago, never would this happen, but Moto GP has really grown on me while F1 seems as a perpetual deja vu.

The ITV F1 broadcast runs from 12:00 to 15:00, although the broadcast will probably finish about 14:57 if no safety cars or rain intervene.

The MotoGP starts at 15:00. They don't overlap.

Fire Nakajima urgently, hire Toseland - he was only 3 seconds slower in Williams' simulator. It can not be worse. And so I will cope then.

Usually I only watch the 125cc and MotoGP race, I miss the 250cc, and today the schedule is perfect, 125cc before F1 and MotoGP after it ;)

I don´t enjoy a race unless I get totally "into" it. So watching the whole thing from beginneing to end without switching channels is a must for me. I will record the F1 race and watch MGP live, all the races, as I find the smaller classes just as interesting as the 800´s.

How can you get totally into the F1 race watching a recorded race, without the live timing?

Live timing is essential for me to get into a race.

The clear solution to this is to run both events at the same time on the same track.

The ACO has patented different classes on the same track, but motos would beat the cars all the time.

Off the start line, if nothing else.

They don't get that great a jump from a standing start. A MotoGP in lap time is about equal to a Formula 3 car at most circuits.

You fail.


As a matter of fact, there is no clash. Moto GP is on TV today while some other minor sporting events are too.

Jezus Ross. You´re smarter than that. MGP has two wheels, even if they do have a superiour PTW ratio. It´s how you´re connected to mother earth that determines your lap times, not the degree of difficulty. I´m a F1 adict, but you can´t beat MGP as a pure racing spectacle. Sorry, there is just no comparison IMO.

Unimportant? :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:
