I thought I saw a similar poll a while ago on the BB, but I couldn't find it. This one includes GP3, anyway.

I'd love to watch more, but open-wheel coverage in the U.S. sucks. I'll probably watch the road course rounds of IndyCar since they broadcast them on their website. I don't have a subscription to SpeedTV, so I'll only catch the F1 races that FOX broadcasts, and a few when I visit my brother that has Speed. If I were able to, I'd probably watch GP2, GP3, F3 Euroseries, and maybe Superleague.

I'm really finding it difficult to be interested in open-wheel series these days. Below F1 they're all basically one-make formulae, and media interest is virtually zero.

I'll probably watch World of Outlaws and USAC though.

Why have you left F1 off your list?

Yeah, I'm sort of in the same boat. I keep trying to get into open wheel racing, but the US coverage is bad. Speed has the F1 races and I try to catch them if they are on at a reasonable hour, but some aren't. I wish they could somehow work out a deal to show a replay later in the day. I know Speed shows some of the other series as well but its hit or miss in that sometimes they show a race, some times they don't. And then there's IRL, heck, do they even have a TV deal anymore? ESPN just sort of half-assed their schedule last year and wouldn't promote anything.

Of course we're watching F1, not listed. There's too many others anyway IMO. So, I will note the traditional FRenault, FRenault world series, BMW world series, and GP2. FFord is not what is was in terms of ladder positioning and media coverage, but I'll probably take in snippets of news from that.

Oh, and Macau of course.

Err...I just assumed that if you are on this BB, you follow F1. I guess this is Autosport now, and not Atlas, but I still haven't come across any BB members asking who Lewis Hamilton is or when Red Bull started a team.

Well, F1 is the only series that I follow religiously, never misses a race, always watch qualy (free practice is a bit harder to follow, but I try) etcetera. I follow Indycar as well, but it is not the end of the world if I miss a race, and I don't get up in the middle of the night to watch as there is reruns anyway, with F1 I always watch it live no matter the time. Also watch GP2, but even less devoted than Indy, perhaps I should try to get into that more, as the racing is good and the cars are pretty fast... F2 and F3 I might catch the occasional race in if it happens to be on TV. Superleague (don't care for the footballish format at all, as I could not be less interested in it), A1 (there is to much nationalism in F1 already), and whatever else series the is I don't really care about at all.

Any open wheel class which has somehow interesting drivers drivers in it really.

I'm with you on this. I make an effort to watch or at least follow ALL single seater racing as well as touring cars and rallying (doesn't leave much time for a life as the missus will attest) and to do this I highly recommend FORIX to keep track of what's on when. (Not an ad is it as they are affiliated?!)
I used to help out at driver database and compile my own but have stopped all that and now have a partial life! :)

Fair enough, just seemed odd considering the opening question.

I'll try and watch as many as I can, but it depends on if they are being broadcast, and on what channel. The likes of A1GP did themselves no favours by only being on a pay channel in the UK.

IndyCar is my joint second favoured series along with MotoGP, sot that's a sure bet for me watching (but I'll skip the night races). I do watch GP2 whenever the telly is available in my house (I'm 18, and my little brother is not very keen on me watching while he's playing computer :p ) When I move next autumn, I definitely will watch all GP2 races. F3 Euroseries is another series close to my heart, and I'm a huge fan of Formula Three. I can't watch everything though, but most of the series written, I'll keep up with the results.

Probably F1, sorry if that seems silly! Silly question really and a silly lack of choices. None of the options looked appetising as well as depending on having a network supplier for TV coverage.

I hope to watch some sprintcar racing as that's pretty wild. The Indycar racing can be great or abysmal depending on the track. The Indy 500 is a classic event and the road course can provide some sterling racing. GP2 hasn't lit my fire and most of the others are 12000 miles away and receive little if any TV coverage.

Maybe I shouldn't have bothered.... :confused:

I'll watch F1, won't bother with IndyCar (it just does nothing for me anymore), and I'll follow the big F3 championships (can't watch them on TV).

Where is the "None" option?
Probably, I won't watch other OW races this year.

Makes it tricky for people to respond to the poll if they doubt they will be watching any other motorsport this year though. Terrestrial TV in the UK doesn't give you much choice either.
