Hi everyone.

A quick question: I'm in Philadelphia PA until Friday evening and would like to see the free practise session from Melbourne. So does anyone know which channel would broadcast the sessions (live prefereably :)

Cheers,

there is another thread about SPEED coverage of F1 here, with detailed coverage times.
It's called "Oz GP on SPEED tv".

No, I don't think my hotel has it. Have to check some local bar.

Thanks

My wife will never forgive me for the time in the early 90’s, while vacationing in Florida, I took her to dinner at a place that also had an adjoining bar with a big screen TV. I had the meal served at a table in the bar and watched the whole Indy500. My wife was game enough to watch about half the race (or put up with…) before heading off for the beach. Occasionally, I’d hear someone at the bar say ‘can’t you change that channel to something else?’, and the bartender would say ‘no, that guy asked if he could watch the race…’. He must have been watching too, because I got to see the whole thing.
For the next vacation, I remembered to set the VCR so I wouldn’t miss any of it again (and by ‘it’ I mean that vacation sex that follows a romantic dinner)
