Should you happen to be in Cyprus, like I'm right now, in Kavos (an (in)famous British settlement in Greece) there are bars that show F1 live. Today, I enjoyed watching the Singapore race in Wembley.

 

Being a cloggy, I got very concerned for my wellbeing when Verstappen got ever so close to Hamilton due to those backmarkers, but honestly - no hooligans there at this time of the year.

Will be in Suzuka next weekend, but haven't ordered rooms yet.

 

Anybody have an idea what's the best place to stay in, Nagoya, Osaka or Kyoto?

 

From Kyoto and Osaka you have to travel thru Nagoya, but it's only 40 minutes with Shinkansen so not that bad. Osaka has an insane castle that I'd like to visit, on the other hand Kyoto is supposed to be something very special. I already have a rail pass, unlimited train travels, so moving around won't be an issue.

You're traveling like crazy this year. !

Thanks! Was already fully booked but I found a  hotel across the street with reasonable price and rooms available.

 

Kind of knew it was Kimis last season with Ferrari so trying to go to the races I can fit in my calendar. I'll probably go to one more race this year but haven't decided yet.

Jonpollak....and others of course also if you have good ideas

 

New year, new travels. Going to Shangai for the 1000th in a couple of weeks. Never been before. 

 

is there some place formula fans gather? I will land just an hour before qualifying so won't make it to the track and would like to find a place to watch it on TV and people to speculate with

Funny you should post this Module.
I’ll be at that very hotel I posted for you in Nagoya for the Shanghai race.

Sorry I can’t help with actual Shanghai info... never been.

I'll be spending a couple weeks in Orlando, FL and wondering if anyone knows where I'm going to be able to enjoy the Chinese GP over there. Any help?

Britain West, as it’s known, will be the easiest place to find coverage.
Try the NASCAR Bar and Grill if you are at Disney.
A pub I used to go to near there was called Last Lap but it closed down in 2015

Your problem is that both Qualy and Race are on live at 1:00am.
Fear not.. Wherever you are staying, hotel, friends house, AirB&B will have ESPN2 which broadcasts the SkyF1 feed with no commercials!!

Pub in Barcelona for the Canuck GP (that's Great Poutine for us)? Somewhere on the old Ramblas? Thoughts?

Those ones I mentioned do bang up business 24/7.
I’d be amazed if they were shut.

Kids were at Flaherty's Irish Pub in Barcelona for "The Great Canadian Penalty Bake-Off". Good crowd of Brits and Aussies. Projector TV (yuck) and many more screens showing football.

Joe Sensers sports bar is near your skating venue.
Don’t think they’ll be open at 8 am however... might have to catch one of the 3 replays on the various ESPN channels.

Any suggestions for Bruges? I'll be there next weekend and would consider watching the GP in a pub somewhere if possible (not sure if I want to just rush back to the hotel to watch in my room).

Hey Victor ...
Try Don Quichotte.
Elermarkt 14, 8000 Bruges

Small place but they have all the satellite channels anyone could want.

Cheers,
Jp

Try MK11

I’d call first as it’s a footy pub mostly.
