I obsessively watch Sky Sports F1 broadcasts of Qualifying and Race day for Formula 1, since the hybrid era began in 2014. That is the only sport I follow. And only now that the kids are off in college. Nearly 20 years ago, I followed CART in the 98 and 99 season. Both of these are interests as a spin-off of computer games I enjoy.

Another F1 nut here! Have been since the late '80 when I used work for Honda at their manufacturing plant in the U.K. as an AS/400 programmer. That's when Honda was winning races and championships, not like now.....oh dear. I remember when Nigel Mansel visited the plant with his Williams car and did donuts at the end of the test track - I was hooked, the Jananese managers were none too impressed!
How do you get the Sky Sports coverage over here? I watch it on Channel 4 (UK) via a Smart DNS service as the NBC Sports coverage is awful!
NBC coverage is aweful. Or at least the 3 or 4 times I've tried to watch a live race during US hours.
I do have high hopes for Honda to turn it around for McLaren... Really enjoyed JB, but miss him this year. It'll be a treat to have him back for Monaco while Alonso has his dalliance with left turns. Alonso managed to qualify today in a points earning way... But I fear it won't quite turn into points tomorrow. I'd love to be wrong.
This year is turning out to be exciting!!!

When not doing TI stuff I'm collecting/fixing/restoring arcade games and pinball machines, going around and getting other classic systems for the collections (recently colecovision, coco's and another apple iie) and trying to find time to hike/camp/explore the Oregon wilderness
