    Can't go wrong with subscribing to IMSA. They don't stream live on YouTube but they usually have full races uploaded within days of them being broadcast on TV.

    You also want to pay attention to Radio Le Mans (http://www.radiolemans.co/), they're IMSA Radio and TV, they do NLS, ELMS etc.

    I am from the UK. Due to very overwhelming work shifts lately I haven't been able to watch the IMSA WSCC nearly as much as I wanted to. But I did find windows to watch it I always watched, albeit little snippets, on the YouTube channel.

    But now I do not work for my old workplace. So the grueling shift hours are no more. I am now able to watch more of it. But even now will still stick to the YouTube Channel. The quality is really very good good and you do not miss a second.

    I'm watching the Dubai 24 hours stream on YouTube right now as of this post. It's the first time I can recall seeing this endurance live either on stream or TV. Let's just hope this race goes MUCH longer than last year's seven-something hours of racing.

    Sad news coming from GT World Challenge this afternoon, championship points will be awarded to teams who perform best at PR events for the series' new title sponsor:



    I feel sorry for the teams who work hard and invest a lot of money into preparing their cars/driver line ups who could lose a championship based on this.

    If it counts towards the championship, it's no longer 'just' a PR event? The teams will need to consider the sim racing component as an important part of their preparation. :)

    Maybe, more likely it will devalue the teams championship (the more points awarded the more it will do so), fortunately the drivers championship is unaffected. I think SRO know that if they add gimmicks to that competition the teams/wealthy am's will look elsewhere. There are plenty of other series' to race GT3 cars around Europe, including DTM.

    It looks like this news is been seen as a positive by sim fans a negative by motorsport fans, since it's a motorsport series most fans are not going to be too pleased.

    This would typically go in the Production Car racing thread. ;)

    GT3 is the top class so it really could go in either.

    I know, but the video posted is from the new series SRO launched with features both classes. Usually we use the top class to determine what thread to put it in.

    Didn't know they were mixing them now. Saw GT4 on the thumbnail and when I clicked on the video it was showing a GT4 car.

    I didn't finish watching it, Sonoma is such a bland track to watch with absolutely no scenery at all.

    However, I was surprised to see the old R8 LMS still going along with those Huracans...

    I wonder if this is why KTM aren't in the GT4 European Series.
