  1. At least with it being a C4 highlights race there’s no need to get up extremely early on Saturday and Sunday lol

  2. Why did Formula E get moved to Channel 5? I thought that ITV4 did a good job of it.

    1. @ultimateuzair ITV didn’t want it. The ratings for the second season fell compared to the first.

      I suspect the organisers are keen to keep it on free-to-air but it looks like Channel 5 aren’t putting any money into it: they’re just taking the world feed.

      At least we will be able to get HD coverage of it on Freeview now though.

      1. And a decent on demand service.

  3. Despite promising in the 6 September press release it appears there will be no Formula E qualifying on Channel 5’s sister channel Spike, at least for this round. Such a disappointing start to the coverage but the continuously looped multi channel Teleshopping must take priority. Insanity (the workout of course)!

  4. I can’t wait!

    Aye homie, with your site’s global audience, would it be possible to add a dynamic clock that could give you a local time once the user selected from a pull down?

    Like say, it’s default at GMT but if i go change it to GMT -5 (my local time) it’d give me the session’s start and end times. then it could display the rest of the information as usual for the GB crowd.
