I’m pretty sure the race starts 16:10 uk time. 18:10 is the local time. Bit misleading that they are listed first, when you choose “tv Times” in the drop down menu.

I didn’t expect you to include local times as well. Is this going to be done on a regular basis from now on? @keithcollantine
3rd April 2018, 12:13
Doesn’t the race start at 16:10? @keithcollantine
3rd April 2018, 13:28
@jb784 Yes, I noticed that error as well.

And no news from the tv app, damm if they wanted to stress test the best way was to launch the service and fix whatever they needed between each gp

Can’t wait! I’ll be watching channel 4. I’ve got sky but unfortunately the coverage is terrible.
