As you know and have seen by my posts around here that I enjoy cars and getting to test them out and review them. I have traveled to car events, car shows, and lots of car related things but one thing I haven’t done is go to a car race. I have been driven on the Texas Motor Speedway, but never had the full on experience of either driving a race car or watching a race first hand. One of these days I will check that off my bucket list. Until then, I will be tuning in to the IMSA WeatherTech Championship Series racing on tv.
IMSA Racing is all about high-tech, race cars from the world’s top auto manufacturers, exciting racetracks, and historic events like the historic 12 Hours of Sebring and premier drivers. Cheer on as some of your favorite big name cars including Acura, Audi, Aston Martin, BMW, Cadillac, Ferrari, Ford, Lamborghini, Lexus, Mercedes, Nissan, and Porsche, go head to head! IMSA racing is a unique and exciting organization with all the best parts of F1, NASCAR and Indy Car racing all in one place!
To tune into the 65th Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida on Saturday, March 18, 2017! the whole weekend will be filled with coverage from March 15-18th, plus more in the future! Fans can tune-in to the action on FS1 from 12:30pm-11pm, with the entire race broadcast on FOX Sports Go from 10:30am- 11:00pm EST. Live in-car cameras, IMSA Radio and timing & scoring available worldwide on IMSA.com and the IMSA App. International broadcast on IMSA.tv and the IMSA App outside of the United States.
Now I don’t fully understand all the ins and outs of racing, but there is just something about seeing these cars go fast, their sleek lines, watching the pit crews flawlessly and in a matter of seconds change tires and refuel. It is like a highly synchronized dance that if just one part falters or is off timing then a whole race could be lost.
I hope you will tune in this weekend as well as later to follow the whole race series. And one day I hope to be out at one of these races taking the action in first hand and smelling the burning rubber and hear the roar of the engines. Gentleman, Start Your Engines( or TV’s if you aren’t driving).
