    I don't think there are since most of the races are in the middle of the night or early morning and there aren't that many F1 fans here. If there was I wouldn't mind checking it out.

    NASCAR is getting a bigger audience, and I often see those races showing at bars and restaurants. Last year I started watching... I actually saw a road race with NASCAR cars, and that's the first time I had ever seen a race in full. Ever since then, and I find myself home on a Sunday I'll usually watch the oval-action.

    F1 is still an amazing sport that doesn't get enough credit, much like Rally. Too bad the cigarette manufacturers can't support teams anymore, they brought a lot of sponsorhip and media support to events.

    If you guys are up for early morning races live, I'd be more than happy to host at my place. 70" TV, multiple laptops for live timing, and excellent access to breakfast (crowfoot). Plus for the smokers, there's a heated garage.

    I watch every race live, and it's definately way more fun to have other F1 fans around during a race.

    Night races, I usually have people over for that. Not many takers for the morning ones haha.

    Coop and I are anxiously awaiting the '09 game to hit on 360. Can't say I'm thrilled that it's by Codemasters but I don't think that'll stop me from enjoying it anyway.

    I play it once in a while... it's pretty much the only PS3 game I play haha.

    I've never sucessfully had a good multiplayer race tho. I have horrible lag, prob. cuz most of the players are from europe.

    i've never tried multiplayer yet, mostly cause i lag to much in every other game i play online. i play on semi pro with all but abs off and finally got my first win at indy, i got 2 more wins later in china and somewhere else. i picked it up off ebay as it's very hard to find here but it's a awsome game and looks amazing. i wish they had it with the night race that happened in 08

    I would be interested to just be in the atmosphere of watching with other people and hearing commentary.

    Well seems like there's half decent interest, so if you're in, shoot me a PM with your email address, and I'll set up some sort of a mailing list so I can figure out food, drinks, snacks, etc.

    And yes, Ferrari fans are allowed. I need someone to pick on (or vice versa if Ferrari does better lol) during the race haha.

    I'm up in Arbour Lake if that makes any difference. buh_buh's hardcore, he comes over all the way from Lake Bonavista!

    I only do it to antagonize you when McLaren takes it up the chute, although at this point Honda doesn't even have a team.

    I'm coming from Sundance, a carpool might not be a bad idea.

    I'm fairly central (West Hillhurst), so a carpool would be good if you're going past this way.
