  1. This is a great reference to have – does anyone know of a combined series race calendar/schedule available anywhere? That would be incredibly helpful as a viewer

  2. I doubt British GT Championship highlights will be shown on Channel 4 this year.
    They weren’t last year and the info on the website looks like it’s from 2018.

    As far as I’m aware the only motorsport Channel 4 showed in 2019 was F1 and W Series.

    2018 (and earlier) they used to show a lot in the early hours of Saturday and Sunday mornings (British Rally Championship, Caterham Racing, Voltwagen Racing Cup etc) but they didn’t last year. Not sure if that’s because they started to show W Series?

    1. Last year British GT highlights were on Eurosport, with British F3 highlights on ITV4 as in previous years. Highlights of the support races weren’t televised last year so suspect they won’t be this year.

  3. Hi there are lines through the wtcr and the world suoerbikes tv info does this mean they are no longer on eurosport thanks
