Can't seem to find racing on DirectTV other than NASCAR, F1, and motorcycles. I'm able to catch DTM races after they're long over. Does anyone know of any touring or GT class car racing that you can catch online live? It's just frustrating wanting to see these races and I still haven't found a reliable source for them in the US.

Did you try MAV TV? I see all kinds of different racing there with the occasional fights/boxing.

I get it on Channel 214 in my area of NC.

Oh, awesome! I think that channel is relatively new on DirectTV. Never saw it before. Glad you pointed it out, PDD!

I was looking into WRC for the season that starts later this month. There is the WRC live website but it looks as that is geared more to a European audience given the currency for subscriptions is Euros. OTOH I've seen the apparently free Red Bull tv channel and website will be showing the Monte Carlo race in a few weekends. Are these the two viewing options in the states?

Here's the link for coverage of the 24 Hrs of Daytona on 1/24 -27 (including qualifying and other events, hence the schedule is longer than 24 hours.)
https://sportscarchampionship.imsa.c...aming-schedule

Fox Sports lost the contract for this year, NBC outbid them. Fox did a good job, with good announcers, let's see how NBC treats it.

This race signals the end of the winter and a new racing season, so I'm always excited about it.

Just noticed that link includes the entire season.

I've watched DTM, British "Touring" (I forget what the series is actually called), Australian Supercars and some of the lower Formula races on MAVTV and a few other channels and the coverage is HORRIBLE. They cut the races to show a few "highlights" (read as: crashes, contact) instead of actual laps and throw in a bunch of interviews and commentary. Maybe it is what their audience wants, who knows.
