My apologies for being late again. This time it really was my fault, sorry.

Now in its third year of weekly publication, TVE is a compilation of info. gleaned from TV listings, auto mags., newspapers, tea leaves, my favorite bartender, and the nice folks at TNN. A special thanks also to Curt Swinehart for providing me with info. on the many regional sports networks. PLEASE confirm dates and times with your local listings before setting your VCRs.
TVE will USUALLY be updated no later than every Friday morning and will be most accurate (or least inaccurate) for the following 7 days. If your favorite event is "tba'd", please don't panic unless it's in the 7 day window.
As mentioned previously, this listing is now being submitted to the new group rec.autos.sport.info. Assuming the moderators approve, this list will be available in the r.a.s.i group from now on. In an attempt to get the word to as many r.a.s readers as possible, I will continue to cross-post to r.a.s for a short time. (This again assumes the moderators of r.a.s.i do not object to my doing so.)
If you are having trouble with this list arriving at your site in a timely fashion, please let me know via e-mail and I will also start mailing you a copy.
Comments, suggestions, additions, extra pit passes, etc. to: firstname.lastname@example.org

 CBC also carries all F1 and most IndyCar races (the Indy 500 & Long Beach will not be shown this year). The races are usually broadcast on a tape-delayed basis at 11:37PM ET on the evening following the race. I understand that it is not uncommon for CBC to delay the broadcast as much as an hour beyond the 11:37PM start, so please use extra caution if you plan to tape the race. If you have access to it, and your French isn't too rusty, you may also want to check out RDS which used to broadcast each F1 race live. (I don't know for sure if they still do). Thanks to Tak Ariga for info. on coverage in Canada.
