Hi troops, Sorry, but I really never got this issue finished (there just seems to be a lot less time available for stuff like this in the summer). Anyway, please use this with more caution than usual. Stay cool & keep the dirty side down. -...

---------------------------------------------------------------------- TV Events
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.)
Thanks to Bob Bownes, TVE listings are available from http://www.emi.com/tve where they will be archived for an indeterminite period of time.
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 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. RDS broadcasts every F1 race and most IndyCar races, and their F1 coverage usually also includes a 30 minute prerace show. RDS and TSN generally use the ESPN feed, while CBC generally uses the BBC feed. The exception to these rules is the Canadian Grand Prix. Only CBC and SRC have the rights to the Canadian GP. Thanks to Pierre Mailhot and Tak Ariga for info. on coverage in Canada.
