---------------------------------------------------------------------- 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.
Please note that this listing is now being submitted to the moderated newsgroup "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 auto racing fans as possible, I will also continue to cross-post to the groups "rec.autos.sport" and "rec.autos.sport.nascar" for an indefinite period of time. (This again assumes the moderators of r.a.s.i do not object to my doing so.) IMO the group "rec.motorcycles.racing" should get a separate post as a cross-post with the autos groups would not appear to be appropriate.
Thanks to EMI Communications, TVE listings are available from http://www.emi.com/tve.html where they will be archived for an indeterminate 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.

 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.
