    To properly enjoy it, you should watch the free practices and the qualifying sessions. Also, if you have the time, try watching some of the classic races.

    FWIW, I never watch the race live. I've learned from experience that I'd rather watch it on my time, than battle through the internet lag. I just don't read this thread, or Facebook, or anything else until I've watched. :freaky

    I usually watch them on delay, since who the hell wants to be up that early when they are in Europe. That sad I like to watch the live because I like watching the timing and race together. Though for Qatar the video was way behind the timing so couldn't do it, without knowing the results a minute or two before.
    For Austin I will just stream the live timing from their site, no need to buy a pass or an app. Though it may be flash so if you have an iapple or a newer Android and don't know hoe to setup flash you're screwed

    Hey! Aren't you going to the COTA GP? Shouldn't you already be on your way? Practice starts in 64 hours! :lurk :D

    I don't know how or if I can run the multi-screen feed on my iPad. I suspect not. Doesn't bother me as I'm not going to geek out on that while watching live anyway. I may try it sometime, but not if I might make a mess so I lose it all.
    When I'm at work I stream the timing from my iPhone and listen to that over a single ear bluetooth headset. That way I can still sort of hear if somebody interrupts my listening to ask some unimportant question about work stuff.:lol3

    Had a scare here this morning. Computer wouldn't log onto the net. Took most of two and a half hours and two IT guys to get it working.
    Got the phone fired up to stream MotoGP Live, and the computer may be able to stream video. I'll try sneaking a small window in under the radar here.:evil

    Re-streaming video and it's working.:clap
