    Oh boy, a 2nd Formula E season!

    Hey, they aren't F1, or even World Challenge level fun to watch. But they may be the early view of the future. The Formula E season 2 starts Oct 24 in China. I looked at their website and the ad said something about the "Thunder in Beijing" and I thought, "thunder... really?" These cars don't thunder! I hope they can improve on the cars some, the broadcast coverage a lot and maybe even the stupid pit stop to change cars at mid race. But I have my doubts. I'll know better after Oct 24th.

    That's that dead-silent electric race car series isn't it? Where the driver hops out of one car and into another?

    Ron, do you know what channel, date and time will cover the race?

    Not yet, but when I do, I'll post it up.

    And YY, yes and yes. It's kind of silly, but it is pretty high tech and it is racing... I guess.

    I already miss the sound of the previous F1 engines compared to the current ones as that's part of the excitement. I'm not against the Formula E (Honda Prius) racing class but I think they need to step up the production value to appeal to more viewers.

    The race from Beijing, China is on Fox Sports 1 (Comcast channel 450) live on Sat Oct 24 at 3:30 5:00 AM. I suspect it will be rebroadcast again later in the day, but I'll get it on my DVR live,

    They're racing in China? That's odd! I am curious to check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

    Re: Oh boy, a 2nd Formula E season!

    Hmm, I can't seem to find that channel and I really am curious to see the race. I love the changing-cars part.


    *Edit: okay found the channel. I had it blocked along with all those music and reality tv channels. I scanned the guide and didn't see any mention of Formula E, just lots of corrupt FIFA all weekend. Any advise on when Formula E is being rebroadcast?

    Yata, Ron is posting for Comcast Cable. And you may not be able to schedule DVR two weeks in advance.
