Dang! I missed the Rolex 24! I despise not having the Speed Channel anymore!

Checking out the schedule for the year on the IMSA site
IMSA | TUDOR United SportsCar Championship | Upcoming Events
They don't have any additional TV information for the whole year.
I loved the Grand Am Rolex Series and never missed a race on TV.
Anyone else frustrated?

IMSA have not done themselves any favors following the Sebring debacle. They need to get their ducks in a row if they want this series to succeed. Now they are at risk of losing one of their teams due to the mistake made in penalizing the Weathertech Porsche, even when clear video evidence exonerated them. Disappointing.

They are just having teething problems is all, they will get it sorted. Sebring was a waste of time though, not sure if they could really be blaimed, but it was like 3 laps under green, an hour under yellow, 3 laps under green, hour under yellow the WHOLE TIME.

Scott Tucker and Level 5 Motorsports have already pulled all their entries from Tudor. They are looking at PWC, just like a lot of guys.

It's been said, teething. Brand new series, new rules, new everything. I know the DP guys are getting upset that they are continually having to fork over more dough to make their cars slower, so that the protos can be more competitive.

On a side note, anyone know where the hell v8 supercars is being televised in the US?

From what I have heard, the V8s aren't even being shown live in Australia this year. They have a terrible TV package. I think a couple of the bigger races like Bathurst are supposed to be on Fox Sports 2, but I'm sure it ill be at 3am on a Tuesday..

That's a brand new television package they signed too. Great. That's a gigantic motorsports travesty. Some of the most exciting wheel to wheel action you can find in racing, and helps to fill the gaps between F1, and Tudor.

I will say one nice thing about the Tudor Championship, they are posting the full race broadcast on Youtube within a few days of the race! I have enjoyed what I have seen.

Not having V8 Supercars is killing me! I am such a fan of Holden I converted a Pontiac G8 to Holden Commodore Spec! I also miss WRC on Speed, and let's not forget the death of Speed also meant no more DTM which was darn near as good as V8 Supercars.
