Here in Adelaide, the European races start at about 9.30pm. I usually watch the OneHD pre-race show which is on at 8.30, mainly for James Allen’s interviews. I watch the race which usually finishes around 11-11.30, before quite often ending up on F1F til the early hours of the morning reading the comments and Keith’s analyses.
The Asian races are usually on at around 3-4pm. I have to agree Damon about how these races are usually not as enjoyable as there are so many distractions. Also I’m quite often out during the day on weekends so its a hassle when you miss the race or have to go out midway through.
For Canada and Brazil, I usually go to bed early on the Sunday night, about 9-10pm, and get up around 2am Monday morning to watch the race. They normally finish about 4.30-5am so its a dilemma as to whether to go back to bed or not in order to get up for school at 7am.
Its going to be a hassle in the next few years as Im about to start my second last year of school, with exams for Yr11 and 12 always falling around the time of the last race. This year I’m lucky as they fall the week after.
