If there's one thing that race fans all around the world can agree on, it's that the racing was better back when. And now, we can all dive back into back when thanks to a new online streaming site.
RaceFansTV.com has just launched, and while it's got all the usual Web 2.0 bells and whistles -- news feed, community, etc. -- what sets it apart is the breadth of racing coverage it now offers. Currently, you can watch streaming races at set times. (On-demand races are available for a subscription fee of $4.99 a month.)
So what's in the mix? All of the following, according to RaceFansTV: "American LeMans, European LeMans, DTM, BTCC, WTCC, United States Rally, Paris-Dakar, British Rally, British Formula 3, Formula 3 Euro Series, Australian V8 Utes, Isle of Man TT, World Supermoto, World Supercross, European Truck Series, British Hillclimb, Nurburgring 24 Hour Race, Demolition Derby, Ferrari Challenge, Sprint Car, Star Mazda, Classic Open Wheel, an extensive library of documentaries, and much more." So, no NASCAR just yet. But perhaps soon.
Here's a teaser, watch this and then head on over to the site. Don't cost nothin':
It's an impressive collection of racers and racing, and it's further proof that the old mindset of race viewing -- show up when we tell you to, and sit through all our commercials -- is fast dying. RaceFansTV sets the bar for online race viewing pretty high; we'll see who steps up to try to clear it.
