ALMS: Streaming Video from the 12 Hours of Sebring

American Le Mans Series
2012 Update: Unfortunately it appears that the 2012 60th Anniversary ALMS 12 hours of Sebring won't be televised live. There will be a short 2 hour recap on Sunday on ABC at noon EST. Here's a complete list of over the air and online broadcast info. The good news is that you can view the live video feed at ESPN3 if you have access.

There's also a live broadcast page on the official ALMS website but it looks like the stream is not available to those of us in the US. So with no live TV coverage and no access to ESPN3, this will be the first time in years I've been unable to watch the 12 Hours of Sebring live. Real auto racing coverage in the US is in a sad state of affairs. I'm just going to go ahead and blame "LAFCAR" for that.

NASCAR Busch Series: Live Streaming Video Coverage from Mexico

I just noticed that NASCAR is providing a live video stream of the Busch Series road course race at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez this afternoon. The green flag drops at approximately 2:00PM EST but the online broadcast starts at 1:30. Of course it will also be available on ESPN.

Champ Car World Series Live Feed from Montreal

After only a handful of laps, today's Champ Car race in Montreal was postponed until tomorrow due to heavy rain. The series is planning to provide a live feed over the web starting at 8:00AM EST for the Atlantic cars followed by the CCWS race at 10:00AM. The race conditions today were some of the worst I've ever seen and I'm surprised there was only one incident before they threw out the red flag. Katherine Legge went into the tire barrier on lap 3 and her car suffered heavy damage but Champ Car officials will be allowing her to restart the race tomorrow. More info along with a link to the streaming live feed can be found on the Champ Car website.

Juan Pablo Montoya Signs With Ganassi Racing NASCAR Team

From the "Never Saw That Coming" departament, Chip Ganassi anounced at the Chicagoland Speedway today that he's signed Formula 1 driver Juan Pablo Montoya to his NASCAR Nextel Cup team for the 2007 season. Monotya will be driving the #42 Texaco Havoline dodge currently occupied by Casey Mears. Mears is leaving Ganassi at the end of this season to drive for Hendrick Motorsports. At the press conference earlier today, Ganassi hinted that there's an outside chance that Montoya may appear in a Busch Series race before the end of the current season, schedule permitting.

Pictures and Videos from Nurburgring Nordschleife 24 Hrs

24h-Rennen.de has quite a few pictures and videos of the endurance race that took place at Nurburgring Nordschleife over the weekend. The site is in German but navigating is straight forward enough. It's too bad that this years race happened to be the same weekend as the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Here's hoping the Speed Channel will be broadcasting a highlights special like they did last year. If I happen to see a listing for coverage of this year's race, I'll post the air times.
