European races start at 10pm live, broadcasted 10.45pm. I watch live streaming to save time.
Canada, Brazil approx. 3am. I just videotape it.

Being in the U.S. most races start at 7:30 or 8:00 am. So not really a problem if i didn't have a long night at the Local Bar. And if i did a big bowl of cereal and cold milk will start me out right and keep me there. Now for the other races like take place in the land of the rising sun and that region i try to sleep before hand and get up to watch it. Unless im at the bar (which) i just might be on a saturday night. Hell i've left my wife at the bar with our friends to go home and watch qualifing and the race only to show back up later, or have them meet me at home for the after bar festivities. No one really understands my passion for the sport and i try to spread the knowledge but only my wife understands. Plain and simple, good food, good drinks, and a great race from Kimi will keep me watching the whole race and Post race.

Aww, you shouldnt be complaining so much, it sounds like most places in the world have one or two midnight races, in Australia, the only race broadcast before 11pm is the Australia GP, with most starting around 1-2 Am

Nice answer.

OFFTOPIC, do you know anything about a school swing band from Suffolk, England that came to Norfolk Virginia like either late last year or early next year? That was like half my friends there.. :wave: Small world, perhaps..

I don't watch the ones on at Midnight, as they re-run it on ITV, but if it's 4am or later I can wake up then and the T.V keeps me up!

That's why I have a DVR to record the races. I have a hard time staying awake. I get through half of the race and start drifting off. So I break away from the couch and do something else...then come back to finish.
