Motorsport Calendar 2017: February

25 Jan , 2017 Compare Car Insurance Now

Another month with a reasonably small amount of motorsport on offer but there is something on offer on each weekend to keep you all entertained.
We start in the southern hemisphere.

3rd-5th February

The Bathurst 12 Hour. One week after the Daytona 24 hour, another big endurance event to give UK fans something to watch on a Saturday night, starting at around 7pm UK time and running until Sunday breakfast.

The cream of international GT Stars head to “The Mountain” armed with the best of the best of the current GT machinery on offer. Radio Le Mans and the event website should bring the pictures and commentary.



10th-12th February

BT Sport, Channel 5 & Red Bull TV (App store) bring coverage of the second event of the ’17 WRC championship from Sweden.

18th February

Channel 5 should also be bringing the action from Argentina a week later as the 1st 2017 round of season 3 of the Formula E championship gets underway.

25th-26th February

Back to Australia, Phillip Island this time as the World Superbike Championship gets underway with two races (one Saturday one Sunday) Via Eurosport. While in America, the NASCAR season begins its pretty much continuous trek across the country with the Daytona 500.
Premier sports should cover this and the rest of the season on an almost weekly basis.
So a fairly sparse calendar for February but rest assured that will change in the coming months.
