The HD Racer – June 11-13

peugeot-wins-lemans-2009This is the one week of the year where the greatest sports car drivers from around the world descend upon Le Mans, France to run the oldest sports car endurance race, and certainly the most famous: The 24 Hours of Le Mans. The SPEED channel is covering 19.5 hours of the full day race.

As if a 24 hour race weren’t enough for one weekend Formula 1 makes their trip to North America for the and only time this season for their running of the Canadian Grand Prix. SPEED has practice and qualifying as usual, but Fox has coverage of the race on Sunday at noon. At 1pm on SPEED on Sunday you can catch the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge race from Watkins Glen that was run last weekend.

If oval racing is more your thing SPPED has the truck series race on Saturday at 2:00 p.m., ESPN has the Nationwide race at 8:00 p.m., and TNT has the Sprint Cup race on Sunday at 1:00 p.m.
