I have always found it quite hard to find something to do on a Saturday night. I like to think of myself as a reasonably well-rounded person, but outside of my family and close friends, I don’t have that many interests. As a result, I usually end up watching TV or browsing the internet aimlessly. Things changed last year, however, when Fim Speedway became available to stream.
What is Fim Speedway?
If you’re unfamiliar, Fim Speedway is one of the longest-running motorsport series in the world and is officially called the French Indoor Motorsports. It runs every weekend at the Stade de France in Paris, France, making it the longest-running motorsport series in the world. The races typically last about an hour and a half and since 2017, they have been available to stream live on the FS YouTube channel. While the name itself may be unfamiliar to some, the series has been around since 1895 and is one of the premier motorsport events in the world. It actually originated in England, where it was first run as an indoor sport. In France, it became an outdoor sport in the 1950s and developed into what it is today. Along with the French Open Tennis Championship, the Formal Ballroom Dancing Championship, and the International Circus Festival, the Fim Speedway is one of the major annual events in Paris. To me, it’s the perfect mix of speed and action – just what I was craving last year.
How to Watch Fim Speedway Live
As mentioned above, since 2017, the Fim Speedway has been streaming live on the FS YouTube channel. While some may consider the stream to be in French, a quick translation into English will present you with all the information you need to follow the action. According to the FS website, live episodes will be available to stream via YouTube
The first episode starts at about noon on a Saturday and the last one ends at about 6 p.m. The intermediate episodes will be available after the final result is known. To watch the races, simply click on the YouTube video icon next to the episode you want to see.
