If you are new to motorsport, or just want to find things to watch when you’re bored, there are a vast variety of racing series that aren’t blocked behind paywalls, like the bigger racing series.


One of these series is British GT. This is a series mainly based in England with a one off race in Spa-Francorchamps. The races range from one to three hours (Silverstone 500 exclusive) and are very competitive multi-class racing between GT3 and GT4. This series is run by the SRO(leader in modern GT racing), who broadcast all races live on the GTWorld YouTube channel alongside some other series run by the SRO.

A slightly better known series would be the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) , a hyper-competitive championship based in Europe with a very heavy multiclass grid full of talented drivers. The races are 4 hours long and always have a battle on track within the multiple classes (LMP2 LMP3 and GTE). This series runs alongside the Le Mans Cup, a smaller but still competitive racing series with multiple classes. Together they run as a feeder series for WEC(World Endurance Championship) and top level endurance racing. Both are available from the YouTube channels of the respective series.


Formula Regional Championships are always a good watch (via ACI Sport)

A series group that is almost always competitive, as well as an enjoyable watch would be the Regional Formula Championships and the Formula 3 or Formula 4 series which tend to be on YouTube, with very strong fields of young drivers hoping for success in top level motorsport, making for good racing.
