The next Retro F1: 1993 European Grand Prix, this Sunday at 1500 GMT

First of all, Happy New Year to you all!

You may be glad to hear that the fourth installment of Retro F1 is on the way this weekend. It'll take place this Sunday, 8 January at 1500 (3pm) GMT and we'll be watching the 1993 European Grand Prix at Donington Park.

Retro F1 is when we watch on old F1 race in full on YouTube, and post updates on it on Twitter as live. The race we'll be watching this Sunday has rightly gone down as a genuine all-time classic. You possibly know what happened in it but it'll be well worth another watch nevertheless!

It will be great if you can watch along with us and have some Twitter chat as we go. The ones we've done so far have been really enjoyable with lots of welcome insight and contributions on Twitter from a wide range of people as we've watched.

I also put a write up of the Twitter chat on my blog after the event. That for the previous Retro F1 event can be read here.

You can follow the chat with the #retrof1 hashtag here, and the link I'll be using to watch the race is here.

If you're anything like me, watching old F1 races is a real treat, and it'll be good to hear your thoughts through the race. I'll be delighted if you can join in.

You can work out how to convert 1500 GMT to your local time using this website.

Please let me know any questions or comments you have via the comments below or on Twitter. I'm also happy to hear requests for future Retro F1 races to watch, though bear in mind it needs to exist in full (and for free) on the internet.

See you Sunday, hopefully.

  1. This #RetroF1 was great. Although my server didn't allow me to keep the pace, I followed the 1993 European GP on my own, however I was following all the comments at #RetroF1.

    Thanks Graham. There's no doubt you had a great idea creating this #RetroF1 :)
