    Love that guy, and this will be the first chance we're going to get to if he's as good as I'm hoping he is.

    I've searched and I can't find any TV or streaming. Does anyone know where we can watch this event?

    Are they streaming it themselves on Facebook? I see Sky is providing it in the UK.

    A little late to the show but it was aired on CBSSPORTSNET Sunday evening. I'd assume they will run it again. I fell asleep but O'Ward was looking like a stud and getting a lot of props from the commentators in the early rounds. Anyone that started on sector 1 was basically toast. I think I saw 1 race in what I watched where the pursuing car starting on sector 1 win.

    Thanks, I'll look for the re-airing on CBSSPORTSNET. It strikes me that if the drivers wanted to train for ROC, they would enter as many autocrosses as possible.

    Finally saw it. At the risk of posting unpopular opinion, this ROC format is dull. I would prefer more of straight forward race.

    I watched a bit. It was far from exciting.
    Give me downhill skiing or Supercross in the winter!

    I would prefer a karting race, like the old Paris Bercy Masters.

    I miss IROC, back when it lived up to its billing and before it became just another NASCAR showcase.

    it went to crap when they moved it into stadiums. The original ROC was pretty cool. they should do more of a format like global rallycross.
