Starting at 9:30 a.m. ET, there will be twenty-four hours of brilliant racing on Belgium’s fantastic Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps that won’t see a second of air time on American television. The solution? Watch it all right here via Nismo.tv’s livestream.
What is the Spa 24 Hours, and why should you care? It’s a race that started just one year after the first 24 Hours of Le Mans, running for a full day on the historic Spa circuit. Currently, it is a part of the Blancpain Endurance Series, which ensures that some of the coolest GT racers in the world will be showing up.
The cars aren’t the only things to watch in this race. Alex Zanardi, who lost his legs in a 2001 CART crash, will be sharing a specially equipped BMW Z4 GTE with teammates for the first time ever. Nissan is sending some of GT Academy’s finest. V8 Supercar favorites Shane van Gisbergen and Craig Lowndes are also making the trip up to Spa.
So, Nismo.tv is hosting this livestream of the race, which you can watch in its entirety here:

The endurance experts at Radio Le Mans will be providing commentary so you won’t miss a second of the action.
In the meantime, here’s a full-360-degree onboard from the Nismo folks from one of the practice sessions to show why this race is so awesome. Watch Olivier Pla hustle a GT-R all around the famous circuit:
Spa is one of the most famous tracks in the world for a reason, and the long, crazy laps are going to be a real treat to watch. Tune in today and don’t miss a second.
