Lots of sites like TvByDirect.com talk about all the sports channels you can find and these even include racing channels like NASCAR and coverage of the illustrious Formula One. Ever stop and wonder about the origins of F1 and where it came from? Not a lot of racing programs really go into that so we thought today would be a good day to do that.
First defined in 1946, Formula One was coined by the Commission Sportive Internationale (CSI) of the FIA. Originally it was known as Formula A. In the beginning, the formula was based on pre-war regulations regarding the engine capacity. This brought a new balance to the way cars were engineered and put new weight and responsibilities on the driver.
Due to the time period when the races really took off there were many pre-war heroes like Achille Varzi and Tazio Nuvolari who would define the sport as we know it today. From there, the sport and the form of racing really grew in popularity until it became the event we know it as today. Formula One still endures and continues to grab the attention of race fans everywhere. It’s worth checking out if you want to see a grittier kind of race.
