Actually there are 3 different time in this article 4PM local time in the text of the article, 5PM in the 1st table and 6PM in the 2nd table. I think the last one is the good one, so add 1 hour to the start of the finals in the 1st table.

Yes, noon EST is the start for all finals sessions.

Finals start at 5pm in the UK not 4pm (we’re in BST which is already GMT+1, and the finals are GMT+2)

Bit annoying prelims aren’t on BBC but oh well

2am for the finals is a bit unfortunate.

The sessions start at 10.00 and 18.00 local time, so that’s 9.00 and 17.00 in the UK, 4.00 and noon for EST, and 1am/9am on PST.

Please tidy up the first table and the text before it.

Good question

Can somebody have a word with Hungarian tv , the fancy side and overhead cameras are rubbish in the context of the race , you cannot see who is winning , who is moving up until the camera angle changes at the end . Poor coverage of every race so far
