Laguna Seca Qualifying - SpeedTV

Anyone else watch it tonight? what did you think? i think it was horrible! i think out of the hour of Quali they showed about 10 mins of track time. Either the camera was focused on someone talking or showing what else was going on during the day. Speed also used their own staff for announcing, which was a joke. I'll stick to downloading Eurosports coverage, even if i can't get it in HD. I should of known better to even waste my time, but i was at a friends house that had it DVR'd, was hoping they were going to use the world feed.

speedtv sucks when they broadcast it the american way! their commentators suck and cant even have the decent respect to pronounce the names right!! one word...Lorenztho.
tho!, tho!, where/how in the fvck does the "tho" be pronounced in "zo"!?!

i only watch gp on speedtv in hd cause i have it for cable. and glad its finally in real HD. but when they switch to american broadcast commentators...hahahaha!
no comment!!!

because im on vacation and have no speedtv at home...i recently purchased the motogp subscription and have been watching past 2010 races as with current Seca GP fp1/fp2 and QP...
i can say that next season i will be gettin a full subscription for the 2010/2011 races. it is truly that much BETTER if youre a complete fan of MotoGP racing.
anyone on the fence about suscribing...i say, do it!! i wished i never waited this long.
you get to watch all racing, past and present as far back as 2002 and race highlights all the way back from 1992. along with interviews, commentaries, track tests etc etc.
and current races are in high res for the most part. best thing is theres no stupid commercials when the racing
goes down to the wire and commentators who are professional, funny and know theyre sh!t and have done their homework!

i cant say enough about suscribing. lol. im glad i did it and will continue to do it.

I'm just glad they showed qualifying.

But Speed's motorcycle coverage sucks period. Motorcycle racing fans are second class citizens compared to NASUCK. Why do we have to wait til Tuesday for 125cc and World Supersport? Imagine what an uproar there would be if the truck and Busch races were broadcast 2 days later. I hate Speed and their crappy announcers. Dorna and Infront need to sign TV deals with a US network that would actually give a crap and give us good coverage.

"Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside." - Valentino Rossi

“Now I can say my morale is reasonably high because I've discovered I have a great rapport with morphine!” he joked, adding “I hope nobody wins!” when asked about the race. - V. Rossi
