Why is motorsport afforded so little coverage? Why is the interminable, sad and pathetic football afforded so much?
 
 

Here's a tip: NEVER watch Sky (apart from World Motorsport), but ALWAYS watch Eurosport.

Sky:
• loves to break when the Americans do (i.e. every two seconds)
• doesn't employ talented commentators able to talk over live feed
• have Jim Rosenthal-like presenters drafted in from other sports (usually crappy football)
• cut to infuriating studio analysis by so-called 'experts'
• commentators utter STUPID Americanisms in great quantity

Eurosport:
• employ talented and knowledgeable commentators
• have a wide variety of motorsport
• have few, well-timed breaks
• commentators give us analysis on the fly
• you don't have to pay for it!

If no-one watched Sky, Eurosport could buy all the NASCAR races, as well as IRL.


Here's another tip: if you like
Boremula 1 and have satellite television, switch over to the German RTL channel while ITV goes for (another) break (11229 mhz, vertical polarity). But be sure to turn it back- you might miss Murray and Martin. Other than hundreds of references to Schumacher, it's reasonably watchable.
