Me neither.

If its not on the BBC I wont be watching it. I`ll pay a monthly £5 and watch WSBK. 
This year promises to be a good one, but the offering over the last few years has been woeful, with the scanty grids and only the possibility of a couple of potential winners. Dorna have`nt got a great product to sell so the Beeb should afford it.

MotoGP on BBC

No Moto2, No Moto3, No Practice and MotoGP only providing there is nothing important on like Golf. Giving exclusive rites to the BBC is a joke. Let them screen it by all means but for goodness sake give Eurosport it's FULL coverage back.

Anyone but Sky

I don't care who shows MotoGP as long as it's not Sky. Absolute scumbags.

The BBC do a decent enough job and for the other classes I just watch Eurosport. I like Julian Ryder, but Toby Moody is the most know-it-all smug git on TV. They should replace him with Steve Day, who is far better (in my opinion). My favourite commentry team by a mile is Jack n Jim on WSBK/BSB


By the way ow01 don't underestimate Azi, she knows her stuff, and has even done Colin Edward's Texas Tornado Bootcamp.

I've no problem with BBC, ITV or whatever showing MotoGP free to air. Just as long as Eurosport can show it all in real time as well. The last few years of Eurosport 1hr delayed with BBC more or less live has sucked. I'd rather watch BBC with the sound off and listen to commentary direct from And yes, please keep it out of the hands of Sky Sports unless they show it free to air.
