Suzuka Eight-Hour race

Everyone's been talking about this year's Suzuka Eight-Hour race. I remember when Colin Edwards was on the factory Honda in WSB; they used to mention him going off for this prestigious event. And when he came back he had new parts for his bike, that Honda had been saving for the event.

On Eurosport this weekend they said how Honda used to spend as much on their WSB effort as they did on this one-off, non-championship race. Apparently they have crowds of 200,000.

Also this weekend, people in the British Superbike series have been talking about Suzuka. Ryuichi Kiyonari (reigning BSB champ and leader of the series this year) is to be team-mates with James Toseland (WSB series leader) in Honda's number one team.

So, with all the hype and talk of rewards to the winners, does anyone know if it's going to be televised here in the UK?
