Random Motorsports Discussion ***MAY Contain Spoilers***

Post by Warren » 15 years ago

This is just a random discussion thread for questions you may want to ask, or for info you might want to post which isn't really good enough for a thread on it's own.

Yes, i have seen some of that racing. :wink: They do a lot of accidents, if I remember correctly! :shock: :lol:

We don't get very much coverage over here, which sucks. :roll:
Yeah they crash a lot :lol: . The Races are always full with action. But you get coverages of Formula 1, doesn't you??
Yeah, we get Live qualifying(2nd session) and Live race coverage. The video signal is what they call "World Feed", whatever that means. Our commentators are Rick DeBruhl(knucklehead :roll: ), David Hobbs(former driver and cool old guy :lol: ) and Steve Matchett(former Bennetton mechanic for Patrese- knows EVERYTHING about an F1 car! :shock: )

SPEED has exclusive television rights, here in the States.

SPEED's commentators are RUBBISH :twisted: The British commentators aren't much better...although, they used to be, up until the American GP in 2001 :cry: (When Murray Walker gave up commentating.)

I always want to hear english commentary in an F1 Race. It sound's great :wink: . Well the germans are a little bit boring. If there's a commercial brake during a race I switch to french TV :roll: . This is always funny :lol: .

We;ve had it a lot worse, in the past! :x Now, virtually everyone on SPEED(the channel :P ), has driven some sort of race car. They don't just have people babbling away, like in some countries. :twisted:

Not now James Allen is the main commentator :x I've always liked Ben Edwards, I'm not sure whether you know him or not...he would be a good replacement for Murray Walker (who can NEVER be replaced I might add :wink: ). And Murray Walker will ALWAYS be the best ever...although our good friend and moderator, Warren, here, seems to disagree :twisted:

Murray Walker commentated on EVERY race from 1978 - 2001. Martin Brundle is a commentator now, yes :wink: He's been a commentator since the beginning of 1997 :)

Yeah in 1996 Martin Brundle was still a Racing Driver :lol:.
In the holidays I watched a Race with an englisch Man (A McLarenfan :twisted: ). It was great because he commentated the whole race. :lol:

WHO?!? ME?!? :lol:

Well, I like Kimi, but not necessarily McLaren. I like the way Sauber brings massive talent into the picture. I like Rubino, but not really Ferrari. I'd like to see Jag - U - err do well, but they screwed the whole works, when they got rid of Rahal. Big Mistake, in my opinion. I like Renault, seems like a good team, on the "up and up". :)
