F1 leaving Speed TV moving to NBC Sports

Post by Sniper919 on 10/12/2012, 1:10 pm

Below is a link to the article.

http://www.adn.com/2012/10/12/2658368/ap-sources-speed-wont-air-f1-after.html

So in case anyone from the states is unaware of the situation Fox who owns Speed is re-labling it as it new sports channel (baseball,hockey),ect and getting rid of speed. This is a big deal for racing in the US and its bad. This means we will lose F1 but also Grand-Am, V8 Supercars, FIA WRC, Continental Tire, and Le Mans. Like the article says F1 will go to NBC SPORTS NETWORK which means less coverage and crappy announcers. I don't now what FOX is thinking here, very poor move.

That's cool, wasn't the ALMS/GRAND AM merger for more tv coverage?

They were really good man. Varsha, Hobbs, Machett really made F1 interesting
