I didn't get to see the whole thing, but it was something about Volvo Germany has this driving lesson for people to participate and learn how to drive better.<P>Anyone watched that or knows anything about this kinda program?

Yeah, I have seen that on Speedvision twice. It was a segment from some European show, and it had all of the newer Volvo's to test out your driving skills in Germany on some track. It looks really cool.<P>-Drew

Yeah, I saw that a couple nights ago. I think when I saw it, it was near some show about "supercars", which is mainly why I watched it. I think that's great.<P>

yups.. just caught a bit of this same show a few minutes ago... a show called Motorvision.<P>I think they said it cost around $1000, and is hosted at the Nurburgring in Germany. There was a .de url on the car doors.. wish I could have made it out more clearly.<P><P>

The URL was just <A HREF="http://www.volvocars.de" TARGET=_blank>www.volvocars.de</A> <P>I'd like to take on that skid plate - that really looked like fun!<P>Motorvision is a really cool show. They recently had a comparison of the Audi Allroad and Volvo V70XC. Also, you get to see a lot of cars - and engines - tested that we don't get to see in the states.<P>

Good Man Kai! Dish Network is the way to go! Keep the satellite industry going! Keep me employed!<P>Yeah, Speedvision has not sold out to NASCAR. They've got a lot of interesting regular shows like Motorvision, AutoWeek, MotorWeek, Motor Trend TV, Legends of Motorsport, Car & Track, etc... and they cover a lot of GT and Touring Car, Rally, and vintage events. Speedvision and Outdoor Life Network (for the cycling coverage) were two major reasons I got satellite TV.<P>

Yeah, I was watching Speedvision last night and they basically had WRC on the whole night. It was pretty cool to see the highlights of the whole season.<P>I have Comcast cable and get around 80 channels. I really want to get Direct TV, but they don't offer local channels in my area.<P>-Drew

yeah, I have Dish Network as well. We get the Spanish package, and channel 498 is free along with it, that's a great perk for the Spanish package. Haha, anyways, so long as it isn't raining outside, or there are absolutely NO clouds in site, the dish works... it's very picky about the weather, though.<P>Speedvision's a great network, it has some great shows, like MotorWeek, and my favorite is all of their GT and Touring Car coverage.<P>

I can get it just fine on my TV w/no cable and rabbit ears.<P>
