Re: (JRL)

Think about what you just said...Speed GT racing was sponsored by Volvo before there was a Volvo on the track <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>(and rapidly dropped less than a year or so after the first Volvo completed a lap sadly)<p>Speed Channel is a business. If there isn't enough viewership they won't broadcast regardless of whether they sponsored it or not.<br>I've checked for the past several weekends at the Speed GT series ain't there on DirecTV. I'll take a look at this weekend later tonight.<br><TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>JRL</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote"><br>Think about what you just said...

ha ha . Now in addition to Koom ba ya, we are doing a rain dance. <p>He qualified 4th and no damage or anything. Does not look like rain, either way if the car can finish the race it would be amazing for the team and give a little hope for the Volvo

Re: (racerx88)

People will argue this stuff should be in the Motorsports area but I know this is handy for many of you. I merged the 2 threads and this one thread should be enough....
