The announcers are utter douchebags. Plus, they think the Volvo has four cylinders (or maybe three?). I would watch it with audio muted except I'm trying to hear the cars....


Update: they call them four cylinder cars TWICE.

They did say the turbos are the size of washing machines or something like that. Not knowing the
number of cylinders is pretty bad but then again it is probably the worst TV coverage of anything that
has ever existed. Girl Scouts selling cookies gets more TV time

This is not SpeedTV's fault
They sold their rights to their own series itself two years ago.
It's not even a complete race, just highlights that they broadcast.

(I called my very good dfriend at Speed, he told me the entire story. However, he emailing his friend who was broadcasting that and setting him straight on certain facts)

Sold them to who?
The Speed TV coverage of the SCCA Runoffs has always been far better than the WC stuff this year.

I don't know, it's an SCCA sanctioned series so I guess some yahoo from the SCCA is announcing this
