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.... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>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<br>number of cylinders is pretty bad but then again it is probably the worst TV coverage of anything that<br>has ever existed. Girl Scouts selling cookies gets more TV time

This is not SpeedTV's fault<br>They sold their rights to their own series itself two years ago.<br>It's not even a complete race, just highlights that they broadcast.<p>(I called my very good dfriend at<I> Speed</I>, he told me the entire story. However, he emailing his friend who was broadcasting that and setting him straight on certain facts)
