I wonder how Bob Varsha feels now after not moving over to NBC Sports for the F1 coverage with Machett and Hobbs

That channel died when it became speed. Speedvision was awesome! When they lost F1 it was the last nail in the coffin.

Directv has a channel called "Velocity" now. I'm not sure how long it's been part of the lineup but Barret Jackson, and Mecum are on there now....it might have racing coverage too. Check it out.

I found that interesting too. It was like he said, well, I've been with the fox group for 10 years, I better stay! Then half way through the F1 season he jumped ship anyway.

I'll stick to d/l'ing the races and watching them on my PC. Ralph Sheheen is a fucking douche, and Randy Mamola just doesn't belong on television. :2cents:
HAHA true story! I can't stand watching US commentators on Moto racing, GP or AMA. Anyone interested in a good d/l source for MotoGP races PM me, I watch all of the MotoGP races from BBC Sport, way better coverage!

I get the BBC feed in Canada and have only seen a couple Speed rebroadcasts of races here , they sucked compared to the BBC feed and no picture in picture during the commercial breaks either

I did however watch F1 Debrief religiously and really miss that show

OK, I did a little research (google fu), he apparently is filling in for Diffey when he is attending Indy races.

Another topic, did Ralph Sheheen marry the bosses daughter over at Fox or something? I can't understand how they keep that guy on the air. I used to be a die hard WRC fan before speed dropped it, and I couldn't stand to watch it with Ralph. Supercross is just as bad.

I think Varsha was still under contract with Speed to do other stuff like Barrett-Jackson and stuff so that's why he didn't move over to NBC. He has sat in for Diffey at least twice now so I'm sure it will be a matter of time before the moves over as well. Agreed that Sheheen is painful to listen to.

Yep, same here. Either BBC Sport or British Eurosport. Sometimes Julian Ryder is hilarious to listen to.

I met Matt Roberts and the blonde (can't remember her name) that used to do the pre-race interviews at Laguna Seca in 2011.

Velocity is the rebranded Universal HD channel on my cable. Part of the Discovery family. Not completely awful, but it's not really a motorsports channel, either.

Their EXCESSIVE hand jestures are so annoying, they go out of their way to flail their hands around. I had to quit watching the show.

I think coverage of MotoGP has been better since it's gone to Fox Sports 1. IMO.

This Irritates the SH!T outta me.. I mean we still have Velocity, but Like you, I had a Saturday routine, of watching shows like Gears in the morning on Speed, then switching over to Spike for the Power Block... Although it seemed Gears was a bit "dated"... (Stacey! The 80s called and they need their mullet back!! lol), it was still good to watch projects. Now I have a gaping hole in my Saturday routine..

And while we are on this subject, I'm really getting sick of all the d@mn channel movement on Comcast these days too! I really don't need anymore friggen Spanish channels added. I'm not real fond of paying for things I don't need or watch..
