Cool
saw they added another round at Donnington in Britain
I really like the schedule they have now.
One round in Austrailia.. then all the rest are in Europe.
Should make logistics much eaisier..
Hope to see more US riders out there...

Is there a Website for WSBK that shows the races live? (just like MotoGP.com does). The fookers at Speedsuck will not show the races until the following tuesday and you know what that means.. all the keyboard happy a$$hats will invade the internet and post the results even on the porn sites (Not that I hang in those places or anything ).

I don't mind doing the 7 or 8 A.M. wake up to watch a live race, I did it all last year and have become acostumed to that already... I wouldn't change it for the world.

C'mon people, cough it up!

SBK.TV

$34.95 but North America and Spain do not get live video streams but do get the full race video on-demand. I guess that means you don't get to watch until it's over and can be downloaded maybe.

I'm very much considering this as well. I could probably keep ignoring the internet until Tuesday the five times this year Speed will be delaying the Superbike broadcasts, but I'm probably even more crazed about the Supersport race and occasionally that won't be shown until a couple weeks afterward.

Full race video On-Demand... what does that even mean anyways? I'll check it out and read about it as if we're able to watch the race even a few hours later is well worth it.

I completely agree (particularly since there's no way I'll be getting up early and driving to work to watch races live).

Anyway, let me/us know what you find out.

sent an e-mail to them asking about it but I am not holding my breath hoping for a prompt response from them... Some Europeans are well known for procrastinating replies.

This is it though... verbatim

Hi Daniel,

Thank you for contacting us.

This means that you will not be able to the race live; you will be able to watch the full race from the following Tuesday. However you will be able to listen to live commentary during the race.


Hope this helps,

Regards,

SBK Web Support
P.S.: But I am the grammar challenged?

I guess that means I'll be saving $35.

I wonder if complaining directly to FG Sport about Speed Channel's crap treatment of their series would work better than the emails I've sent to Speed three years in a row now.

Hey now!!!
Watching Charpentier when he's really in a groove is amazing. I wish I could be that smooth.

Well, one of the reason I would cough up the $35.00 is because I would be able to watch the Two SBK races + the Supersport race in between.

There is another website that I am trying to see if they will have a live stream... eurosport.com

C'mon people, move your assess and start looking... Jeez

Only 4 1/2 hours left until I can go home to watch the Qatar Superbike races. Not being able to go to Superbikeplanet or Roadracing World has been killing me. Also want to watch Windtunnel from Sunday but haven't been able to for fear of seeing an intro that would ruin it. I assume Despain would be good about telling people to close their eyes and mute the tv but you never know how stupid the producers might be.

Another pisser is that Speed won't even be showing the first two Supersport races. I may be getting closer to spending that $35 afterall.

We'll see how my Mega-Millions ticket does tonight...

Toseland was friggin' launching down the short straights.
I just wish he would quit with his early turn in/point and shoot style.


Can't wait for next Tuesday.

Get this, I just happened to know that SpeedTV has an agreement with them so we can't get the live telecast until Tuesday as well... How sucky is that? They will televised bobsled because that gives them more audience and I understand because people are more interested in bobslead or cheerleading dance than watching a motorcycle race but to go to the extreme of not allowing us to watch it live is just BS... thank God MotoGP doesn't give a rat's ass what SpeedSuckA$$ wants.

Well, WSBK is bound to get boring anyways...

So, I guess we're SOL with Live video for the WSBK races then?

That's it! I'm moving to Spain

Me too. What I wouldn't give to eat a burger today while I'm watching Bayliss on his home turf. But NOOOOOO. I gotta wait til Tuesday, and I'll probably forget to record it just like I did last Tuesday.

SPEED treats WSBK like a red-headed step-child.....I mean COME ON!!!.......Bob-sledding?

It's a shame b/c the time sheets say that race 2 at Philip Island was a real barn-stormer!!!!!!!!!!

I cheated and looked at the results!

Yep, I'll be watching it from the comfort of my Office Chair... sometimes being your own boss has its perks

Other times, you have no money to pay you and you can't blame the boss...
