As of right now, It is on hold due to not enough production I guess but all I know is that it is on hold until further notice.

I would not worry about setting your TiVo anytime soon. I think its gonna be a while before anything airs. The money that was promised for the production never surfaced.

Last year Speed had P1 on, I guess they did not have the money this year. I wish somehow offshore racing could find away to be on TV. It would go a long way for growing the sport.

Default No $$$

At a cost of over $200,000 per programming hour, did anyone actually think that Carbonnell would be able to come up with that kind of $$$?

This number is accurate and with 8 shows, that is $1,6000,000....There is NO WAY that they can do this...I have no clue what thee indians put in their piece pipes thinking that this was realistic, but it is, what it is....

It seemed like malarky and nonsense from the start.....

When was the last time a network asked you to put their logo on your race vehicles.............??????

But....it sure got the rubes, newbies, hangers on, and chest thumpers all pumped up over nothing............

again.
