As I watched the Speed channel this morning watching formula -1 boat racing, it started to make me wonder

The show had two hours covering one class of racing, one full race, and it was interesting for small boats running in circles. These guys and girls are running over 145MPH

Now I am an offshore fanatic but

I watched Orange Beach Offshore race last weekend on speed. This show was like a highlight video for the offshore racing series

No class was shown racing for more than 7 minutes in a one hour time frame

The show covered Performance, (quick snippet) Factory classes, V, Cat, and Super Cat

All packed in a one hour show. Along with the promotions, and interviews it was very disappointing

It would have been much more enjoyable as a 2 hour show
or broke up into two one hour viewings

You see Baja road racing on TV for 2 hours, The Drakar race is to be televised over 7 days next week

BMX and skateboarders get at least an hour

I know TV is important to the sport and I am fully aware of the cost but showing what is tantamount to a preview show really isnít watching a race it is watching a promotional review show

All this talk about TV I wonder from those who deal with sponsors
Have your sponsors been satisfied with the coverage they got when the races they went to were televised??? Are they happy with a quick blow by and that is it?

I understand the costs are large to say the least but arenít we better to focus or more racing and fewer times shown

I understand Orange Beach is to be run tomorrow morning again

I for one will be glued to the TV as I am a true addict but I canít help but hope that we see a bit more racing as opposed to a promo show in the future

If i am not mistaken, Last Sundays episode was the Preview and Tommorrows episode is going to be part 1.
I could be wrong, but thats the way it was done last year.

Wow, that was true offshore conditions. It made all the race entertaining, even the boats that weren't in contention.
