The live motorsport is about 25 laps unlive. I hear 20 to go on the box and natsoft has the final results!!
Not really professional, they do it with football too I believe.

The whole race was so boring having it delayed gives you the chance not to watch the last 20 laps. :up:

I critisise a sport that could be and should be a sport, not a choreographed display. I still watch it on TV when I have nothing better to do.
But yes it was a boring race with the usual inconsistent officialdom. With at least 1/2 hour of delay for what was touted a 'Live'.

It would not surprise me at all if it wasn't live. Seven does that a lot.

In fact, the last few Bathursts have been delayed, which is an utter disgrace.

Bathurst was live last year, the year before they played silly buggers but that didn't fly...

Also no one else has complained of delayed coverage what state were you in?? SA??

I think 'Live' has become a devalued term. Eurosport seem to call anything 'Live' if they are covering it fully, even if it is delayed. Otherwise it is 'Highlights'.

I notice that Eurosport and BBC both cover MotoGP 'Live' but sometimes not at the same moment, so someone is being economical with the truth.

Eurosport aren't allowed cover the main Moto GP race live - has to be delayed by 1 hour.
There seem to be 1 or 2 exceptions though - I think its if BBC arent showing the race live, but this only happens once or twice a year
