    The ETCC producers stink as usual

    They cut to commercial just before they hit the first corner...real smart. They're always trying those little electronic bill-board monitors during the race with hilarious results. I remember the announcer going ballistic last year on the editors during the race for horrible camera choice.

    The picture quality was better though

    That was a strange place for the first break. The billboard style of showing two views at once was interesting at times last year, but not very effective this time. The quality of the picture was much better this year than last. The conversion from PAL to NTSC (if it happened at all) was much better. I didn't notice any of the artifacts that were present last year. I enjoyed the coverage a lot and will be looking for all of the races.<br>2002 AW/IR M3/SMG

    looks like a cheap re-edit from a Eurosport feed.

    It was just a rebroadcast of Eurosport

    What's wrong with that? Would you rather have someone talk over the tape after the fact? Hard to say how cheap it was. I thought it was great.<br>2002 AW/IR M3/SMG

    Kinda missed all the salient points of the race...

    ...but better than nothing. It was edited, even the "live" race. Eurosport is not THAT bad.<br><img src="http://homepage.mac.com/booboo/.Pictures/axis.jpg"height=180 width=180>

    all races I see on Speed Channel here stinks

    the cameras always glue on the fastest car. who cares about the "solo performer", I think the race is more exciting with actions i.e. battle for 2nd, 3rd, 5th or even 10th is much better to watch.

    taking 24h Rolex as an example. ALL I see is a solo performance of 1 freaknig car. They may show me GT/GTS battle for like 15 second, then they get back to the fastest guy of prototype.
