Over the past week or so, internet forums and bulletin boards across the US have been ablaze with complaints about the coverage of the French MotoGP Grand Prix at Le Mans. Or rather, the lack of it. For Speed TV - who have the broadcast rights for MotoGP in the USA - had originally planned to show the Le Mans MotoGP race only on Tuesday, two days after the event. Hundreds of emails have flooded into the station's inbox complaining about the lack of live coverage.
Those complaints appear to have helped. The French Grand Prix is now appearing on TV schedules as being shown live on Sunday morning, at 8am Eastern Time. So for anyone based in the US wanting to watch the race live, or record it to watch later, set your DVR to record, and hope the new schedule is correct. After the flood of complaints, a flood of thank you emails to Speed may help ensure that the races are all covered live.
