Consistency is good for the competitors. Assuming the TBC's are sonoma and mid Ohio as they were this year

Wonder if sprint x races will take the same weekends

I don't want to listen to the whole thing, any talk about dropping the stupid MTOD deal and putting the races on YouTube?

No mention of it in the podcast. Sounds like there are some changes coming to the PWC streaming. What that means for MToD, I don't know.

Fingers crossed. The coverage has been sub par this year

MTOD sounded like a great concept but it simply never worked. Streaming via YouTube (I'm sure SRO will happily help out with that!) is a much preferred method IMO.

There's been a lot of talk internally about both TV and streaming. Should be a lot better in 2018 and beyond.

Simple, all races streaming only on youtube. Then available for viewing afterward. Then, when you are in a country like Japan or China, you don't have to be up at 2am to watch a live race. You can wait until the morning and watch it before you know what happened and whatnot, thus no reason to watch the actual live broadcast. Same if you live in the US and can't watch the race live because of some other prior commitment but you can watch it 2 hours later. Run pop up ads and regular ads during the broadcast. Then it'll be attractive for sponsors. The current method is not. PWC needs to take the lead on this for the US. Most middle age and just about all younger people don't have or watch CBS Sports. Even here, there are about 2-3 of the same people that only ever comment or watch the races over the weekend. It shouldn't be that way but it is.

My biggest fear for motorsport is Europe and Asia going backwards into the US situation. Currently we can watch ELMS, Blancpain and a LOT more for free on YouTube. I don't want someone like Motorsport.tv coming in and putting it behind a paywall and making it less accessible. The internet, especially YouTube, has been absolutely brilliant for motorsport - we can now watch almost every series in the world, rather than just read race reports a day later. I hope this trend continues.

Agreed 100%. TCR International has it perfect for their series right now and I wish more would follow

That's ok for customer-focused championships. But major championships need TV and sponsor money, both of which need millions of fans watching.

Sportscar racing is pretty much all business to business marketing, not business to customer marketing like you see in NASCAR. Getting eyes on the product is now easier and better via free live streaming. Why would you want to sign a deal with a cable channel when thousands and thousands of people are fleeing the cable tv scene and going to online-only platforms?

Totally agree. TV deals aren't worth it any more, free streaming is far more effective, and on demand viewing only makes it easier for more people to watch your race, and therefore view your advertising
