Racing Rivals

Was actually rather good - for those that don't know its a TV programme based on the SEAT Cupra race series. I think Natlie Barretts gonna come in for some stick though...

I thought it stank - typical ITV rubbish.

I must admit I thought it was pretty poor. My expectations were low and ITV failed to meet them - so no change there then. Suffice to say I won't be watching again.

Saw them racing at Oulton 2 weeks or so ago. They're competitive that's for sure. And I think the amount of money and coverage going into it should help the more successful drivers launch a genuine tin top career.

Saw most of the programme on Sunday - I don't know what some of you guys are expecting, but I didn't think it was too bad. However, it does seem to follow the latest trend of dumbing it down somewhat for non-racing fans and not actually including that much racing...

As for Natalie, at Oulton she looked like she might be getting the hang of it. I'd like to see any of that grid keep up with her in a rally car...

Motorsport in general can be boring on the TV for the general public. I think this is what Seat realised and therefore billed it as a documentary type programme that makes more of the characters in the sport to follow them through thick and thin.

If you turned on expecting racing you'd be dissapointed, but I wasn't so therefore quite liked the programme as a whole. They do seem to have several favourites already though...

Yes, but he's a top bloke... ;-)

ITV show was boring. The actual SEAT racing watching from trackside is a lot more entertaining.

Well worth the trip to Rockingham next weekend. (It's also free to get in!!!!) Seems to be billed as the headline event along with The Sugarbabes. F3/GT not mentioned(!)

I am looking forward to seeing them race at the Rock.
The prog does seem to focus on just a few....

I saw the programme on Sunday. I was slightly concerned for the woman (can't remember her name) who didn't know what the flags meant!

Just waiting for my Rockingham tickets to come through the post. I'm really looking forward to it. It's my first trip up there so it should be fun.

Saw the ITV1 program on Saturday it was OK, but the program on ITV2 was a lot better.

The ITV2 programmes are a 60 min expanded version of the ITV show.I did not like the way Natalie Barrett was treated.She is an experienced rally driver with some previous race experience.I don't believe she did not know the flag signals,though maybe the green flag was not in use when she last raced?

Well I've spoken to a number of non racers and they found it enjoyable TV. (note: motorsport - enjoyable) I think this is very positive indeed

The commentator did say it was her first race in 11 years, but how hard is learning what the flags mean.

As for the programme, i watched sundays but they did seem to make it out as though it was a demolition derby rather than a race, nevermind that it seemed that half the field shoulod have been black flagged for dangerous driving

It will be interesting to see the Oulton coverage - perhaps they will have an explanation for their disgraceful behaviour.........
