Speed TV has three segments this year:

Time
Le Mans-----------EDT------------PDT
15:30-22:30|--|09:30-16:30|--|06:30-13:30 The Start
06:30-10:00|--|00:30-04:00|--|21:30-01:00 Overnight Summary
13:00-16:30|--|07:00-10:30|--|04:00-07:30 The Finish

Between segments 1 and 2 they have CART qualifying, WRC Acropolis Leg 1, Mundial, Speed News, and the Toyota Atlantic race. (I'd say they could drop the WRC leg 1 'cause they replay it on Sunday, and reschedule the Atlantics - I've already pointed that out to them)

Between segments 2 and 3 they're showing infomercials. I've complained rather more bitterly to them about that one.

Fox has not responded to my emails of complaint.

I miss the 25 hour coverage from last year already.

Oh, forgot there's some absolutely necessary coverage of ARCA stock cars in between segments 1 and 2.

Well, I'd be willing to marshall a letter to be sent to Speed/Fox. As can be seen in some F1 threads, complaints on paper tend to get noticed in a way that email does not. Let's revisit this after the race.

In the meantime, email 'em!

Agreed, agreed, agreed Adam!

I've always extolled the virtues of those great people at Radio Le Mans, in particular Paul Truswell and Ian Titchmarsh. If you can't watch the race, tune in on the web - there is no better commentary.

Quit moaning about your coverage! I'd kill for that much, here in the UK we're only getting about 5 hours of race coverage, PATHETIC!!

And as you guys have mentioned HOORAY for Radio Le Mans!!!

PS What time is Paul Truswell doing his stint?

Yeah, but last year we had 25 hours - and 25 hours of Daytona, 13 hours of Sebring and 11 hours of P'tit Le Mans. The Grand Slam of enduros, they called it.

Then Fox bought Speedvision and repurposed it (read NASCARized it). It's one of the signs of the apocalypse, I believe.

since fox took over my speedvision consumption has been signifigcantly reduced. id like to see FIA sports cars, FIA GT, DTM, BTCC, british GT, motorsport mundial, f300, f3 etc. and to top it all off i want to see reruns of previous le mans, ALMS, FIA GT.

That was last year.

On top of Champcars' Laguna Seca qualifying, this year, the Canadian GP is on the same weekend, meaning that qualifying could interrupt the 9:30 to 4:30 EDT segment (say, 1 to 2:30?). That is on top of the Champcar qualifying (which a little bird told me was at 5:30 this year on Speed).

Folks, if you want more coverage, now's the time to get the word in, before the new schedule is set!

Unfortunately, Speed Channel felt that during the late night of the 24 Hours enduro races where ratings could not register because most of the viewers can't stay up all night.

That is because all the people at Speed TV are geriatric wimps.

The only answer is to attend these races in person. And complain bitterly to Speed TV. Send them lots of e-mails in the middle of the night while you're up listening to Radio Le Mans. Send e-mails to Radio Le Mans and cc them to Speed TV.
