The bbc reporting of le mans was not exactly great, a bit on thin side, a small article on the website mentions eastwood being the first northern irishman to win since 2010.

Thatís wrong. Even if they donít show other motor sports, they can still report on other major or less major motorsports. F1 will always be king, but what about giving a bit to WRC, Indy, NASCAR, WEC, BTCC et al?

But the Biased Broadcasting Company is not right about much these days, and they wonder why more and more people do not pay the licence fee.

Letís not go there. It just needs to make sure it is still the place to go to by default. Just needs to broaden itís horizon a bit

Not tv, but my local paper had a paragraph about the race in the sports section today. Wasn't expecting that to be honest, but they did manage an Alonso reference in those few sentences!

I guess the Mail has more important things to report. They concentrate more on the bigger sports events to be frank or rather big sports events that have a big following

The mail and most papers pander to the lower levels of society so soccer is covered, and then rugby/cricket gets some coverage, F1 gets coverage despite attendance at any GP being a fraction of le mans attendance. However the quiz section in the mail is ok and it only cost 70p also so much cheaper than the times/telegraph
