Motorsport TV audience figures

Just reading an article on BSN and came across this:

MotoGP (BT) Valencia Nov 12, final round: 187,000
WorldSBK (Eurosport) Qatar Nov 5, final round: 33,000
BSB (Eurosport) Brands Hatch Oct 22, final round: 129,000
F1 (Sky) Mexico, Oct 29, third last round: 797,000

These are the British TV audience figures for the final round of each series - really surprised me.

One I thought they'd be a lot bigger, thought there were more motorsport fans in the UK??

Two I can't believe how close the viewing figures for BSB are to MotoGP? Why??

MotoGP is a far better spectacle than BSB surely?

Anyway just thought I'd share!

BSB and F1 don't surprise me

BSB and F1 don't surprise me but yeh I would have expected a few more of us to be watching MotoGP/ WSBK?

If they put it on normal TV those numbers would v v quickly turn into millions I'm sure!!
