Crash's coverage of anything outside F1, MotoGP and World Superbikes is extremely poor to be honest. While I have a huge interest in MotoGP and WSBK I would also love it if they covered other smaller sports in more detail. At least bothering their backsides to get qualifying and race results up in a timely manner.

Agree Frank! The Indy race report is finally up. But it would be nice if Crash would move a bit faster on the IndyCar action. As usual, it's more interesting than the boring F1 race. Glad Marco Andretti still has his head in one piece.
