When the BBC lost F1 I wasn't overly fussed - F1 has got terrible over the last few years with fakery used to replace real racing (Kers, DRS, deliberately crap tyres etc).

But I *love* MotoGP (and contrary to other here I actually like Cox and Parish for the enthusiasm that they show - and they make as many mistakes as Toby and Moody during the course of a race anyway :p )

Do I take a bloody expensive subscription to a pay channel for the Dutch coverage - with crap commentators, or do I give up watching altogether.... :( Not happy!

On the bright side I will get my summer weekends back!

I can't believe this has happened. Why the hell would I pay another £15 a month just to watch one channel?!! No thanks! I have written to the TVProduction section of Dorna to express my disappointment and to find out if the fans can get this changed. I know the answer will probably be no but you can still try. I have also included a link to all users comments here so lets hope something changes.

I think we have a certain Marc Marquez to blame for this! His recent escapades on track have prompted BT to invest heavily in the rights. Sadly, this will be my last year watching the sport I have loved. After the Flag on Youtube it is :(

Ha No mate no. What I am saying is Yes Free to air is better but in the end it is a business and like it or not it has to make money. Now if they charge for it they will have to improve the coverage, And IF they get close to the amount the F1 channel shows then this will be a step up in the UK. We can all moan but I am sure there will be highlight coverage etc elsewhere and Eurosport may still get a smiliar deal as the BT deal will not be the same across Europe will it not? At this point we all no l
