MotoGP » Marc VDS pushing for Redding-Honda deal


Ah and so here is the dilemma. Not only have British companies got a notoriously bad record for sponsorship for Brit riders in MotoGP, the change to the TV coverage will make the job even harder now: SPONSOR: So MotoGP is on BBC right, so thats pretty good in getting my name out there? MARC VDS: Ah sorry, that was last year, now it's on BT Sport and ITV4. SPONSOR: Blimey so thats thats going to be well down [on viewers] than last year.....no thanks.........

WSBK » Eurosport renews World Superbike TV deal


Well Eurosport player was not that reliable last year, but it was better this year. And as this was the only BSkyB delivered channel I watched it made more sense to pay 2.99 a month (internet) rather than close to 30 quid a month. Don't think that the BBC would have been interested in it anyway. Well you can listen to Toby and Julian, just don't watch BBC and watch the re-run on Eurosport?!

F1 » Ecclestone says BBC/Sky explanation 'not realistic'


@107SS2009 Presentationally Whitmarsh will want to give the impression that he is "upset" by the plans and sympathetic to those, who choose not to sign up with Sky. But in reality if his sponsors don't share his concerns, then why should he? I believe that many F1 UK fans will cough up, to see all faces live. So the global impact on sponsors is as close to zero as makes no odds. Also I admire the Beeb. They weren't going to bend over for Bernie. This just exposes him as the greedy @x!% that he is. PS I don't smoke

F1 » Ecclestone says BBC/Sky explanation 'not realistic'


I've said this before and whilst the article "claims" sponsors will not be happy and leave, this is (sorry to say) rubbish. The UK is an established market and the difference in numbers of UK viewers who will not watch F1 completely (because of this) is microscopic compared to the global audience. If it stays FTA in China, India, South America etc. sponsors will not care about UK. You might Disagree with my comment but this is the crux of it. Whitmarsh is merely speaking through loyalty to the Brit fans. His sponsors aren't bothered if it goes to Sky. Sponsors will say "UK viewers will still watch the highlights so we’re still visible, so we're happy".
