MotoGP » Factory engine for 2015 Open Honda


welshy: HRC stated that stoner did a 0.03 secs slower on an open machine than a factory bike while testing it's a complete joke of themselves my guessing it's down to money grabbing! !
Honda were clever/careful with their wording in that interview, Nakamoto didn't say it was Stoner that was riding the bike, only that is was a Honda test rider and that Stoner was a Honda test rider (2 separate facts).

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


TheLucaFormat: It's not rocket science! BT charge so much for us to watch their channels. I don't believe Eurosport charge a frickin penny
I disagree with this... BT Sport is free for me bundled with my broadband, if I wanted Eurosport I would need to pay for Sky which is never going to happen. In comparison to the BBC coverage I much prefer BT Sport. You always know they are going to show it and not ignore it for a bunch of hippies singing on a farm. You always get to see Moto 2 and 3 without needing to search for them and there is no Charlie Cox. One point in relation to the numbers I believe a lot of viewers watch online or via the App which is not recorded in the reported viewing numbers.

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


JedPB67: I'd like to know how these figures are calculated as when a GP doesn't clash with BSB I watch it live with my friends and there's 10-14 of us watching it off one tv
Search for BARB, they are the company that collect viewing figures for the UK. Basically there are about 5200 households that have a special device that records how many people in that room are watching TV and they calculate the overall figures based on that. You and your 14 friends would only make a difference if you collect the info for BARB.

MotoGP » More UK viewers watched BSB than MotoGP?


MotoGPete: Same goes for those who watched BSB on the Eurosport online player or via the app, Xbox/PS3 app or whatever, it's a valid comparison and however you may wish to dress it up 155,000 viewers for a live MotoGP race is truly pathetic. If this continues the sponsors will walk.
I'm not arguing that 155000 TV viewers is a good figure, but when comparing the online services the Eurosport app costs money where as approx 6 Million people have access to BT Sport app included in their broadband package. I'm struggling to think of the British sponsors that will walk... PBM are leaving at the end of the year anyway, LCR signed up their British sponsor after BT Sport took over, are there any other teams with British sponsors?
