was looking forward to watching nascar this year but this sucks! last year i was able to watch nascar on open access for free no we have to pay sky to be able to watch it how unfair is that. you want more people watching nascar how is this going to help by forcing people to pay to watch it just another way to rip people off. thats another form of motorsport gone then to be able to watch on tv

I already pay SKY £70 + for mostly channels I have never watched !!!!
Having taken on board Sky TV from the early days, my number one interest has always been NASCAR, and following the races from the pitiful coverage on Eurosport with some of the worst commentating in motorsport, to the budget coverage on Open Access, but at least it was free !!! Within a few years the Sky subscription will take over from Monthly House Mortgage Payment as the Number One monthly household expense !!!

Why has nascar gone to a s**t channel you have to pay for. I have loved the racing for the last two years, and now some crappy channel has the rights and will charge you for the chance to watch some great racing. They don't have anything good on that channel so I guess I won't be watching nascar this season.

Once again the viewer gets shafted. If it's not paying through the nose for Sky you then get hammered for yet another pay for view channel.

Whu can't we get free US sports coverage, or at least get it in a single 'all-in' package at a sensible price. I love Nascar but am not willing to fork out another £84.00 for another channel that I will only watch one sport on!!!

£6.99 for 4 races a month. uninterrupted, USA pre race show, commentators, etc etc. I don't subscribe to SKY "Football" sorry Sports anyway, so the cost is minimal for the hours of "good quality feed". the Yanks have to pay to watch it, so why shouldn't we. just be thankful Sky don't have it, so we don't have to suffer the intolerable Studio Idiots !

At least its better value than overpriced coverage for WRC on another subsciption channel.
If you pay for 12 months in one go its only £70.
Lasts nights coverage had much better picture quality than Open Access ever achieved.
Looking forward to more entertainment from the good old boys!

it is costing us more and more money to view motorsports on these so called sports channels with deminishing coverage. Can somebody tell me when poker became a sport?????????
