Isle of Man TV coverage?
« on: June 06, 2008, 03:18:22 am »
Does anyone know if this year's Isle of Man TT races will be broadcast on US TV?  I haven't seen anything since the festival started almost two weeks ago, and I didn't get any results when I searched Speed TV's website or when I tried a general search.  I'm sure that the summary footage will be broadcast in a 30 or 60 minute program eventually, but I was hoping that they would show some of the live action or at least with some minimal tape delay for time zone differences.

It's the same every year, read about the TT results and wonder when we get to view the whole event.
 My wife and I plan on going for at least a week hopefully next year.

Motorcycling is not, of itself, inherently dangerous. It is, however, extremely unforgiving of inattention, ignorance, incompetence, or stupidity

I checked a couple of popular torrent trackers (demonoid, piratebay), but didn't find anything; on the other hand, that other site is a great find, thank you! (not that I would download copyrighted content or anything like that)
