Our favourite series is back. Antonio Pizzonia was on pole at Magny Cours: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/76582

Its such a crap series, but their isn't much racing on at the moment. Race 1 is at 10 am on Eurosport. I shall be nice and give it a chance, or not. Wink

It could be good, but I doubt it! Very Happy

STOP IT!!

I liked the racing: not so keen on the premise, but what can you do?? Just blank out the football teams and give random names to the teams, it isn't THAT bad.

And I do like the qualifying format.

The "head the head" of it I think is rather refreshing.

I saw race 3 of superleague and i am not sure. I don't like the idea of football racing teams...It should be Racing only and racing should spit on football! its an insult!

The only thing i like was the sound nice V12 Very Happy

The racing was okay, in fact in the first half it was decent. However, the grandstands were completely empty. I suppose football isn't being affected by the financial woes, if they can afford to run with empty grandstands and no Superleague fans. I still don't like the series, GP2 owns Superleague.

I agree about the noise of the V12's, they do sound brilliant.

I watched the first race while waiting for the WSBK'S. I think the reason it seems as bad as what it does is the commentator. A blind man could of done it better. Was the guy actually watching it?

The sound of the cars is quality though, Which even though I know it's a poor series does tempt me about going, just to listen to them.

I agree about the commentator, he didn't seem to know what he was going on about. Across the races i don't think there was any mention of a corner name or relative lap times, things that aren't necessarily essential but are commonplace in commentary from anyone who actually knows about the racing they are commentating on, and highlights the presence of a lack of knowledge besides whatever notes he would have had pinned to the walls of the commentary booth, which more then likely were not self-compiled.

Perhaps i am just being a little bit picky - because the racing outside the opening stage for the majority of the field wasn't great - aside from the occasional decent battle - so any flaws in the commentary were exacerbated.

I think thats the classic case with Motors TV, they have loads of obsecure series with one lonley commentator who sounds like he would like to be elsewhere. Having a sole commentator usually doesn't work well anyway.

The Donington round clashes with BTCC at Snetterton, i'm sure you'd rather go to BTCC if you were gonna travel a long distance.

Snetterton is lot further for me then what Donnington is. I didn't say I was going to go, But that I would love to hear the superleague cars. Laughing Laughing

I've seen some footage on Youtube of the race at Nurburgring last year and the cars sound awesome.

If I was going to travel to Snetterton it would be for the Btcc or BSB yes.

I saw a Superleague car today at Goodwood, hmm, it looks rather rubbish. You may as well write on the paintwork: "I'm a lonley bugger, I look shit, and no crowd loves me".

Nobody really cared about the Superleague car, thankfully.

At last years' BTCC round they ran the Superleague car to try get some interest and boy did that V12 sound good. Was at the Dymanics stand getting autographs, every time the car went past Tom Chilton stood up to see it better.
