BBC F1 is great but motor sport coverage in Britain is getting worse 10th June 2009, 7:00
BBC F1 are doing a marvellous job in their first year back as F1′s broadcasters in Britain. That much is clear on the live blogs whenever fans outside Britain get a glimpse of BBC’s work and comment on how good it is.

F1 is great – but it’s only on 17 times a year! On other weekends I look elsewhere to get my racing fix – whether I’m in the stands or on the sofa. Here are the races I’ll make sure to see in 2009 – what are you favourites?
Seat rout the opposition in Curitiba (WTCC) 8th March 2009, 23:12

After a processional few races in South America the World Touring Car Championship put on an entertaining battle at Valencia in Spain. Rob Huff burst through to win in his Chevrolet having escaped a penalty for overtaking pole sitter Yvan Muller at the rolling start. Huff then dropped back to third, but passed the leading [...]
If Hamilton and Kubica want to race elsewhere they should be allowed to 6th May 2008, 7:00
I wouldn’t complain if the F1 calendar grew to NASCAR-like proportions with 30-plus races per year. But given the expense of moving the cars from country to country, it doesn’t seem very likely.
