Likewise - it's now shown on free-to-air TV here, and I've tried a couple of times to get into it, but I just can't.You know, I've tried, and tried to watch NASCAR, but it just does not appeal to me in any shape of form in terms of it being a spectator sport. The last race I tried to watch was at Watkins Glenn, and during Montoya's charge to, what was it... 3rd place (somewhere in the middle of the race), the commentators were just annoying the hell out of me so I switched channels.
I think he was referring to Sprint Cup(or whatever the main championship is called in any given time) by NASCAR. Which is pretty much what people associate the term NASCAR with unless they know something about the sport.Of course NASCAR has more races on it's calendar than F1, it's a sanctioning body.
Even so, the Sprint Cup series, alone, has twice as many points races as the Formula 1 series.
I would guess it's a cost issue. LMS is still rather small series with lots of privateers and not much visibility in the media.vikiradTG2007 said:I wonder why the LMS has so few races in it... the 2008 season will soon end at Silverstone. They should make it like the old WSC, with more races and of varying distance.
Well, true... but even back in the day when I followed it regularly and Opel was around, towards the end of Opels tenure they just puddled around being backmarkers or midfielders (except for the odd win here and there), but during those times it was still exciting.Having more than two manufacturers in the series would certainly help.
I heard some comments from Mika about Herbert's sleeping habits. Apparently he always slept naked and they had to share a room several times during their time at Lotus.And guess who it was that saw him...

Good ol' Johnny Herbert. They were teammates at Lotus at the time.
