Random Thoughts on Champ Car Australia Broadcast.

Watched CCWS on Brasilian rede tv. Geez they do a heck of a good job. Bigtime Bruno boosters of course. But it was a joy hearing them generate excitement over lap time differences. i am not being facetious, that is how you really cover road racing.

Watching Spike re-transmission, damn what a difference. To begin with the audio plain sucked, you couldn't hear what the broadcasters were saying. . I thought I was going crazy till I saw other people online complaining.

The feed itself - from Ozzie TV- was good. Much better camera work and production than some, if not all the domestic races.

But beyond that, how about the editing of the broadcast itself?. You have an hour and 45 minutes broadcast on a race that lasted how long? about 1 hour and 30 minutes? How about cutting out some of the crap like FCY, and filling it in with the podium ceremonies and post-race interviews at the end. Or for that matter, can't they when they cut out for commercials for the re-broadcast? Someone with TIVO could have done it better. , even with time for edits. And I don't GAF about Bronte and Kangaroos!!! Stop wasting time!

A lot of folks get their imression of the series by what they watch and hear on TV. If you can't hear the broadcast crew - who aren't that stellar to begin with, you think you are watching crap. Fix it people, put some money into this, or else you won't make money.


Something else that has annoyed me for a while too.

That Champ Car Spike commercial with RHR and the kid. The kid is supposed to be playing a racing game, and the sound effect sounds like he's playing a Space Invaders straight out of 1979.
But what a crappy editing. Too much time spent on yellows, missing stuff on commercial breaks. Someone with TIVO could have done better.
