I got an email from MotoA last week regarding their TV and streaming coverage for this year's events.
Fox Sports 2 is supposed to cover the events live but it seems not every race on a weekend is going to be shown. Only select ones. Having been to last year's event at Sonoma, there are some other classes on race day that are seriously good fun to watch. I don't know if those will be shown live or not.
I opted to go with the streaming coverage, similar to the MotoGP and WSBK subscriptions I already have. They are selling subscriptions at a pre-season sale price of $49.95 until the end of March.
I get FS2 on Hulu so that part was not an issue, I'll be able to view the races there if I want. However, having the subscription gets me all the races, no exceptions. I can watch anywhere on a phone or tablet. Best of all, if I miss anything, you know, because I'm out riding...I can just log on and watch after the fact.
I figure by subscribing and going to races in my local area, I'm supporting MotoAmerica. As they've done much to try and rescue American road racing, I'm happy to do so. I am hopeful they are successful to the point that American road racers are actively being courted by WSBK and MotoGP teams like they were in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s.
I am under no illusions. That will take time, maybe a great deal of it to restore American road racing to it's former glory. At least, it is underway and finally getting levels of coverage reaching a wider audience than the die hard race fan.......sean
