Default SpeedTV's coverage of WRC

What's w/ SpeedTV's coverage of WRC?

Rally-XS on Wednesday night,
Rally coverage Thursday night,
Nothing on Saturday except a repeat of XS,
Rally coverage on Sunday.
Rally X-tra on Monday.

Does that mean they're no longer doing same-day coverage? Major bummer.

Yep, you are right and we are not happy about it. There's been a few threads on this subject including petitions etc..

Some people are unhappy about it, some realize that there was a lot of junk in the same-day stuff, that will be excised with the two-hour long, single show that Speed Channel will now use for the WRC coverage.

I went through some of my WRC coverage, where I taped everything, then excised the commercials and redundancies (SP mode), and the longest tape is 1:53 and change.

Should be great, they've saved us the editing - now we will have an action packed 2-hour show.

Now do I record one 2-hour show at SP or two 2-hour shows at EP in order to squeeze on to one DVD?

Whoa this is news to me. I liked having the same day coverage but it was kind of hard to keep up with. And it does get kind of silly when you have 7 straight minutes of in car footage where the camera barely sees out of the car and all you can hear is a Finish co-driver. People would walk in the room and say, "WTH are you watching ???"
