Interesting - not likely, but interesting. I would love to see it next year, though. Would definitely ramp up some interest.

There will be no television coverage of AMA races at Laguna this weekend.

I just saw the notice on the RRW FB page. What complete bullshit. The announced TV package stated

Quote:
CBS Sports Network will air flag-to-flag race coverage of the premier National Guard SuperBike and GoPro Daytona SportBike classes through the 2014 season.
I guess I shouldn't have assumed they would cover every race. Fook! And to be such weasels and not even tell Laguna management. This really hurts the teams and riders that get sponsorship based on the two big events. I'm fuming.

With new sports networks scuttling around cable TV like cockroaches, it beggars belief that the AMA couldn't negotiate a deal.

These sort of disappointments are an AMA specialty.

It's better than that. They told everyone--teams, sponsors, promoters, tracks, media, fans--they had a deal. And they were apparently going to let everyone show up at Laguna to discover for themselves that there would be no television coverage.

I suppose it's possible they did have a deal, and it was CBS Sports that withdrew suddenly.

Doesn't seem like anyone withdrew. The $#*%ers never had a TV deal for this weekend. This sucks on every level. When was the last time there was no television coverage (either live or tape delayed) of an AMA Pro Road Race? Early '90s maybe?

Just got this email:


MONTEREY, Calif. (July 20, 2013) -
AMA Pro Racing and Chet Burks Productions confirmed today that Sunday's GEICO Motorcycle AMA Pro Road Racing finals from Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca will be aired in a set of tape-delayed broadcasts on CBS Sports Network. The series is competing on the historic 2.238-mile circuit situated in the rolling hills above Monterey, Calif. as part of the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix alongside the international stars of MotoGP.

Flag-to-flag coverage of the AMA Pro National Guard SuperBike and AMA Pro GoPro Daytona SportBike races scheduled for Sunday afternoon will be featured in one-hour broadcasts as part of the CBS Sports Spectacular. Television broadcast airdates and times will be released as soon as they are available.

Good news but still leaves questions about coverage of Miller, XR1200 racing at Indy and AMA Pro during the WSBK weekend at Laguna. The New Jersey round is the only one confirmed to have TV coverage.

Update: The rest of the AMA Pro Road Racing season is supposedly going to be televised save the XR1200 races at Indy which can't be confirmed at this time, according to AMA Pro Racing Director of Communications Gene Crouch.

DMG needs to go to some kind of internet based coverage and give up on a TV deal. The viewership on TV must be pathetic anyway.

According to this posting on SuperBikePlanet.com AMA's audiance rivaled MotoGP and World Superbike. No mention of where the numbers came from.
