As for the race, it got better as it went on. The second half was far moreinteresting than the first. Not sure all the elements came off. I know F1Yorkshire said to keep it out but the biggest problem was the coverage. For a brand new event it needed to be well explained, clear and easy to follow. Instead we got poor presentation, unclear graphics, dull commentary and dull tv pictures. Too much time on the last two laps was spent showing the pictures inside the team garages for example.
On track the cars did look slow compared to what we are used to and the track was awful. There was an area of track that looked too narrow for two cars to run side by side!!!
The last problem is that now there is a bit of a buzz around the series, which plonker scheduled the next race to be four weeks away!! There is no way that the limited amount of interest now generated can be sustained for that long. It should have been back to back or at least only two weeks.
Will I watch again? Yes but ITV need to sort out their craptastic coverage!
