Big Road Racing Weekend Coming Up

Discussion in 'Racing, Motorsports, and Track Days' at netrider.net.au started by rc36, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. This weekend sees the 6th Round of the World Superbike Championship from Imola and the 7th Round of the MotoGP Championship from Assen.

    Highlights for Australian watchers is of course having Aussie riders presently occupying 1st and 3rd place in the SBK Championship and the "guest" ride by Anthony West on a Honda in the 250cc race at Assen.

    Does someobody have free-to-air and Pay TV telecast times??

    Remember that the MotoGP races are on Saturday, as no racing is allowed on Sunday in the Netherlands.

  2. Superbike Championship (god knows what round they will replay!) on Ten Sunday 1:00pm.

    MotoGP coverage from 11:59PM Saturday night on ten.

    Don't miss the 'Key of David' on ten at 4:30am for some right-wing religious evangelism.

  4. Heard that there was going to be a clash with the cricket on Fox so they were shifting it to Main Event channel and you would not need to pay for it. (Read it from another member on this site).

  7. Hey Dan, right-wing religious evangelism isn't so bad, it's the Benny Hinns of the world ya gotta watch out for, like, who's paying for his expensive jewellery? I'll give you three guesses and you won't need the last two.
