So Emilio, how long did that 5 minutes feel?
It must have been Sonny that served the penalty. I never got held. Having been held in the past though, I can tell you that the sound of cars passing by on the front straight is excruciating when you are held there.

You know you're a Miata racer when your street car is faster than your race car.

Hopefully this makes it to torrents since I can't get NBCSN.

HA!

That would require someone to care enough to record it, convert it, upload it and then seed it.

Of the likely 317 viewers of this program, I seriously doubt that will happen.

Try finding a torrent of say a Grand AM race, even that is hard to find...

Speed aired that race once and I can't find a torrent.

I'm interested in this as well, for the same reason. I "know a guy" who can magic these things, let me see what can be done.

Pretty sure what took over the reigns from racing-underground, has all that stuff.

But I don't have any invites to give out.

Of course, some of us aren't willing to pay $100+ a month for the necessary package to get SPEED (I cancelled our cable 3+ years ago) just to get it. With the fast internet we used to pay $175 a month, now just $65 for internet and hammer Netflix and companies web sites.

So I use a private torrent site to DL Quali/Race, and then some WRC/BTCC/WTCC, etc.

And currently I'm too lazy to put an antenna up on the roof to get good quality HD over the air.

My current method is to get a base cable package, then complain about the signal. This gets them to remove the digital filters at the house. And my TV decodes all the digital channels like a champ without the box.

Default Survive the 25 viewing party

Called DirecTV to get set up at the shop. Since I'm an awesome old-timey customer, they're hooking up an HD dish, receiver and DVR, labor included for... $21.60

It's called "seasonal home". So I only pay for the one monthly, just switch back and forth. Cool, so we'll have cable for the swap meets now.

Might as well make the announcement here:

Survive the 25 viewing party.
Friday March 15th, 2013 at 949 Racing
7:30pm-10:30pm
